NPI's Education page goes live

Remember that "network maintenance" I told you we were doing to the NPI core website last December?

Well...we never really finished it. We got started and then, in mid January, realized we had more ambitious goals for the website. While we mapped out a strategy and a plan for reaching those goals, we turned our attention to other projects. So that "network maintenance" project never was completed.

We pulled a lot of pages offline for the network maintenance project, and haven't put them back up - until now. For that, we apologize. We have now figured out where we want to go and how we're going to get there. We're back on track.

There's no good reason to keep those sections offline, and there's no reason why our core website should be filled with dead links. So we've brought most of the pages we took down back online, including the National Defense section, the Technology section, and the Links & Media section.

And today, we're also filling in one of the dead areas - we've put up the Education section. So far, it's basically an expression of our vision and values for the public education system, but we think you'll agree it's better than having nothing there. We'll obviously be expanding this and other sections as time goes on.

You should no longer see "Network maintenance in progress" messages when you click on any of the NPI link buttons to the right.

While I'm on this subject, I might add that the next version of Pacific Northwest Portal - "Seaside", or Version 4.0, is coming along nicely. Development is now proceeding at a very rapid pace. We hope to have it ready for you in April - and we're working as fast as we can. We know, we know - it's been four months since the last update!

Thank you for your patience and support.
