The Windsor Essex Development Commission's new website -

The new site represents a much needed update for the Development Commission. The site is crisp, clean and easy to navigate.

The only fault I can find is having no syndication for the site. Syndication works for you 24hrs a day, seven days a week and doesn't require salary, cost of living increases or pension benefits. It never ceases to amaze me how governments and their related agencies don't realize the value of RSS in delivering/syndicating their message.

Here are two feeds I've created for the WEDC:

WEDC Events


I wanted to create a feed for Press Releases as well, but currently there is not enough content to scrape (one Press Release).

I've created a WEDC Events module on WE Speak and have incorporated the News into the aggregator.

PS. Maybe someone from the Development commission could forward the name of their web developer to the Convention and Visitors Bureau. Please. Soon.

Choose Windsor link fixed.
