Off to Zanzibar to meet the Zanzibarbarians
I'm in need of enlightenment. How would one start with a defined need, say for an online marketplace for suppliers to government and buyers in government to connect with each other, and end up with Zanzibar ?
I know it's Tuesday, so we were about due another .gov.uk website which rides roughshod over the government's own guidelines for producing websites, but this one's a bit more curious and has me puzzled.
Technically it's absolute shite. Table-based layout, no doctype, spacer.gif in abundance, terrible CSS, no headings. It's the brochure site of your favourite local firm of solicitors circa 1999.
So why as
A key part of the Government's procurement strategy is Zanzibar quite so awful? And why is it called Zanzibar? And why is the domain zanzibaronline.gov.uk instead of zanzibar.gov.uk? I think we should be told.
A bonus point to anyone who can name the classic film the title of this post comes from (without cheating!).
