> I am a web designer for a government-run educational magazine (www.klasse.be). That means I'm employed by the Ministry of Education, which is not strictly a 'non-profit'. Yet we do operate outside of regular market forces and as an organisation have an independent status in which we set most of our own priorities. Our websites do not add to any financial bottom line, but are long-term projects aimed at information and education, they are at their very core user-centred. We have one in-house web designer (me) and one web developer who are responsible for anything we do online. In day-to-day operations we operate a lot like a non-profit. We have very limited and unflexible resources. The fact that we are an in-house web team largely has to do with the difficulty for a small-scale government entity to outsource web design/development and the desire to integrate the web and professional online communications into Klasse's core business.

> Kind regards,
