Hopefully most of you have noticed that we have converted our homepage and future students site to CMS8 with a completely new design and some new functionality.
We are working with academic areas to get their core content into the new CMS over the next month, and will be helping develop departmental sites from now until spring.
We really appreciate the hard work that many of you put into your Web pages, especially since that is not a primary job for many of you. Several of you also are not "geeks" so dealing with the technology can be frustrating. A friend sent me a link to an online booklet, designed by the folks at Google Chrome, that explains some of the terminology that we use in Web development that may be confusing, things some of us take for granted that others understand: http://www.20thingsilearned.com. Please take a look and pass it on to anyone who's every asked you, "Why should I upgrade from Netscape?" or "AJAX, isn't that what Mom uses to clean the kitchen?"
