making judgments, we must first define what a Web Connoisseur is. A Web
Connoisseur is part Internet Strategist, Online Marketing Expert, Webmaster, Web

How many Web Connoisseurs exist?
There can be only
one (think Highlander). Okay... my ego isn't really bigger than the
of Texas, but I like to think that I am a rare breed.
Enough with the

would say I live in Washington, but I've learned from my travels that people
think the Washington only exists on the east coast,
but everyone knows where Seattle is).
