Relaunched Johns Hopkins University site

I've been saying all week that I'll post this "when the site is ready."

University of Virginia web site

I just came across the UVA web site recently. And while I've been focusing on radical streamlining of university web sites, they do such a good job of organizing the traditional "university web site for all audiences," I'd like to hear more about how they got where they are today.Any UVA folks on this forum, or does anyone here have contacts in their web group?Thanks.TimSee More
