- About the Site Design
Accesibilty and Web Standards: In consideration that the World Wide Web is one of the most egalitarian tools available in the World and possibly the greatest gift to democracy that has ever been created, it is very important to make Web sites free and open to as many people as possible. Consider-This.org is designed to make it easy for all people with access to the Web to view it. Streets and sidewalks are free, and the Web is the streets and sidewalks of Cyberspace. Therefore, there is a need to open it to all, not just those who buy products from a particular company. As best as I can, design consideration is given to all people such as the visually impaired. Feedback from such users regarding design would be most appreciated.
Organization: Simplicity is the goal. You can find your way around quickly and easily and dead-ends are avoided. At the end of articles most pages provide for easy navigation back to the starting point to keep the reader moving in a continuous path. From the home page everything is just a few clicks away.
Non-Proprietary: Consider-This.org does not require any proprietary software nor does it require that anyone buy any software at all to use the site. The free operating system - Linux and any of a number of free browsers can be used. It is designed around the most current and most progressive standards and should be available to all standards compliant browsers and platforms. When accessing sites it should not matter whether you are on Linux, Mac, Unix, or Windows - the site should work. The only problem that is likely to occur is with the formatting with the notable and very non-standard Netscape 4 or with browsers that are still in beta such as iCab. The content is still available with these browsers and the desigh has taken into the all too prominent and still unrepaired bugs in Micro$oft's Explorer on Windows.
Custom Sites and Software Available: Every single aspect of the site including graphics, photography, design, copy, HTML and CSS, database programming, and setting up and maintaining the server was done by me. My business, Center of Creation offers a uniquely diverse range of creative services and products from one individual. I offer any of the services listed above, individually, or in any combination. For your web site, I can provide the photos, design the logo, write the copy, create the html, javscript, and program an interactive database, and host the site. Just like the cobbler's children who had no shoes I have been too busy with other projects, such as this one, to finish my business site. This site is my main portfolio for cutting edge web design. If you have an interest in these services or any of the other services I offer, including voice-overs, computer and photography consulting, lecturing and teaching, please contact me.
