Kudos to anonymous city web-site designer(s)

September 22nd, 2009 · 6 Comments

Okay, me and about five people in the world care about this, but that’s what blogs are for, right? Anyway, I just have to comment on the interesting little changes that have been happening on the city’s website.

First, someone started changing the picture according to the weather so if it was snowy, there’d be a picture of the city with freshly snowed-on mountains in the distance. When it was warm and sunny, the picture changed again. I just checked in now and the picture is a video, zooming away from close-up shots of the city. (It actually made me a little motion sick, even while I was admiring it.)

That’s along with all kinds of other little rearrangements and lots more information on all kinds of city initiatives littered throughout the site, which make many reports easy to find. (If you want to read the final report on the city’s consultation with residents on the Granville Street HEAT shelters, which came out after they closed, they’re right here by the way.) A policy wonk could just spend days trolling through all the pretty new pages and end up forgetting completely to twitter for hours on end.
