As I post this entry, my sabbatical is nearing an end. I have found it to be a most informative and educational experience. I consider myself very fortunate to:
- have been able to take time from my work at ICC. Shari – thanks for all your extra efforts. I know this has been a very busy semester for you and I appreciate your willingness to face the challenge. Also, thanks to ICC for the sabbatical. It was a very positive experience.
- have been able to work closely with Bill Cullifer (WOW, Executive Director). It has been a great pleasure to work with someone who is so passionate about the web profession and willing to donate massive amounts of personal time and money towards improving said profession. Bill – it was quite an honor to work with you.
I will soon be returning to ICC (in mid-January) and am looking forward to teaching again. For those who are reading this note, I would encourage you to continue to learn on a daily basis. For example, I recently learned how easy it is to use AJAX as an attack on web applications. If you are interested in learning more about this, I encourage you to take the CMWEB 270 class this spring. I would highly recommend the following two resources to help you keep current with web systems (both the technology and the profession).
- WOW Technology Minute (60 second MP3). You may note that I included a permanent link above to this podcast.
- WOW Blog
For those who have been noting the new look to these web pages, yes, it is a weblog. If you would like to post comments, contact me and I will add you.
