New site

I made a mini-site for my company.   It’s about us going to trade shows, and gives the visitors an idea for our newest products and some company info:


I know: there’s nothing fancy or cutting edge about this site.  It’s style sheets, script, and other basics.  But it’s the first time I’ve gotten to do anything creative at all for my job.  (It did have a Flash intro originally, plus  a virtual host — to discuss the pages, in English and Spanish, but the company said it served no purpose, so it had to go.)  My job is to answer emails, and putting memos in the HTML template for our shopping cart.  So I feel good about getting to do even this level again.

  1. Awesome!

    All I do these days is schedule banner ads to run on our site. Everything creative has been taken over by Corporate or given to the “web architect” in the newsroom. My skillz…they have melted away.

    There needs to be an inexpensive option or a boot camp for retraining us old (in web years) HTML programmers in the new technologies.

  2. I’m all for inexpensive! My company doesn’t do any training and doesn’t even have college reimbursement. So I’d love to learn Flash and other technologies, but since I’m doing it on my own, I need affordable. Especially, with things like Flash, I need affordable software!

    But! You know PHP and that’s a great skill to have. I really need to get into that.

  3. All great ideas but I would also add another item to it: consider doing a virtual event/meeting. Virtual events and meetings are a great way to stay in front of customers, generate new leads and help close business already in the pipeline. These solutions are being deployed so rapidly by companies that the market is projected to exceed $18 billion by 2015. If you are interested in how you can use virtual environments attend the Virtual Edge Summit Feb. 22-23 (virtually or in-person if you are in/near Silicon Valley). There is no registration fee if you take a short survey.

    Virtual Edge Summit 2010 is the only event that focuses exclusively on providing education, training and solutions for planning and producing virtual events, meetings and communities. Over 2 days, 80 experts will share their experience with you, and be available for one-on-ones. The event also offers a rich program for featuring experts from Cisco, Stanford, IBM, Disney SAP, Oracle, Intel as well as top virtual technology and service providers like InXpo, ON24, 6Connex, Stream57, CGS VirtualEvents365, George P. Johnson, Unisfair and Digitell.

    When: February 22-23, 2010 8am until 6pm

    Where: At the Santa Clara Convention Center in California and virtually in browser based virtual environments offering 2D and 3D experiences.
