Email Addresses Within Websites


I’ve just been participating in a discussion over at SitePoint on the subject of “Is it safe to write your email in your website?“. I knew I had read somewhere about it being UK law that all service providers must display a certain amount of contact information upon their websites – luckly someone else had also read it and provided a source.

“The email address of the service provider must be given. It is not sufficient to include a ‘contact us’ form without also providing an email address.”



I attended the Microsoft Mix:UK event in London recently (11 – 12 September). During the various sessions, .NET 3.5, Silverlight and the Live APIs were all heavily showcased. The highlights of the two day event were the sessions lead by Scott Guthrie, a manager within Microsoft’s Developer Division, who showed how to build Silverlight applications within .NET, and the lovely free “thank you” gifts from Microsoft: full copies of Windows Vista Ultimate and Expression Studio! Now I just need a more powerful PC to install them on.

Hopefully they will be posting videos of the sessions I missed in the very near future.
