Ok, so maybe “the aftermath” is a bit dramatic. Currently sitting here the day after with very little to report issue-wise. The interesting thing to me when I think about it is with a flick of a switch early this morning, we just altered 300,000+ product pages. That number is impressive and scary all at the same time.
We have had our typical post-launch pain with a flurry of emails discussing performance and JS issues. I have come to expect this, especially if you consider how our site is pieced together with third-party content hacks, questionable iFrame solutions and numerous externally-referenced JS and CSS files. It’s a mess I’m hoping to tackle in our next release, which will be MAJOR.
3:00 am — where are you this morning? The war room, once filled with chatter among the three of us, has been silenced. “C” looked at me and asked, “Jay, are you getting tired?”, with a follow up, “you look tired.” I have slowed down considerably. I have filled the time continuing my work on push the hProduct microformat forward, as you can see on the hproduct brainstorming and hproduct proposal pages out on microformats.org.
