As of today, this site loads pages much faster. I’ll be making some other tweaks to the site over the next few weeks, with the header, the look and feel, and the functionality.
I’m very happy with the search functionality, which suggests what you’re looking for as you type it in. Also, if you type your search phrase and click Search or press your Enter key, you’ll see a page of search results. Each search result has your keyword or keywords in boldface, with an excerpt from that post.
This functionality comes from WordPress “plugins”, which are building blocks for designing websites. I think it’s fascinating that you can browse through so many options to customize how your website looks and what it does. Of course, when a plugin doesn’t yet exist to do what you want to do, you can get the skillz and build it yourself.
I want to see more plugins and apps for democratic systems and controls. Here’s a sample of what already exists:
- A great voting app is at: http://doodle.com/
- “User permissions” with various levels of responsibility and access already exist in WordPress.
- A wiki history of edits for a post or page already exists in WordPress.
- Contact Perks (SM) packages together new functionality that I haven’t found elsewhere.
Please email me at Alex@AlexLinsker.com with your favorites. And with your questions about envisioning and building democratic companies.
