I’ve got three weeks to finish the foundation and put the finishing touches on our new Manila Website and I think I’ve actually got my brain wrapped around how this is going to work. Thank goodness. Not that I haven’t had the big picture all along, but it’s only when you start getting into the details that the complete puzzle starts falling into place. Even though there’s a lot to do, I’m very psyched about the unveiling on September 8. (No Labor Day weekend for me, however.) Today we worked out the departmental “template” which will (hopefully) satisfy the need for consistency and yet give the departments some flexibility in what they post. We decided to push pictures heavily (despite all the consent hoops that go along with that) and to set up a second Weblog for each department to use as a news site. Lots of work up front, but if it works it should be very cool. I keep thinking about collecting all of those RSS feeds from all over the place and pushing them out all over the place. Scary thing is I really think I could do this full time…really. It’s way too much fun.
So anyway, feedback or ideas are always welcomed.
