A List Apart is up and running. But you probably cannot connect to it due to a meltdown at a major intermediary hub. (The site is viewable in western Canada, invisible in New York, London, and North Carolina.) Meanwhile, an earlier network problem at WaSP has been fixed.
        Servers and networks are supposed to work like lighthouses: permanent, perennial beacons. Lately they seem more like fireflies at summer's end, blinking dimly before dying. :::

The Difference Between Information Architecture and Graphic Design: Consider the structure of the page you're reading. Brand premise at the top, main content area below, links and subdivisions at right, access to previous content at bottom. Now open Derek Powazek's log. The architecture is nearly identical. The look and feel are completely different. (Derek's site is beautiful.)
        Perform this experiment with your favorite sites. You'll find the same three or four structures being used over and over again. Information architecture makes sites comprehensible. Graphic design makes them memorable. Architecture seeks the universal, graphic design the particular.

Web Standards Made Easier: Dreamweaver users may download a Go Away Old Browsers extension based on the WaSP browser upgrade's DOM sniffer, courtesy of U.K. developer Rachel Andrew. Cool.

Why We've Been So Quiet: We're (1.) finishing a large client project, (2.) working on a new (secret) noncommercial site, and (3.) quietly updating and upgrading The Web Standards Project. It's a lot of work.
        (Sadly, the WaSP seems to require two versions of every main page: one for compliant browsers, and a second, dumbed-down one for 4.0 and older browsers. Both versions are standards-compliant, but the dumbed-down version uses HTML for design. The DOM sniffer makes sure you see the best version for your browser. We hate doing this dumb stuff. It's so ... 1998.) :::
