This month, we retired the online videos platform that was built according a wireframe that I designed.

I reminded myself that the version we retired was better than the one before that, and so we learn and evolve.

It was a crazy fall, writing up a reply to an RFP for our operational contract, and so as part of that, we created a summary of some of the work done on the Online Videos project (with of course the caveat that our Survey 2016 results tell us that there are entirely too may clicks to watch a video).
