Like A Phoenix, This Site Is Reborn

Thoughts On Presenting And Design

A couple weeks ago, I installed WordPress on a domain I had not been using so I could work on a site redesign for my wife. Little did I know at the time, but that site was actually a parked domain. BOOM went my personal site. This site. A broken site. So, this site rises again. I didn’t think it would be that big a deal, since for the past several years, I’ve been receiving weekly database backups.

LawNewz - The Legal Media Site's DNA

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

In the "About Us" section of the media site LawNetz, it says: "LawNewz is the only site for live court video, high profile criminal trials, crazy crime, celebrity justice, and smart legal analysis." Those give that legal news site its unique edge.

Two depressing sights/sites in Harare

Max Atkinson

But there were two sites which, even then, before there had been any hint of rampant hyperinflation or the hardline dictatorship of Mugabe, there were two buildings in Harare that I found rather depressing and, in retrospect, realise were totally prophetic of what lay in store for Zimbabweans.

Gentrification and Its Discontents - No One Left On-Site to Tell Stories of the "Old Neighborhood"

Commenting on Sites: ROI could be media job

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

In the early 21st century, digitals told us, if we wanted a presence on the web, to leave comments on sites.    We did that, compulsively.    Then soon enough we get very busy keeping up our own blogs, Facebook wall, websites, podcasts, and tweets.    We commented less.    Then we didn't comment at all.

HuffingtonPost.com: Do digital sites need clear niche identity?

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

But the real reason lots of former fans may be becoming impatient with Huffington is that her site no longer has a clear niche identity.  Arianna Huffington, who's at the World Economic Forum in Davos, has quickly gone from being a role model for digital immigrants to someone whose motives and actions we should be inspecting.    The most recent decision media is inspecting is the firing of unpaid HuffingtonPost.com blogger Mike Elk.

I was doing a slide makeover today for slides from a large corporation.
