Hi Heiko,

It seems like "wonkdom" is often conferred upon people who get in on 
something early and are able to speak from a consistent perspective.

Siegel was making web sites that looked like this:
http://www.dsiegel.com/home.html
when everyone else's sites looked like this:
http://www.dirtstyledesign.com

Lots of web designers cut their teeth on his book back in 1996 
because the only other how-to web design books at the time were HTML 
manuals.
