Welcome to Collabowrite!

This is Collabowrite's new website, powered by the Joomla! content management system. Our design is CSS, tableless, and standards-compliant (even if Joomla! itself is not quite there yet) - the kind of spare, and hopefully elegant, design we advocate for our clients. Michelle Feldman took the banner pictures in Central Park after the great snowstorm of 2006 - we like the wintry charm of these photos and feel that they convey the sort of zen design principles of A List Apart and CSS Zen Garden to which Collabowrite aspires to adhere. Enjoy!
