re: [Sigia-l] Enterprise IA 95% un-sexy?
Eh. I guess I am in the 5%.
I hate working on consumer driven sites. I love working on the very complex applications that are normally present in intranets and extranets.
The largest publicly facing site I worked on only consisted of around 20 dynamic templates with about 300 various functional modules.
The largest extranet project I worked on consisted of a little under 1000 dynamic templates and over 8000 functional modules, all utilizing 56 different available skins.
That is my kind of chaos.
