Help Ecology of Absence Grow

Ecology of Absence has grown a lot since its beginning in August 2003. What started as a photo-heavy website now includes a website with sections based on specific places, writing by myself and other contributors, and this blog. In the early days, there was no blog. Then, when there was a blog, it stood alone and was used less than the website for publishing thoughts, photos and ideas. Then the blog and site were about even. Now the blog is the public center of the project, and will be for the foreseeable future.

The downside is that navigation can be confusing or misleading. The site's place-based directories don't reference any blog entries, which in some cases are lengthier than what appears on the site. (In other cases, a place appears only on the blog.)

What I desire is an integrated website that can be accessed through the blog or the indices in a sensible manner. Most of all, I want to continue to emphasize the links between buildings and places that appear in different parts of EOA. The separation between the parts of EOA is hampering its ability to fulfill its mission.

Hence, I issue a call for assistance. I don't have the website skills to make my vision of the project real. Anyone who does should contact me at michael@eco-absence.org.
