Is your social media strategy backwards? Are you tweeting about what you've posted on Facebook? Posting on Facebook about what you're doing on Twitter or your Wordpress.com blog? Social media tools like this are beautiful tools, but they are just tools. Don't let them be the focus. They are to direct traffic, not to be the target of your traffic. Post your content on your own site, and use your social media tools to bring the people to you.

I recently had the pleasure of finishing another ITD design project, I was able to work with a number of great people at ITD, as well as the NDHP and Department of Emergency Services to update the Amber Alert website. Like the recent NDHP site, this was both a redesign and a Drupal conversion project.  Based strongly on the NDHP's design, the Amber Alert site is built using Zen.
