  • <p>We've had our site up and running for over a year now which means we've had lots of time to work out what works and what doesn't. With the redesign, we've been able to better demonstrate how much is going on in the Enabled by Design community not only here on www.enabledbydesign.org  but all over the web, especially on Twitter and over on our vibrant Facebook fan page.<p/>
<p>So what's new? Well as you can see, we were keen to bring forward as much of the content as possible onto the front page to let you see under the bonnet as some of it was a little hidden away previously. Most importantly, we've brought the blog forward to the front page, giving us the ability to share our most recent and favourite (featured) posts so they hit you as soon as you come to the site. We also now have new 'community' posts updating with the relevant most recent image for loves, hates and product reviews. No biggy, but a nice to have.<p/>

  • <p>Here at Enabled by Design HQ we're celebrating some fantastic news. We've been successful in applying for a Level 2 Better Net award, yippee!<p/>
<p>What does this mean I hear you ask?!? Well, as the logo above says, it's all about using the internet to bring about social change for the better. Something that's right up our street, I'm sure you'll agree.<p/>
<p>To tell you the truth, we've known since late on Friday afternoon, but we thought we'd better keep schtum until the lovely people at UnLtd made an announcement of their own. I can't say it's been easy keeping the news to ourselves, we've been fit to burst with all the excitement!<p/>
<p>We'd just like to say a very big THANK YOU to UnLtd and the Nominet Trust for believing in us and supporting us to carry on and build on what we've achieved so far. And of course, THANK YOU to our community, without YOU there would be no Enabled by Design!!!<p/>
