The initial motivation for JamPaw was personal -- I needed a directory to mobile-useful and mobile-usable Web sites that worked on my relatively simple mobile phone. In mid-2006, I started invested limited weekend time, outside of my job as CEO of the World Wide Web Consortium, building a simple directory of sites that I found useful and usable. This was installed at the current JamPaw.com site in April 2007. I add new sites as I discover them and when I have time.

The current site is far, far from what it could be. No content management, no user-configurability, lots of in-active links, etc. However, with more time and talent (I'm no Web programmer), one could improve the site by implementing:

There is still a lot to do. The News category is the most advanced, and the other categories are far behind.

Cheers,
