December 31, 2008

GeekPAK has been under constant development and refinement since 2001. Here are some of the features and items added to the codebase in 2008.

Example: The term Social Networking is used here to supplement the site's navigational structure and display all resources about social networking.

Example: Terms can also be used for filtering and enhanced searching. Here a list of 431 items is reduced to a list of 8 items by the Blind / Low Vision filter.
