Iraq Virtual Science Library looks great!

Congratulations to the web designer of the Iraq Virtual Science Library! IVSL looks great. I was astonished to find the site greatly improved since I last castigated them for bad marketing, registration, and web layout. The site is clean, intuitive, and responsive, at least from my desk in Boston.

Imagine my surprise when I received an email today with updated login information. My first thought was, “What a precisely targeted phishing email. Why would anyone want to phish my IVSL credentials?” Next year: I’ll convince IVSL not to send out username/password combinations by email.

Best wishes to IVSL and to my colleagues at the University of Duhok.
