The Reality Check Site has implemented many of the different things outlined in a given chapter and you can review them on-line at the site to see how they work. The other aspect of the Reality Check is to provide additional feedback on any bumps in the road that may be encountered along the way when you implement the different techniques in a given chapter.
You can become a Reality Check as well and display the Reality Check logo on your site too. If you're interested, just send a quick note to email@example.com and indicate your site's URL if it's on the Internet. If your site is an Intranet-only implementation, state that in the message.
In addition to the address, provide information on what types of techniques you used from the book at your site. You don't need to go into the gory details, but do let us know what you've implemented. We'll take a look and issue you the logo, complete with the HTML you can use to add the logo to your pages.
In addition, we'll put a link from our site to yours for other people to reference. This will create a network of sites that can be used to review different approaches to the Intranet implementations.
The criteria for becoming a Reality Check site are simple:
You can combine your use of the Reality Check site approach with the WebReference materials, detailed in Appendix B, to gain access to some great technical resources that you can use to ensure your success as the webmaster for your site.
