0615:To Liverpool for the day to visit the Sail Training International conference. I’m looking at how we might be able to cover the Tall Ships visit to Belfast in August 2009 and possibly we can cover the race across the north Atlantic live on the web.
The conference was essentially for people active in the organisation but still worth while. Very good presentation by Ocean Youth Trust Ireland.
When in Liverpool got a call to say that the new bbc.co.uk/northernireland homepage was live at last. This page has been in production for a very long time mostly in search of a look and feel and working with the audience to see what they want. Ease of navigation and uncluttered. Once that was decided we spent a great deal of time on the navigation, sub navigation and the functionality. The user shouldn’t have to understand how it works, just that it does. I’m looking forward to the feedback.
