For quite a while I've wanted to organize a face to face meeting
of campus Webmasters. We could compare notes on all aspects
of running a Web presence, including the sorts of questions
in the survey below. I think it'd be very useful to share
thoughts about technology used, maintenance and management
procedures, HTML and accessibility validation, etc.
Would folks be interested in such a face to face gathering?
Please send me a private note if you wish.
