Critique an existing web site

(Due Date: Sept 9, 2008, submitted on the wiki between 7:30am and 11am, add your name to the bottom of this page and link to the text of your critique (do not use a file)) Indicate your full name also on the actual critique page.

Description: Write a one-page critique (500 words maximum) of a website related to sustainable energy use from the links below. These are large sites, so explore for a while to gain an overview. Use the Eight Golden Rules (in Chapter 2) to structure for your comments (eight subheadings), but go beyond them if you like.

Be sure to describe positive aspects, and also make suggestions for revisions. Please work carefully to produce a thoughtful well-organized, well-written page that makes constructive suggestions about low-level items (spelling, fonts, colors, layouts, etc.), middle-level aspects (consistency, error handling, writing style, menu design, etc.), and high-level concepts (information architecture, navigation, audience appeal, privacy protection, credibility, etc.)
