If you can’t beat them

I’ve been tinkering with the site. I threw out my ideals and ideas of a clean and super-simple front page and gone with a more standard set-up. What’s new?
A blog layout. Bosh. All the wordy posts in one big pile, unless you want to browse a section: click on the tiny section-of-choice heading above posts to do that. As always, click on the logo to head home.
Comments. In the print mag, the letters page was called “comms”, short for “communications” so that’s what the comments are titled, short for “comments”. Handy, that.

This is not a website that blows its own trumpet, but if you need another reason to add it to your iPhone’s home screen, now you will get this cute little icon featuring Tom Oldham’s 1999 photo of Nina Persson from the cover of Level issue 01.
