    I agree with Barbara. The Technology Town of NC should have a much friendlier, easier to use, more reliable web site. Although Cary has historically been a leader in providing online tools and information to citizens, the Town has failed to keep up with the state of the art in web site design and operation. The Town’s current web site is old-fashioned, often cumbersome, full of broken links and more difficult to use than it ought to be.

    Like with other infrastructure, we should repair and optimize what already exists in addition to expanding to new opportunities.

    Much as I like the idea of more mobile apps and a more active Town involvement in social media, I really think that some of the basics need to be taken care of first. And the most basic is the Town website. If we assume that social media and mobile apps will at some point drive people to the website, fixing it should be on the top of the list. After that, more use of social media to publicize Town events and news. And, keep on experimenting with using tools such as WebEx to let citizens attend meetings remotely. Your last TTF meeting was a good start.

    “Hi Hal,

    Perhaps, you know who to pass this along to, or can recycle it at your task force meeting:

    Encourage the town to send emails full of hyperlinks to exact website content; this makes best use of the recipients’ time.

    • Use ordered lists for a sequence of events to be done in a certain order.
    • Use unordered lists (bullets) for items that have no sequence of order.

    Best reference ever written: Amazon: Designing Web Usability with content applicable to email etiquette.”
