Director of Technology's report, September 2005

Posted by Francis Hwang | Mon Oct 3rd 2005 11:45 a.m.

Hi everyone,

It's been a hectic month, but aren't they all? While art students and
art professors all around the world were settling in with syllabi and
class schedules, here are some of the things that your perennially
under-schooled Director of Technology spent his time on:

1. The Community Campaign started.
It's that time of year again. This month, we kicked off this year's
Community Campaign. I won't go into the whole sales pitch here, but I
will say that I hope you all, users and Members, feel that Rhizome is
useful to you, and that we are listening to your input. With our small
staff, and thousands of users to support, we can't necessarily act on
every suggestion we get, of course, but we do keep them very
prominently in mind as we plan for the future.

On a smaller technical note, I'd like to mention that we try hard never
to email somebody with a solicitation if they don't want it. You can
opt-out at .

2. The search is now improved.
The search is cleaner now; I scrubbed out a lot of distracting text and
duplicate pages that were making searches a lot less useful. And don't
forget that if you're a Member, you get to augment those search results
with our Advanced Search features, including filtering by text,
artwork, member, etc.

3. I'm looking for a Design/Production intern.
Make sure to spread the word; I'm looking for a Design/Production
intern. The intern will help us out with some major upcoming projects,
as well as have an opportunity for self-directed projects, too.
