Subject: New Web Design and Shakespeare on the Internet Update
Dear Faithful Subscribers,
I am sorry that it took more time than I had expected to get new web site design complete. I hope you will find the wait worthwhile.
The web site is now easier to navigate and looks clean and update-to-date with many new features and processes. Since the migration, the archive has not been completely indexed, a task that will take much time. I beg your patience regarding searches until the archive is indexed. I still have access to the old site and can do important searches for members if you send them to me. I hope that you will take the time to explore the site and send me any suggestions, omissions, or corrections: http://shaksper.net.
One place to look at is the SHAKSPER 2015 Plays and Festivals List (Updated April 14, 2015): http://shaksper.net/scholarly-resources/shakespeare-festivals-and-plays.
I have also been working and revised the “A Selected Guide to Shakespeare on the Internet”: http://shaksper.net/scholarly-resources/shakespeare-on-the-internet. The Guide has been thoroughly updated by the deleting of links that did not work, the checking of all other links (with assistance from Will Sutton), the correcting sites that have changed their Internet addresses, the reorganizing of the link taxonomy, and the adding of many additional sites.
Please join me in thanking Ron Severdia of PlayShakespeare.com for hosting the SHAKSPER web site and redesigning it. Ron Severdia is an actor <http://rontheactor.com>, the founder of PlayShakespeare.com, the creator of the best Shakespeare iPhone/iPod/iPad app, the co-author of the O'Reilly publication Using Joomla: Building Powerful and Efficient Web Sites and he is on the Leadership Team of the Joomla Project. His prior experience includes stints as Creative Director of content design, Senior Designer and then Creative Director at Young & Rubicam, DDB, Glow, and Landor Associates. He is fluent in several languages, he worked for seven years in Europe, where he won a Euro-Effie award for his creative work with Schweppes.
Enjoy the newly designed web site,
