T+D February issue online; changes afoot
The survey is showing that some of you want more links to T+D articles. So I'll make sure to post here each month when the new month's articles are up on the T+D site. I can't link directly from here to the articles because some are members-only/available for purchase and the rest require registration, but I can tell you what's available, and then you can click to the T+D site.
Also, look for a new T+D Website design coming in the next couple of months. It will jive with the new look for T+D that will launch in March. (The Website may not be ready at the beginning of March because of time needed by our pulled-in-a-million-directions Web team to do the work.)
What about this blog, you ask? It could surely use some design touches. Plans are in the works to relaunch this blog with a better design and better integrated technology (ie, comments, RSS feed, etc.). Stay tuned for that as well in upcoming months.
