of the 2002 Bloggies have been announced over at Fairvue Central.
installed my new design here at mikel dot org. There are still some nails and debris hanging around, but it’s OK now. And although there is still a table or two, it’s CSS and HTML 4.01 compliant. Or at least the templates were when I tested them immediately before adapting them to the various Blogger formats.
I don’t think I’ve properly welcomed Ed back to the world of webloggers. For those who haven’t read his site before, Ed manages to achieve an almost perfect mix between the professional and the personal on his site. I’m really glad he’s started up his site again in this format (although there was never really any doubt that he would).
Bill hates Word. I have not much good to say about Word, but my real hatred is reserved for PowerPoint. I don’t know what Ed is thinking, cause in my opinion PPT isn’t slick. It’s barely useable. It’s formatting options are too simplistic, the templates are godawful, and those transition effects are, well, nausea-inducing.
Worst of all though is the lack of transition-ability from Word to PPT. You think PPT would respect Word styles, even minimally, let alone give you the option to define what Word styles go where in a new slide show (which is the top of a new slide, which are the first, second, third level of the outline).
