Web design and business plans

A colleague asked me to drop in on a college course he teaches to help watch and critique student business plans last night.  I have to say that it was nice to see some good work and good thinking in these plans, at times a fair bit more thinking than we unfortunately find in existing businesses.  I was impressed with the detail of some of their operational plans and with the thought they had given to some of the unique operational flows that their businesses would require.  We’re referring some of them to an organization one of our client/partners suggested today in a meeting.  Not that I or anyone here needs anymore things to do, but it might be nice to touch bases with each of the major programs in town that formally help students and residents develop business plans and employ some social media to create a network and collaboration site for start-ups, if it hasn’t already been done.

On another matter, we’ve been talking with a number of people for potential web developers for a project we have going that will be developing a web site to promote and harness more local civic engagement in general, and understanding of our government in particular.  It’s a modest project, but an extremely worthy one based on a very simple but interesting idea.  We’ll be making choices in the next couple of days, so there’s still time for people to suggest some local web developers who would be interested in participating.

Also, based on some direct feedback, we added a couple of designs last night to our VFS Apparel line: some long-sleeve shirts and women’s tanks.  If you have any suggestions or request, just let us know and we’ll be happy to work on putting them together.

Think about tomorrow.
