We're taking a break for a couple of months now that our original year's funding has ended. We're exploring with the Housing Corporation ways of renewing the impetus of the site, including the involvement of user groups and the possibility of linking to other projects.

Meanwhile explore our year's worth of articles, submissions and ideas along the toolbar at the top. Or send us your own suggestions for development of the site.
