Last Wednesday, Allan Rankin dropped over to deliver some materials for his new website. Given that we first discussed getting Allan a website about 4 years ago, this officially represents the longest concept-to-delivery lag in my professional career. It was worth it, though.
Thinking I should strike while iron was hot, I worked feverishly through to night on Wednesday to spring together AllanRankin.com. I put a note on this website to let people know that something was coming.
I forgot, of course, that nothing gets by eagle-eyed culture-journo Matthew Rainnie, and this resulted in a phone call to Allan from Matthew on Thursday morning to the effect of “hey, you’ve got a new website.”
Allan was surprised.
A week later, I’m happy to announce that AllanRankin.com, which will continue to be a work in progress, is nonetheless ready viewing by the public at large. Enjoy.
