No matter how much forethought went into planning this collection, from the beginning, it was obvious that there would be a wealth of information that simply would not fit into the planned volumes and chapter. Hence, an “Everything Else” volume was planned. Furthermore, the volume will be open ended and include new topics as they appear or are discovered.
The listing below shows the initial categories along with a brief description and their status. Most of the planned contents will not be included for some time. Instead, the backlog of planned articles (as listed) will take priority. As the contents are updated, the issue date of this article will be updated so that users can quickly determine what has been added by selecting the “WHAT’S NEW” tab on the footer of the site’s home page.
Topics and Chapters included or planned in this Volume
Site Statistics [Open]
Statistics regarding the number of articles, their size, organization, and status. As well as usage sites for the site itself.
Article Listings [Open]
A list of all the articles both by Volume/Chapter and alphabetically by Article Title. The listings might be in the form of a download link to an Excel™ file.
What’s Coming [Open]
This section will include lists of the planned future articles, tools, and presentations that will be added to the appropriate volumes when completed.
Lessons Learned [Open]
This section will consist of “war stories” and antidotes from myself and related to me by others that may be helpful to others.
Other Resources [Open}
There are thousands of books, articles, web sites, and other sources of material regarding starting or running a company. This section will contain a list or links to those sources that the author has discovered or have been recommended by others. Of course, the listing will be only a fraction of the material that is available.
Articles from Others [Open]
Similar to the “Other Resources” section, this section will include useful information created by others. In most cases, the material will have been created for this site to supplement the content in the main body of the other volumes. It is anticipated that others may have views that differ from the main body articles. This section will provide an opportunity to express those views. In some cases, articles included in this section will be referenced in the applicable main body articles.
Comments from Others [Open]
Over time, a blog or forum may be added to the site. Until then (if ever), this section will include comments about the site and specific articles submitted by others. Of course, they will be filtered by the Site Administrator!
Yes, “whatever” doesn’t fit into one of the Everything Else categories will be included here.
