Human Rights Watch

When HRW published their report on orphanages in China in 1996, they were overwhelmed by the response by electronically connected adoptive parents. That's when realized this whole Internet thing was going to be big. As a volunteer, I built the Web site from the ground up and, over the years, produced additional sections of the site.

I joined the staff as Web Campaigner in 2001, and launched a redesign. In 2002, we debuted a basic PHP system to automate our country pages. And, in 2003, we finally move the site to a real content management system, a home-brew mix of mod_perl and MySQL that decentralized and automated much of the routine maintenance of the site.
