I ask here, as I have criticized those 2 groups publically - and would
like to give the possibility to reverse the criticism - again publically.
I like the overall style of your site - clean layout, good colour
but there are a number of spelling and grammar errors, (eg.
‘diagrams’ not ‘diagramms’, and the past participle of ‘feed’ is ‘fed’
not ‘feeded’), which stand out to a native English speaker.
I gues I have to apply a spell-check at minimum.
Also, your Usenet posting style is quite terse, almost like bullet
points, and your site reflects this (IMHO).
You are right.
This is my way of managing the complexity.
Flow-charts and bulleted
lists certainly have their place, but they’re a bit impersonal - maybe
some more prose would help to present your ideas better?
Again you are right.
The bulleted lists are essentially used by myself to get clarity (the
effort to rearrange a bulleted list is small)
The diagrams are used to display the same structures graphically. This
way I get more clarity and rearrange the bulleted lists.
Textual descriptions (a few exist on the site) are used (finally as
the effort to reflect changes is very high)to describe things more
And that’s where I fail mostly.
Essentially I need a native english “prose-writer” (to use your term).
Having said that, parts of the site maybe have too much information.
The people to whom you want to sell your service probably don’t want to
know the implementation details of this service.
I understand your thought.
I don’t know if you refere to the process definition, or to the research
I agree fully, that the research work (how the process has evolved)
should be not presented in the “first front”, as its not of intrest for
a target customer.
So the main menue should be freed of the “cases” and the “project”.
Instead, I should possibly add a “Sample” menue, where I publish some
I will apply those changes in the next hours.
“Making IT efficient” is certainly a noble aspiration, I hope you can
make it a profitable one but it’ll be a tough market!
Yes, there are many companies out there.
The customer list of this one is impressive:
But I don’t think that they could reengineer e.g. an open source project
or the structures of the lisp community.
I have specialized myself on public systems, like e.g. open source
projects, whilst applying a method which works exclusively via internet
All the best
Thanks a lot!
I’ve gained many things through your feedback!
