I remember a time, as a child, when I first had a computer at my disposal in the house. I was 7 or 8 years old, and doing history homework that involved finding information online. While using a very early — painfully early — version of Internet Explorer, I landed upon a site with a glowing, flashing, obnoxiously yellow banner that proclaimed that I'd won one million dollars. I was absolutely floored; I hadn't even had to do anything for it!Read More
Have you ever had the experience of spending a painfully long amount of time waiting for what should just be a simple web page to load?

Even if you’ve never been involved in managing a traditional website redesign project, you can probably imagine how it works. It might start with the slow, creeping suspicion that your website may not have had a substantial facelift since before Seinfeld ended, or at least before ‘iPhone’ became a household term.
