New architecture for www.internet time
I'm in the midst of overhauling www.internettime.com. The site is morphing from a quasi-encyclopedia of eLearning into a newspaper of performance improvement. "Newspaper" isn't quite the right word. The restructured site will place more emphasis on what's going on at the moment, generally via blogs and new links. Unlike a newspaper, the site will also provide opportunities for discussion and interchange, offering the ability to comment on the blogs and take part in threaded discussions.
Private vs. public discussion
This website is about learning. Mine and yours. All too often, we only get to see the result of a web project, not the design process that got it there. If you're not interested in this level of detail, click something in the right column to skip over it.
How much outbound?
I'm still pondering how much outbound content to send. On the one hand, I don't want to add to the world's oversupply of Spam or to appear intrusive. On the other, of the 77 people who have responded to my ongoing survey thus far, 43% visit "several times a year" and 22% drop by once a month. I take this to mean that the majority of visitors read stale news.
I suppose I could distribute a newsletter. That entails beefing up the invitation to join the mail list. Perhaps a prize with each issue. An irregular distribution schedule would increase value. Maybe limit the newsletter to the cognoscenti.
