Here it is: http://www.knoxvilletn.gov
The new site is streamlined and intuitive. Yeah, it’s not the old one, and will take some getting used to – but that’s how 2.0 versions go. They, ideally, build upon the existing material.
The .gov domain feels alot more appropriate than .org websites. Knox County’s domain is still .org, by the way.
The announcement of the new website happened on the 100 block of Gay Street. I wasn’t there, but I’m picturing the mayor in a black turtleneck on a black stage, tearing a page out of Steve Jobs’ handbook. If our threeish-theater Theater District (according to signage) is on one end of Gay Street, can the 100 Block now become the Technology Corridor? Wait. No – that’s the Arts District. Wasted opportunity to establish a Technology Corridor in Knoxville. Guess we’ll have to wait another 10 years for Knoxville.tn.gov 3.0.
