2nd Generation of the CBT-I International Directory 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) is a short term intervention where up to 70% of subjects exhibit a treatment response and nearly 40% recover good sleep. In addition, there is emerging evidence that CBT-I also produces significant clinical gains with respect to comorbid conditions. The International CBT-I Directory includes more than 500 clinicians around the world that provide CBT-I treatments to their patients. Version one of the directory was online for six years. 

The CBT-I International Directory was designed and published for the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.

Picked up this book at Barnes & Noble the other day and breezed through it.  I found some of the psychological aspects of the book most interesting. Specifically "The Rat Brain: Why email is so addictive" chapter provided me some great insights for when I design and craft email messages for my clients.  Some of the book I found to be more focused on email newbies and people that find themselves at the mercy of a daily onslaught of emails.

I've been a fan of Seth Godin since Purple Cow. Seth has a wonderful ability to identify the shifts occurring in our economy and lifestyles before they happen and organize strategies to make the best of the changes.  The primary focus of this book is employees looking to secure their place in a digital world, versus entrepreneurs, but the strategies do cover multiple business perspectives.

Clark County Youth Shelter & Family Services Inc Website Project

The Clark County Youth Shelter was a wonderful project to build a mobile-friendly website.  Their prior website was rather haphazard and wasn't responsive to mobile devices.

The new website created by Sweet Brier Media improved the overall organization of content, improved the clarity of the mission and incorporated fresh graphics. One of the challenges with the Youth Shelter website was that due to privacy concerns the Shelter had limited photos available to use. Most businesses and organizations have some images available to use on their website. The preferred colors and fonts were incorporated into the website along with Calls to Action identifing various ways to support the mission of the Clark County Youth Sheter.

This website was designed and built for a CyberTek client.

Dan Neel Selected to be a DMOZ Editor

After several attempts over the years, I was recently accepted to this volunteer position!

What is the DMOZ Project?

The DMOZ Project is the largest human edited directory in the world. Volunteers applicants are screened and evaluated and then trained to ensure the online directory is maintained and operated by specific guidelines and kept up to date. The DMOZ has multiple benefits for websites, none more important than being able to tell search engines that your website is listed on the most successful Internet directory. 

How did I become a DMOZ Editor?

Over the years I submitted my entry to the DMOZ on several occasions but would never hear back. It was a bit challenging and I would learn a little bit more about the project each time I would go through the application process.  I recently received my approval letter and I'm actively managing a category on the DMOZ.

Why did I become a DMOZ Editor

Over the years I grew tired of seeing obsolete information showing for the categories related to my community. I just decided I wanted to help with this project and ensure quality websites are included for my community and obsolete listings with absent URL's are removed.
