Welcome to our new weblog

6 December 2005

OK, so it's the same blog but with snazzy new design. Thanks to Robey Clark for the design, and for Hamza Khan-Cheema for making it all work.

openDemocracy is proud to present "oDBlogs", our new blogging headquarters. If you click on the "Go to blog" menu above you'll see a list of past and present weblogs, all with handy search engines so you can find what you're looking for.

It's been a year of experimenting, and there have been many successes.

The most recent Women making a difference blog was a month-long conversation between more than 30 of the world's most dynamic women activists about UN Resolution 1325.

Our Iran Scan blog was visited by thousands daily in the run up to the Iranian elections in June, and our contributors were interviewed on television and radio worldwide.

Here, on oD Today you get to eavesdrop on the people who make openDemocracy happen.

Thanks to the many people who have contributed to openDemocracy blogs, and welcome to a fresh new facelift.
