It would be good to see some more discussion on the blog, so if you have any questions or comments, please don’t be shy! (There was a problem with blocking some email addresses, but that has now been fixed.)
We’ll continue to update the blog with the latest articles weekly. Look out for twitter updates here, and quarterly emails summarizing the top 5 blogs from the last few months.
If you’d like an email every time the blog is updated, just let us know.
