It’s only been 17 years but Dan Riggins and Katherine Dominguez at the Goodbye Blue Monday Coffee House (GBM) now have a website. Sean Hayford O’Leary did the design and construction (using WordPress, of course). I did a quick web search and found a 2005 review of the Blue Monday by the Meridian Coffeehouse blog (“All about Coffee House Culture – Running a Coffee House, Living the Coffee House Lifestyle”).

I don’t know if the City of Northfield’s 4-year old website can be easily modified (that was the plan when it was created for $85,000) but it clearly needs improvement.

Ross Currier posted about it to his NDDC blog and Lora Steil, NEG publisher for By All Means Graphics did her part and posted about it on N.org, but there’s nothing about the event on the City Calendar web page/RSS feed, nor is there anything on the City’s Liquor Store page.

I’m increasingly irritated with the City’s use, or lack thereof, of its new web site. We taxpayers paid Mike Bollinger and his crew at Livefront a ton of money — $60,000 or more — for a very good web site and some staffers aren’t using it like it’s intended to be used.
But rather than whine in general, I’ll be specific and whine about wine. (More whining about other aspects of the site to come later.)
