Damn, but this site is pretty. Nice, understated, good writing, not too much fluff, good copyediting (a weak spot on the web -- separates the women from the boys), and a design that fits on my monitor.

If you helped Free Willy, check OceanFutures out.

It feels a little cluttered to me..... inundated with information crammed into 640 pixels (or slightly less to compensate for the scrollbar)... But then again, I'm used to 1152x864

I spent some time there over the weekend, and I agree - it's a worthwhile and (mostly) workable site. Two problems, though. I wanted to sign up for the extended learning campaign, or whatever it's called, but apparently my Canadian postal code is too long for the programmers of their system to imagine. (Canadian postal codes are 6 characters). Same thing happened with the mailing list signup.

I then thought I'd point this out to them. Heh. I challenge you to find a contact email address on those pages.

Too bad, really. I hope they fix things.

The designer is listening.

Nope. Got a letter from her concerning a completely unrelated topic here, checked out her site, was impressed; posted it.
