Website Additions for May 12, 2011

Ben Hauck, IGS Webmaster

This week I’ve been finishing off the redesign of the Institute of General Semantics website. If you visited at the beginning of the week when the new site was launched, you saw a few holes in it. Here are some of the holes I’ve filled in recent days.

  • A silent film of “Seminar ’48” has been uploaded to the IGS YouTube account. The video includes many notable general semantics teachers: Alfred Korzybski, Capt. J. A. Saunders, Douglas M. Kelley, M.D., Harry Holtzman, Charlotte Schuchardt, Irving J. Lee, M. Kendig, and Stuart Chase, among others. The video used to be a feature on the homepage of our old website. Click here to view the video.
  • The free web book of Catherine Minteer’s Words and What They Do to You is back online, this time using the original code for the web book. It is primarily available in the Our Offerings section under Books & Web Books. Click here to go right to Words and What They Do to You.
  • Videos from the dedication ceremony of Read House, the home for the Institute of General Semantics from 2005-2009 in Fort Worth, Texas, are back online. You can reach them from the History page of the About Us section. Click here to view the Read House videos.
  • After having a few missing articles when I launched the new website, I believe I’ve finished stocking the Online Library with articles from our journals and the website. Click here to access the Online Library in the General Semantics Learning Center.

There are still a few things in the works for the website but it is around the 99.5% point of readiness. The Media page is still listed as “Coming Soon,” and it will remain that way for a while. In the meantime, I hope the new website excites you. Drop me an email with your reactions or if you find a broken link or typo. Comment on posts in the News blog, and watch our Twitter feed for updates.

    Nice job, Ben. The old website was’nt bad, but the new one is even better.

    Thank you, Ben. You do handsome work. Happy for me to see that the selections for the online library include the James Morriss recognition of Julian Jaynes ( – ETC 1978).

      Sure thing, Phil. I’m glad the site appeals to you! (Or so I infer!)

    Finally, I took time to thoroughly peruse our new web site. Thank you, Ben, for a wonderful (and never-ending!) job.
