Woohoo! As you’ve probably noticed, FTB has finally come good with the long-promised site overhaul.
I think the front page makes a lot more sense now, and everything is just a wee bit more stylish.
I am, however, all too aware of the first rule of the Internet, which is that NOTHING MUST EVER CHANGE.
So I will welcome your comments below saying:
“OMG this is the worst thing ever, you’ve made it look all wrong, why is the button to do wotsit over there when it is meant to be over here I like it over here I need it over here and the typeface looks all wrong and when I leave a comment it jumps up and down on my screen you have seriously RUINED this site, no, that’s not right, you have RUINED MY ENTIRE LIFE I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU!!!”
And by tradition, you must continue leaving such comments for precisely 11 days, after which time everything will suddenly seem normal and you’ll forget it wasn’t ever thus.
If you want to be more specific, in all seriousness we realise there are a lot of bugs and quirks and things to be ironed out, we are compiling a full list, so if you notice anything that’s obviously borked do let me know and I’ll pass it on.
If you want a conversation opener that is a bit less meta…. I’m really pleased and grateful to Glen Poole at InsideMAN magazine who has interviewed one of the authors of the recent British Academy report into prison reform which called for radical reform of prison policy, with a specific eye on male gender issues.
At the risk of sounding like I’m blowing my own trumpet, Professor Nicola Lacey of the LSE makes several points which I’ve been banging on about for years. Considering I have often felt like a voice in the wilderness, this has been a bit of an airpunch moment for me. Short report here and full interview here
Anything else interesting on your radar, my friends?
