08.13.01 - The Athenaeum is up. -
We've been doing a lot of work over at www.the-athenaeum.org. We're just starting to move over
a lot of the images from this site. Within a couple of weeks, however, most of the content from
this site will also be available at www.the-athenaeum.org, with a lot more advanced ways to look
at the information. Take a look!
07.12.01 - NEW WEB SITE COMING SOON! -
You've undoubtedly noticed that this site hasn't been
updated in a while. There's a reason for that. Our vision, of a complex,
interlinked "virtual encyclopedia" for the humanities, is too much work to be manually
maintained by a couple of people. I've always wanted to put in a database, to allow
pages to be created dynamically, and to allow user input. The last couple of months have
been dedicated to learning more about the options, and some experimenting. The new web site
will be located at www.the-athenaeum.org. We bought hosting and the domain
name two days ago. A default page should be available by the end of the week.
It'll be a while before we have the content from this site transferred; in the mean time, this
site will be left up. But we are very excited about the possibilities - I really think that
this will be a humanities resource unlike any other. Check out the new site in a couple of days,
offer your opinions, and share it with friends. It should be a fun ride.
