It doesn't have to be a *great* website. Any old website will do. A HTML
1.0 site with black text and some blue links. A Basecamp account. A
MySpace page. A livejournal. Anything. Show me that you are an actual
participant in the fabulous new "Internet Age" and not still living in
some alternate universe where the web never happened.
Look, it seems like half of the teenagers in the world have their own
websites these days. The least I think an employer can expect is for a
technology professional to have the skills and the initiative of a
normal untrained teenager.
You know, the more I think about it the more I agree with PeterMe. I am
now drawing the line, too: No website, no IA job.
