Just posted to the web is our newbie article “Pssss… Have You Heard About RSS?”. This is one of the features in the Fall 2003 issue of our mcli Forum, a twice a year publication published by our office for print distribution inside our college system, and electronic everywhere else (continuously published since October 1992-200 as the Labyrinth-Forum and since then as the mcli Forum).

It’s taken actually several weeks (off and on) to get a new web design up for our Faculty in Progress Program (FIPP). The old site was not horrible, but as this faculty recruitment program is in transition from an internal internship to one open nationally, and it was to be less tied to our center, there was an opportunity to do some new web stuff here.
