How can I sit idly by?

The first phase of the site is part of a strategy to get much more of
our Advisory role up so that everyone can get at it more easily. We also
have an eye on the Modernisign Government target:-
A new target of all dealings with government being deliverable
electronically by 2008.

However, we need to build skills here at MGC, so we are taking a phased
approach. The really interesting work comes next, adding information
about the advisory role, and then fleshing this out with information
sheets, application forms etc.

I hope that it won't stagnate - I certainly can't wait to get my hands
on my bit of the site in phase 2!
