Book website & academia rears its ugly ugly head again

Posted on October 12, 2009. Filed under: Education, forensic, life | Tags: |

Never put off till tomorrow what you can leave to next week – seems to have been my mantra as far as the book website ( http://www.digital-forensics.org.uk/ ) is concerned. However, now I have iWeb on the Macbook, progress is being made rapidly. Exercises for chapters 1 and 2 are already up and I’ll probably have something for Chapter 3 done within the next hour. Those who’ve sat through my lectures or conference presentations on the topics may find some of the example familiar, but I’m bringing them up to date with some stuff based on real casework.

iWeb is proving to be a really nice bit of software to work with, not least because the HTML it generates actually passes W3C validation at the first attempt. The automatic build of the navigation menu is a nice touch too. OK, so it’s still producing simple basic websites without much backend structure – but as a tool to get content online in a clean and usable form in a hurry it scores 9/10 in my book (nothing ever gets 1o/10 btw. – well maybe once in a lifetime)

Latest news : It looks like I’ll be retaining my links with academia as I am in the process of discussing a visiting lectureship with another University. It’s an unpaid post, but allows to me use the title when it is beneficial for research/funding and similar projects.
