Untangling the World Wide Web

On Saturday, October 5, chapter members attended a half-day workshop at Cadmus Professional Communications in the BWI area to learn about writing and designing a Web site.

Presenters Joan Cranmer of Tempest Web Publications and Merry Bruns of ScienceSites Communications led lively discussions that touched on numerous topics, including HTML and Java scripting; choosing a host and registering your domain name; site security issues; writing for your audience; presenting information concisely; building credible, authoritative content; and much more. Enthusiastic participants kept the discussion rolling right through lunch. Look for a more detailed review of the event in the Winter Quill.
