In a three-part series now with their own static pages, Derek Miller has written an excellent summary of his and his colleagues efforts to design and maintain a standards-compliant internal website with matching external website. In the first article of the series, he lists the team members, which includes Vancouver's Dave Shea who blogs at the excellent Mezzoblue, Bill Dobie, and Bill's cousin Nathan Dobie and discusses what how they prepared. In the second piece, Derek says that weblogs are the easy way out (in the future, people will just assume you have a weblog on your website), and so are going slow and using modules to write chunks of code or content that repeat often throughout a site.

The web needs good writing, so despite the jokes, those with Humanities degrees will find that they didn't waste their money and time in college while others was getting their Computer Science degrees or MBAs.
