The Doors are Open

The last week has been similar to opening the rehearsal hall to an invite-only group of friends and colleagues to see parts of a production-in-process. The difference is that once the doors are open here, they do not close.

The site is now up and ready for anyone to “drop in” and to let us know what they think. New features and approaches will be rolled out in the coming weeks.

The “rehearsals” have gone well enough that - to keep the metaphor going - I am looking forward to the time when we move into the theatre. This means having access to all the possibilities - and space - of the site.

In the meantime, we have been talking about how well the tools on the site are working. Our main focus has been to ensure that the site is easy to read, and easy to navigate.

The site has not yet been fully indexed by the major search engines. However, our home page is starting to appear as a destination, so we know the full indexing is in process.

For searching within the site, Ruben has installed mnoGoSearch. [Mnogo means "many" in Russian.] This means that now you can search for a specific festival, country, time, or any combination.

Next part of the production-in-process: festival information that has been contextualized with background stories, articles and links to our affiliates.

We had a number of meetings this week to get face-face feedback on the site. Some of the comments will, I am sure, be echoed in the forum. One comment that won’t be in the forum: “Dad, this is cool.”
