Back in 2005, I coerced my nephew Keegan (with the help of a little cash) to build a custom website for me. Keegan was just starting to flash his monster design chops and I knew if I was ever going to be able to afford him it would have to be right then while he was still in high school. He build a great website for me and has since gone on to become an internet rock star. He currently works in California for Facebook.
Things become obsolete pretty fast when it comes to the internet and sadly that is what has become of the DJ-ART website Keegan built. Since it is a Flash based website, it will not work on any Apple mobile devices, (some sort of Apple – Adobe feud) and since so many people access the web now from mobile devices, DJ-ART for all practical purposes has become an abandoned island floating on a vast internet ocean.
One of the other changes since 2005 is the popularity of blogs. I personally always look to see if an artist I’m interested in has a blog. If they do, that’s where I’m going. Why? Because there is at least some slight possibility that I’ll get to see new content popping up there occasionally. You hardly ever see anything new appearing on an artist’s main “portfolio” website. My experience has been that I always get more internet traffic on my blog than I do on my main “portfolio” website.
For those reasons among others I am going to let the website Keegan built for me expire at the end of this month. At this point in time, I’m going to continue to flesh this site out with content and carry on my web presence from this location.
It was a good ride, DJ-ART.COM. Thanks for the memories.
