Worth checking out as works on its planned Q1 '09 move to
Usual talk of community and blogs.
Why has it taken this damn long for papers like this to get with it? What is it with them?

Dear reader,

Here's a sneak preview of our new-look homepage, which launches this week. We're aiming for a more sophisticated look and feel that is consistent with the Financial Times brand - a clean and uncluttered executive briefing on the world of global business.

This is the first step in a series of design changes and functional improvements that will be rolled out across the rest of the site as they become available. These include:

  • expanded coverage of important subjects such as macroeconomics,
    energy and technology

  • better integration between market data and news, to give context
    to market movements

  • more opportunities for users to become part of the Financial Times
    community by contributing to our discussion forums and blogs

    Of course, many of the things we're working on we hope you'll hardly notice at all. Planned improvements to the behind-the-scenes nuts and bolts of our publishing system will make the site quicker and easier to use. Please bear with us while we get there.

    For a preview of the new-look homepage and to give your feedback, please
    visit here.

    We hope you approve and we appreciate your views.

"Books about cosmopolitan urbanites discovering the joys of country life are two a penny, but this one is worth a second glance. Walthew's vivid description of the moral stress induced by his job as a high-flying executive with the International Herald Tribune newspaper is worth the cover price alone…. Highly recommended."
The Oxford Times

'I read A Place in My Country with absolute unalloyed delight. A glorious book.'
