Our usual Editor's on holiday this week, flying her kite in Turkey. I'm on holiday next week, but Bel locked me in a dark room and said she'd make me miss my plane unless I stood in and edited The Post this week. So what could I say? My hands were tied. To the radiator.
Speculation, machination and deliberation are still ongoing about the future of h2g2 and what shape it will take. In a recent issue of The Post, we linked to some of Tavaron's T-shirt designs made to promote the site. The woman keeps on going; if, like many, you find Barlesque soporifically corporate-looking, have a look at some of the skins herself and Malabarista have designed for possible future use. Ah yes, customization. Do we really want a hootoo that looks like the blandest site on the BBC rather than one each user can make their own? There are arguments for a 'work-safe' look and feel1, but if we're going to have bland, let's have it because we choose to, not because we have no choice.
Anyway. We hope you enjoy this slightly slimmed-down issue of The Post. The regular Editor will be back for the next issue, by which time I will be in hiding before she finds out the state I've left the place in.
