Pinsel.com explores the world of brushes. Various areas such
as art, cosmetics and DIY are explored. The site also features
a glance at the fascinating history of brushes, their care, bristle
types, purveyor listings and more.
A most detailed site that covers every aspect of the exciting
The German term 'Farbe' is synonymous in English with the words
'color' as well as 'paint'. A complex topic! The already expansive
site aims to offer a sound informational base for both in the
scientific as well as the practical aspect of color and paint.
It is our philosophy, to first pave the way with a solid information
base associated with the generic terms used in the domain, before
the commercial aspect is addressed. The site has long been rated
in the top ten in premier search-engines globally.
Tapezieren.com is designed to serve as a guide for DIY wall paper
hanging. All applicable areas such as the various types of wall
covering, necessary tools, safety issues, paste, wall preparation,
symbols, instructions, practical hints and much more is discussed
at length in easy to understand language.
Austern.com explores the fascinating world of the oysters in
just about every detail imaginable.
Oysters.us is currently under construction. It will ultimately
feature all the information already offered on the German site
Austern.com in English, however, far more detailed. Oysters.us
will grow differently than the other sites listed here. It will
grow "organically" in the sense that, as sections are
completed by its author (John McCabe), they will be accessible
as individual "information modules". Once all the necessary
modules are completed, the navigation of the site will be built
to tie all the parts together as an intuitively pleasing whole.
This approach permits the migration of the content modules
into the internet ahead of the completed site. The author
can "grow" the site as he feels it wants and needs
grow rather than try to envision the entire site layout beforehand.
He can pick and choose the areas of information and explore them
to the extent of his liking, unencumbered by a "preset structure".
Once all the modules are complete, they will be fitted naturally,
page by page, to both retain their individuality as modules, as
well as to complement the whole. For example: A module discussing
the oysters of France will tie into several other areas of the
site without sacrificing its individuality. An oyster lover just
interested in France can stay in "everything about France"
if he or she so chooses, while an oyster lover interested in
oyster history in general will also be able to view some of the
pages pertaining to France's oyster history - without leaving
the history module and moving into France.
Estimated time of completion: Fall 2006.
