When DAC began, the internet had barely got off the ground. We even put out a print newsletter with cut and paste meaning exactly that and post meaning lugging boxes of enveloped magazines, weighing them, and sticking on the stamps which, if you remember that far back, had to be licked!
Then, as the information superhighway began taking detours to the end of most people’s roads, albeit slow as a slug up a pipe, the newsletter seemed unresponsive and out-dated. We couldn’t update it and we couldn’t respond in a timely manner to letters. We switched to a website and then, as even that was overtaken by faster moving platforms, to WordPress.
But times have moved things along again: searches are so easy, our lists can’t keep up, and the way people use social media means they expect conversations, not static pages.
So it may be time to move on again – this time to Facebook. I am looking into Pages to see how we can accommodate our best WordPress features and I will come back here to let everyone know. We may also change our email address as Yahoo no longer works well with Outlook. Again, I’ll make that clear here.
This site won’t go for quite a while and then I will put it in ‘dry dock’ to preserve its history. Before that happens, there will be a post with all you need to find us and connect.
Back soon 🙂
