I will start with (for somebody who spent a lot of his time working with people from HCI) the vaguely embarrassing bit - the site - and then get on to the easy bit - talking about myself.
This site was set up as a temporary home for my personal web site in the Department of Computer Science at the at the University of York when I left and moved to my new job in France. Then, some time later when I discovered I would not be given space on their servers, I realized that this had actually become a permanent feature.
It may be permanent, but it will almost certainly not be up to date. I have fixed most of the obvious things but some things are just not worth the effort. For example, I have managed to keep my list of publications up to date but the teaching pages are all for courses that I no longer teach. I will leave them on the site as I know that other people use them, but I can't see myself spending the time needed to keep them up to date.
I have tried to organize the site in as logical and consistent way as I can, but some of the structures have been inherited from web pages set up for courses that have long since disappeared - in which case I have simply left them the way they were. The newer pages top level pages (the ones with a textured background) should all have a link in the top left hand corner that will take you back to the home page, but below that there may be a variety of different systems of navigation. Most of the teaching pages for example have links to take you forwards and backwards through a module while the pages for the books Knowledge Networks and Creating Learning Environments for Educators mostly rely on you using the back button. Yep, I am afraid it is more of a Dog's Breakfast than the Dog's Bollocks
One last thing, if you are looking for a holiday rental in the south of France, here's somewhere I can recommend: An independent suite in contemporary house with pool
OK, this is the easy bit because the answer is already out there on the web! For start, you can ...
