Well, I´m in my father´s home. And looks like I arrived just in time.
As you probably don´t know, he is a teacher at a local college (which he hope will soon be upgraded to a university status). Anyway, he told me that they are redesigning all of the college viewable content (website, business cards etc), and asked me if I had something to sugest them. Yeah, right. I just wonder why don´t they ever learn no to ask me about things like that.
He just walked out of the computer room with a hudge list of recomendations (including netiquette [rfc1855] rules, and links to the W3.org validator and the Viewable with any browser campaign). And of course, he promissed me he would do his best to make the college adhere to these standards. I´m crossing my fingers, but considering the level of competence used to design current web site, I´m not holding my breath. (if you are trying to access it, try with a text browser; it´s a once in a lifetime experience :-)).
Anyway, today we managed to get a city mayor´s office to sign with us to change all it´s health computer network to opensource (linux, more exactly). Tomorrow, we have a new city to hit. I think maybe I´ll preach them about the anybrowser campaign ... Then again, maybe thats pushing my luck a little to far. But, maybe not.
