Palaver.se is a non-profit site made for the simple reason that it's fun to maintain a web site.
Based on PHP and MySQL, it's also an exercise in content management for my own amusement and enlightenment. To some visitors, the machinery behind it all might be more interesting than the actual content. Maybe I'll put up some PHP tips here in the future...
Contact me I'm contactable at the following address, should you be overwhelmed with an urge to inform me of this site's greatness (or lack of greatness).
What's in a name? The word "palaver" has various meanings, but always pertaining to communication. Personally I associate it mainly to Stephen King's Dark Tower books, where a talking session is often referred to in this manner. A camp-fire meeting for discussions regarding some vital or merely interesting topic, is the image conjured up in my mind.
But these definitions also have their charm and appropriateness though, for a web site such as mine.
1) have a lengthy discussion, usually between people of different backgrounds
2) idle chatter
3) loud and confused and empty talk; "mere rhetoric"
