In today’s “As if you didn’t have enough to do” category, we announce the relaunching of FloydCounty.Com as a multimedia web site on September 1, 2005.

FloydCounty.Com will be a showcase not only for our photography and video work on the county, but I hope other writers, artists and photographers will contribute as well. We plan expanding coverage of the county’s music scene, photo eassays and news about the community. We plan to produce a regular “web cast” video news show on the site along with other features.

The site will utilize the latest technology to deliver streaming video and multimedia presentations to county residents. We’ve installed a Flash Communications Server to supplement our WindowsMedia and Quicktime streaming servers. With broadband capability available to more and more Floyd County homes, we think the time is right for a rich-media web site that provides enjoyment as well as information.

The push will be on to get everything ready by Sept. 1 but we should make it and we will be posting teasers at FloydCounty.Com as the launch date approaches.

If you have ideas, suggestions, gripes, etc., please let us know. The fun is about to begin.
