WH-D: Web 2.0 Site Comes With Object Lesson
(Page 1 of 4 )
Just about anything related to technology is highly detail-oriented. That goes double when youíre launching a web site. This fact doesnít change when youíre launching a web 2.0 web site. And this is why Iím focusing my attention on WH-D Ė however unhappy theyíre likely to be by the time Iím done.
Many writers subscribe to services that forward press releases; Iím no exception. Often the releases go into the bit bucket, but sometimes they serve as the basis for a good article. Since Iím interested in sites adopting web 2.0 techniques, when Dan Garonís service forwarded a press release to me for WH-D, I had to check it out. Hereís a screen shot of the home page (cropped and shrunk to fit, with apologies for the reduced clarity):
The site bills itself as ďthe first-ever social web hosting directory, designed to empower users to control the positioning of listings on the site.Ē The host listings are dynamic, and change position based upon user votes. The site has been in development about three months. I suppose I should be merciful, both because three months doesnít strike me as all that long to put a site together and because I like the concept. Iím afraid I canít be, because the people who put the site together missed some important details.
