It's one thing to know how to build a website, it's another thing entirely to sit down and design a website while writing code.
It's impossible to keep your mind thinking about the design when every few minutes you're diving into the docs for whatever grid system you decided to use.
You can't be creative ...
... AND worry about performance
... AND write maintainable code
... AND worry about cross-browser compatibility.
It's not possible and it's not even a good idea.
You can't be both an expert designer and an expert developer. Both fields are too vast.
So "designing in the browser" is out of reach for mere mortals, right?
The skills you need for rapid prototyping are only a teeny, tiny subset of the much, much bigger front-end developer pie.

"You have no clue how much time you've saved me trying to figure this stuff out.” — Antonio Moton
I'm probably a lot like you. I make stuff for the web. I have a CS degree, but the last 11 years of my career have been a more potent teacher.
Recently, I wrote a book on web development called Sketching with CSS. I also run a training company for developers. I'm an author in Smashing Magazine and I've written some cool open source projects.
Today, I'm an entrepreneur. In the not so distant past I did the usual 9-5 thing doing web development for a couple of big companies.
I'd love to meet you on Twitter.
