Cantóirí choir (of which I am a member) is lucky enough to be have been asked to perform in the Spiegeltent during this year's Dublin Fringe Festival. The Spiegeltent is an old circus-like structure that tours festival venues around Europe and - as the name suggests - is covered on the inside by walls of mirrors. To make sure we are on top form, we have had to schedule four additional rehearsals in September. Here's hoping all our tenors and basses turn up, as we are desperately short of men!
My article about the "Three Types of Website Content" attracted some comments from David Lee King. David writes that "nothing on [his] library’s website is persuading, selling, or reassuring. It’s all about providing information and providing access to that information." In order to clarify my ideas I have posted a response on David's site.
Alleluia! My book is finally finished. After eighteen months, in which it transformed itself from a casual project into my constant companion - The Website Manager's Handbook - is now available for purchase. Thanks to all those who assisted me during that time. Particular gratitude is due to Ronan Diffily (my brother), Conor Clarke, John Carton, Ann Fitzpatrick and Gerry McGovern. Thanks also to my girlfriend Nina for her humour when listening to me proclaim (umpteen times) "Just one more draft and I'm done". Nina, now it is for real!
I am happy to report that I have received the final printed draft of my new book "The Website Manager's Handbook". The next few days will be spent on one final proofreading session. All going well it should be ready by August 11th, which means the book will go on sale on Monday August 14th. In the meantime, you can whet your appetite by downloading a free chapter.
