People around the office are very pleased with the new campus visit form that I’m developing for the program. I’m pretty happy with it myself. The design draws inspiration from freshmeat.net (the place to go for Linux software) and, of course, zeldman.com.
I spent today at a middle school in Rogers, Arkansas, recruiting sixth graders for Educational Talent Search, the good people for whom I work. We did magic tricks and passed out candy. I hyped the program web site. My card trick worked.
I’ve been wanting to put a good forum/guestbook/discussion board on the Academy page, but I haven’t found a decent one yet. I might have to get out my Perl book and roll my own. If anyone out there has a good recommendation, I’ll all ears. My main problem is that the board has to fit in with the rest of my design, so I’d greatly prefer one where I can tweak the HTML (I’m used to tweaking Perl scripts). I’m also open to using a PHP based one. We’ll see.
