    Being a geek, having designed and developed web sites in the past; all I can say is that I tell my clients "Content is King".  

    Why is it called content? Because the website itself is just a shell, it has to be filled with something.  That something can be words, pictures, music, games, movies, or any combination of those things - what else would you call it? WoPiMuGaMo?  Maybe it could be called "stuff", but "stuff is king" doesn't sound as cool as "Content is King".  I guess we could say "Without stuff it's gonna be rough"?  Your call, but it may take some time to get traction.

    Anyway, what caught my eye is your title.  I happen to live across the street from a big building, that building happens to have art in it, and it also happens to be in New Orleans.  If you want I can run across the street and cross out the word "art" and change it to "content".  We're used to calling it NOMA, we'd have a hard time pronouncing NOMC.  Again, your call, it may take some time to get traction and I may need some money for bail.

      I haven't lived in New Orleans since shortly after Katrina, but I am still deeply afflicted with a passion for the place, and still hang out on all the New Orleans media sites like NOLA.com (ugh), the Gambit, and WWL-TV. I still am a WhoDat through and through, and I LOVE NOMA.

      •  Man, nola.com has to be the worst web site... (0+ / 0-)

        ... on the intertoobz.  Give a thought to coming down for Fest, it's just a few weeks away!  Looks like a GREAT line up!  And you can change the freaking signs at NOMA yourself, I promise I'll bail you out.  

        Who dat say dey gonna bail you out?  Who dat? Who dat?

        •  I don't want to change the name of NOMA (0+ / 0-)

          that was kind of the point.

          I would love to come to New Orleans for Jazz Fest, but I won't be able to because of my financial situation.

          I am a native New Orleanian, and would want to stay away from most of the big tourists times. It's impossible to get a cab during Jazz Fest.

          But man do I want a frickin's po-boy! Nobody makes French bread properly outside New Orleans.

            I lived in the northeast for 15 years.  French Bread, coffee, and crawfish suck everywhere but here.  My first time in a "Sub Store (submarine sandwiches)" I ordered a hot roast beef dressed on french. No one knew WTF I was asking for.  How to become homesick in one sentence.
