Lisa Napolitan, assistant VP, e-commerce initiatives, Hartford Financial Products (New York, a unit of The Hartford), visits the following sites:
howstuffworks.com: As an underwriter turned techy, I am always trying to broaden my technical knowledge. This site offers straightforward explanations on everything from how servers work to how encryption and firewalls work. As the Web site's name suggests, it is also great for learning how just about anything works!
coolhomepages.com: I like visiting this site on occasion to see what's hot and new in the way of homepage design and site functionality. A place for inspiration and one you may want to let your Webmaster in on.
ultimateinsurancelinks.com: A thorough listing of carriers' Web sites. Makes finding the competitor a snap.
webtomorrow.com: A good site for basic Web site strategy ideas and reminders. Links to some good B2B articles. And don't miss the fun, free downloadable tools as well.
gigalaw.com: I find this to be a helpful, neatly arranged site containing pertinent information on the myriad of e-commerce legal issues.
