Aug. 17, 2011 STC Silicon Valley New Website

On August 17, 2011, the STC Silicon Valley revealed its new website. Five years ago we began the difficult process of migrating an outdated site to an open source site that could be run by volunteers. Today we have reached that goal. Many people helped us, in particular, I want to thank Doug Wray, Todd Hawley and Gillian Flato. The site is dedicated to the memory of Viki Maki. Here are some of the new features:

1. A new logo, look and design to increase visibility across lighting conditions, browsers, platforms and devices.

2. A new menu structure and columns to find jobs and meetings.

3. New banners with pictures of people at STC events, keyboards (from keypunch to iPhone), and other technology specific to Silicon Valley like semiconductors, silicon wafers, satellite dishes, etc.

4. Access to Twitter and LinkedIn

5. Ad space on the Home page with a sample ad clickable to Ad submission form. If you want to reach the best technical communicators in Silicon Valley. Place an ad on this site.

Also, on August 25, 2011, the meeting hosts Jack Molisani’s presentation “When Your Ship Comes In ” at the Redwood City Chevy’s, located at 2907 El Camino Real Blvd in Redwood City. The meeting starts at 6 PM. See you there.

Apr. 19, 1996 DJCline Banner Anniversary

On April 19, 1996 I uploaded the one of my earliest banners for my website. Someone reminded me I’ve been doing regular posts for about fifteen years so I thought I’d put this up. It’s me on a trip back home that looks part Roadrunner cartoon and part Twilight Zone.

Before the website, I used to send out e-mails and printed newsletters but the website got the widest circulation. This current version designed by Doug Wray has been in daily operation for seven years. Like me, it keeps changing and keeps going. Can’t stop the op.
