Resturant User Reviews

i like the simple colors they use. i like the logo but it doesn’t fit for the site. the site is still in beta. so they don’t have many states where they have reviews but good thing they have Dallas reviews but for the restaurants that are reviewed there seem to be a lot of reviews for still being in beta.


i like how the logo color and page colors tie in together. i like the simple but yet self explained log0
also how you can receive updates

logo is cute but dont really like it that much. i do like the colors though.

i like how its like a social networking site. you can have a journal or reviewed sites, and have a friends like list of other friends o menuism.com

you can view a restaurant and see others reviews on it or you can review your experience at the restaurants you go to.

i like how road food as a different spin on it. its not just resturants in general but road food which is “Great regional meals along highways, in small towns and in city neighborhoods.”

the colors i don’t like that much even though they are like menuism just brighter. while menuism is more light colors. i do like the features you can see the top 10, and apparently make reservations

out of all the sites. i probably spent the most time looking around this one. it shows you a map of the restaurants and it list them. how many reviews, directions, some have pictures, and those that review the restaurant can put the price range, rating and what they thought about the place. you can also say if their review was useful to you. i like the colors, structure and feel of this site

Semantic Markup

August 1, 2008

“Practically speaking, however, semantic markup is markup that is descriptive enough to allow us and the machines we program to recognize it and make decisions about it. In other words, markup means something when we can identify it and do useful things with it. In this way, semantic markup becomes more than merely descriptive. It becomes a brilliant mechanism that allows both humans and machines to “understand” the same information.”

Digital Web Magazine

it this information wasn’t understandable from both humans and machines we would probably totally lost when trying to read it to edit or find out how something was done. which is what i would do sometimes if i wanted to know how something was done in a code.

“One key principle governs the markup on every page of your site:

Your goal is to describe each page to the search engines through the use of hierarchical XHTML tags (<title>, <h1>, <h2>, <h3> etc.) and to present them in a logical, meaningful order.”
