A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME SMELLS JUST AS SWEET

Sam Bowman of the Adam Smith Institute posted (3 July) on the new look ASI website  imaginatively called “Blog”.
I meant to announce this last week, shortly after my post complaining about the unanounced change of name from the ‘Pin Factory’ Blog to the highly evocative, new title of "Blog”.
Apparently, these changes come with a move to WordPress from Drupal (?) which means that ASI “can manage the site at the back end more cheaply and easily than ever before, and if/when we want to redesign the site in the future it should be relatively simple”. 
This is I suggest an in-house ASI move in the best interests of contributing to “endogenous growth”.  It also means the ASI Blog “site is now fully responsive to mobile and table screen sizes, so reading on your phone should be a very pleasant experience from now on.”
Moreover, “as is often the case, the balance is between style and function, and it will take a while to get everything working properly.”
As is usual in new systems, “also using tags for posts” should “make it easier to find what you want from our archives”. 
Well, we shall see how it goes.  As long as the great quality of ASI’s posts continues, I am very happy to put up with any initial snags.
