New website goes live

4 June 2008

Over the past months, the Foundation's website has been redesigned and redeveloped to respond to the increasing volume of site traffic and provide improved navigation and usability as the site content continues to grow.

The site relaunched on 4 June.

New features include:

  1. discussion forum for users to post topics of interest, participate in the discussion, or simply respond by poll.
  2. Podcasts of lectures to download (video and audio)
  3. New Press Office section with news and articles - watch this space for Joshua Rozenberg's article in the Daily Telegraph on our conference with the Aspen Institute on 7-9 July!

 

Other improvements and changes are described on the screenshots below:
