NOBLES on the Net

Editing an alumni group's website (1999- ).

Role

Planning content, editing stories, reporting.

The big picture

This was the first site I developed. Its objective was to harness and display the power of internet to strengthen bonds among old students. Inspired other alumni groups in school to set up websites.

The small steps

  • Text-heavy: This was to ensure fast downloads, as it was the early days of Internet in India. Initially, the text was not Web-friendly. Over the years, as I picked up Web-writing skills, the site became more reader-friendly.
  • 'Nostalgia' theme: Worked on the belief that a good alumni site should evoke nostalgia. Content was planned accordingly.
