Mistress of My Domain


Thoughts on using all facets of the Internet effectively, growing your web site, doing business from Canada, and being a businesswoman.

Back in 1996, full of vim and vigor, Lisa Voisin and I decided to start the Canadian Women's Internet Association. We soon had a dedicated core of collaborators and did good things™, but this was a volunteer effort and things gradually fell apart. This year, reluctantly, I retired the herplace.org domain where the CWIA's efforts had lived as it had not been maintained for many years and I could not foresee a time when I would be able to once again take up the cause with the amount of focus and dedication it would require.

There is, however, one thing that the CWIA created that is of lasting value and importance and that is the Candlelight Vigil Across the Internet. As December 6th approaches, I wanted to make sure that these pages were publicly available and not just mouldering on my hard drive.

Remember. Reflect. Teach your sons and daughters well. Make the world a better place.
