Thanks for the descriptive email yesterday. It will probably be a few weeks, but I'll definitely get back with you about the advanced graphics optimization post.

Excellent presentation at HighEdWebDev. Thanks for teaching me something new, in a lot more depth than I would have been able to figure out on my own.

Columbia College site redesigned - take a look!

It also used internal back office terminology that was confusing to prospects.Our charge was to gear the site toward prospective students and to move all content for current students and faculty & staff behind our existing portal.We…See More
