I haven’t been able to shake this cold. I’m still going to work, but it’s been slowing me down. But each day gets a little bit better.
Anyway, you may have noticed that – other than this blog – I’ve slowed down on my updates to toppa.com. That’s because I’ve been working on some other web projects:
VC~Angel Roundtable: I’ve been working on this site for my friend Stewart since last summer. I enjoy working with Stewart, and the work helped keep me afloat while I looked for a full-time job. We’re just now switching hosting providers, and I implemented a site redesign. I created some no-nonsense publishing tools for the site as well. The work on this site is now winding down.
phonatic.org: I’m in the early stages of setting this site up (it’s online, but not open to the public yet). It will be “your online pho knowledgebase.” Pho is a Vietnamese beef noodle soup dish, and it inspires fanaticism among its fans (I count myself among them). The site will be Wiki-based, and I hope to turn it into “the” online resource for pho, mainly for restaurant reviews (there are thousands of pho restaurants around the world). There’s nothing more delicious than a good bowl of pho, and nothing more disappointing than a bad one. So I’m hoping other phonatics will contribute to the site.
I’m also expecting to resume work soon on dracoconstruction.com (not currently online), which is for the contractor who managed most of the work on our San Mateo house.
I also want to build some user-friendly, real-estate specific publishing tools on Terry Toppa’s Newport RI real estate site (my Dad!), so he can make updates to it on his own.
