In defence

We've been doing a lot of work on getting people's things published. As the site structure gets looked at in detail by the people who's content we're publishing they start to think about it.

As they do you can see them go through a sort of digestion process. They see other parts of the site and wonder if they should be publishing their things elsewhere rather than where they are currently being put.

So we're defending the structure a lot at the moment and it's hard work.

It's really easy to wonder if it's wrong when so many people are asking questions about it.

But then after managing to successfully defend the placement of the information you're working on it solidifies the structure even further.

We're having to be really careful because we know that the structure is new and radically different to the old Intranet and people still aren't used to it. This is causing a lot of the occurences of the 'should this not go in a different section?' question.

We also know that some things may be in the wrong place and some things may need a different title because the structure is still settling and developing.

This is a hard time..... :(

Hey Nicola! (I hope this is a proper place to leave a comment.) I'm sorry I didn' get a chance to exchange information or say goodbye to you after the conference. Even though it was work related, I hope you had as much fun as I did.

Right now I'm in Paris. French keyboards are so crazy, heh. Hopefully you'll check back on my blog every now and then (as I will with yours). A link to my email is up there too.

Again it was great meeting you guys. Cheers!
