I must say that I am really proud to see Godbit join the Network because I can remember when Nathan came up to me a couple of months ago with the idea for it and I told him to run with it (or something like that ;-). Now it’s one of the best educational resources for web development on the web whether you are involved in the church or not. Nice to see someone follow through with their ideas and watch them succeed.
The purpose of Godbit.com is to help the Church catch up with the rest of the world in adherence to standards given by the World Wide Web Consortium, the governing body of best-practices on the Internet. The majority of Christian web design agencies are using outmoded methods of coding to create websites that the rest of the world would scoff at. Basically, they are stuck in the 1990’s. This is so common in fact, that the term “Christian” when associated with the Internet has become synonymous with “sub-par.” We realize that if anything is going to change, we need to stop simply poking fun at these people, and start educating them.
Welcome Godbit gang (oooooo, the GGs in da house!).
