The British Army are trying to conquer Everest. To allow you to follow the three teams on this massive adventure there’s the obligatory website armyoneverest.mod.uk. Who ever has built this knows how to leverage this space. News and updated, blogs, videos, podcasts, RSS ties into Google Earth and a promise of mobile goodies; a good education page focused on teachers and children as well. One of the best sites I’ve seen of this nature.
Technically it seems to be using Microsoft CMS, ASP.NET and Flash 8 all combined to give a really good experience – a good example for some of the agencies I’ve met who are never quite sure what you can do with this lot ;-). Aso the first site I’ve seen with a link to the Freedom of Information Act homepage!
