Building Community Web Sites

Online Community Network Portals are groups of businesses, customers or employees with common interests that interact via the Internet.Currently, everyone is using Internet/Intranet technologies to integrate portal visits into their online experience. Community Network Portals are one of the most powerful metaphors since the advent of a windowed desktop. From home users to corporate staff, it is rare that interaction with a computer involves a single information resource. Users are required to "surf" numerous sites, Over the past year, we have garnered more attention than any other Internet/Intranet technology service representing the District of Columbia.

DCpages is a Community Service Provider (CSP) that assembles "portals" for both the Internet (World Wide Web) and Intranet (In-house, Non-public, Web sites) that develop and promote site organization, user friendly formatting and access. Some have gone so far to call our community the next generation of desktop computing. Proclaiming what 18th century railroads did to build an infrastructure for the industrial revolution, our use of portal applications will do for global technology.

The Portal Defined
