What your event Web site shouldn't do

There is a terrific, tongue-in-cheek post on Silicon Cloud called 12 Things to Irritate Your Visitors that every meeting/conference/convention planner should heed for their events' Web pages. Among the 12 things are pop-ups and -unders, and the ever-popular obscure plug-ins. If your site is guilty of any of the 12 irritants, call your IT guys, stat! You're losing potential attendees due to bad design, or at the least making it hard for them to work with you and setting a bad precident for the meeting itself.

(Thanks to my Capsules co-blogger, Anne Taylor-Vaisey, for the pointer!)
