Yesterday, I completed my preliminary work on my personal website. The purpose of this site is to help instructors and students at our schools get the information they need from me about the IT and Game and Application Development programs.
All faculty members and every student in a web-related program at Globe University, Minnesota School of Business and Utah Career College has web space hosting available for free to use for professional and educational purposes.
It takes some work to make a website. I worked weekends, and this site took me three weekends to complete. If anyone is interested in making their own homepage and would like suggestions about how to proceed, I recommend a course in Basic Web Design to get started.
The web began in 1991 when Tim Berners-Lee at CERN created a markup language so he and his colleagues could easily share information with each other across computing platforms. Berners-Lee and CERN agreed that the technology was just too useful to keep to themselves and they released it to the public. Today he is still very active in the development of web standards in his role as Director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). You can read more about Berners-Lee here:
