The people at Alf Interactive, developers of the new and improved www.satchmo.net, official website of the Louis Armstrong House & Archives (LAHA), have taken to heart the Ginsu knife advertising phrase “But wait, there’s more!” Launched on February 11, the refurbished site is more user-friendly, offers more information and is easy to navigate. It features the “Date in the Life of Louis” calendar, photo and video tours of Armstrong’s house and, of course, much, much more.
The site has received 250,000 hits by people from 100 countries, something Michael Cogswell, director of LAHA, seems to think Armstrong would have been very excited about. “Louis loved gadgets. If he were alive today, he would certainly be surfing the Internet.”
