LOBAglobal.com

This is a note to all ex-loyolites who stumble on this page.

As you may have heard on the LOBA e-newsletter, I’m taking over the LOBA web presence. On the cards is a rewrite of the code to make it XHTML and Mozilla-aware, minor tweaks to the interface, and much better innards. Post any suggestions that you may have here, or forward a mail to webmaster .AT. lobaglobal.com. Although I won’t be aiming to bring about the radical change that Ashok and Abhishek brought out, it should be a steady evolution :-D.

Personally, I’m excited at the prospect because lobaglobal.com allows me to play over an SSH terminal, a luxury I don’t enjoy here. Once I figure out how to work the connection, I will be excited long enough to make interesting things happen.

  2. Thanks Ashok, I’ll need it. Now that I’m back I’ll work on the site more, I have a few good ideas and they might work out more than okay 😀

  3. 1. Tech/Design: Exploit the power of the Net by making the site more interactive (instead of the loba-to-visitor brochure-feel which it has now). For example, in addition to the existing guest-book, ensure space for visitors to post comments on articles, write-ups on teachers, etc.. More bloggish, I suppose. Greater sharing and participation by visitors will enrich the site, and is in tune with the LOBA spirit.

    2. Design: lobaglobal stats show that visitors head for articles or features, which are spotlighted on the homepage. Thus, quite a bit of the site ends up ‘hidden’. So, how about conveying a better picture of the depth of the site by spotlighting (on the homepage) more of the content?

    3. Tech/Content: Go the e-commerce way this year itself? Memberships, alumni products…the website can spur creativity and activity in LOBA.

    lobaglobal 2.0 (2003-04) focused on building content, generating awareness, and highlighting the potential of having a good website. Hopefully, lobaglobal 3.0 (2004-05) will focus on the tech aspects, even as it continues to build content and a contented audience.

    Best of lucko
