Publishing sites
Recently, I have spent a lot of time on the Tanner Lectures website. It is a tremendous resource; here is an archive of lectures given by some of the smartest and most interesting people writing today. Similarly, I came across another archive site, this time with video. The Simpson Center hosts a lecture series featuring some tremendous speakers. Having spent some time on these sites, I wonder: What can they do better? In particular, is there something about the design or the features of the sites that could make them more interactive or more educational? Though I will always return to these sites for their content, what else could they give me as a user? For a good contrast, see the Project Runway site. Though the content is not comparable, the site is designed to keep a user busy. There are number of interactive features, and one–if one is interested in the show–can spend a good deal of time exploring.
