Link Love where Link Love is due

In conjunction with the release of my book, the man whose support and help in no small regard put me on the track that eventually lead to the book deal with Sams, Paul LaBerge gave me a fair mention on his much read Canadian Developer Connection blog:

The second story I’d like to share with you is from Pink and Yellow Media, a design agency based out of Vancouver. This agency provides a number of design services for their customers, including the creation of dynamic e-commerce sites and skinning of blogs. Morten Rand-Hendriksen, co-CEO of the company, was introduced to Microsoft’s Expression Web product at the launch of the first version and decided to give it a try. The result was, a website for a customer that built the game called Zufall. With the exception of the photographs used on the site (which he used Adobe Photoshop to edit), the entire site was built using Expression Web and Expression Design. Morten has documented his entire journey on his blog (starting with the very first post!), including the good and the ugly with the first version of the tool. Since then, he has used Expression Web and Expression Design to create a number of other sites for his customers, including Nature’s Carpet (after the Flash intro page), a web store for all-natural carpeting and flooring, and several custom designs for blogs (mainly using WordPress as the back end engine). The truly interesting thing about this was Morten’s work in documenting his experience with the Expression tools online got him noticed by the Expression product team in Redmond who have asked him to write a book on Expression Web as a result. The book, Teach Yourself Microsoft Expression Web 2 in 24 Hours, will be published soon.

In return, here’s a link back to you Paul! And I’ll make sure you get a copy!
