the international interest was gratifying, to say the least. we started with a sticker in english. that lasted one day. international enthusiasm drove german, dutch, spanish and french translations:


participant enthusiasm

for those curious about this site:

it was created by garret p. vreeland, who currently runs the dangerousmeta weblog [formerly writing at]. it was created in zope, aided by such tools as allaire homesite, bbedit 5 and 6, and adobe photoshop. it was created with no prior knowledge of zope, in about six hours of work, including creating the database portions of the site. i downloaded the online docs, and went to town. the coding is not css 1 or html 4.01 compliant, but it has been tested across windows and macintosh, in internet explorer, netscape 4.7x and 6, and the current release of icab. if anyone uncovers any incompatibilities, please send an email to garret - at - dangerousmeta dot com.
