Museums, multimedia and the web - with an emphasis on art museums
09 October 2013
My new blog, and website
After years of telling myself that I should do it, I have finally dragged my own website, www.doctordada.com into the 21st century. The old site (still viewable at www.doctordada.com/old) was all hand-coded, which is why I had to have a separate blog, here. But my new website, running on WordPress, has an integrated blog. Other advantages are:
support for other languages (which I am using for Esperanto)
a much cleaner design
I have copied over a few entries from this blog but there’ll still be useful stuff here that won’t be available there.
