Through this research I have conducted we are able to conclude that there are several different points of view on an effective web design. What we learn from this is that there can really never be the perfect website because everyones point of view on perfect is vastly different. What we need to spend are time on is operating effieciency and the over all graphic design. While still being carefull that are website is not overbaring.

I would like to start out by introducing myself to the reader. I am Steven L. Diesman a 26 year old father of two. I was in a terrible car accident in February of last year (2007) which temporarily took the ability to work away from me due to injury. During this time I began to realize that I would not ever be able to do the amount or type of work I was doing prior to my accident. I then started looking in to other fields of interest I have had since I was a small child. One such interest was the ever expanding computer industry. I had to decide what specific field as the computer industry is rather large and only getting larger by the year. There were several fields that I could possibly enter into and have success at building a career. One such field was web development or internet design. Although I had to start somewhere to get to the point in my life where I could do what I wanted for my particular career choice. I started out in the Associates program for Information technology at Axia College of the University of Phoenix. This was a logical step for me to take in my life at that point in time.
