"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


way to go, MONUC

Not much annoys me more than website redesigns that make the site less functional than it used to be (Facebook, I'm looking at you.). MONUC just joined the bandwagon of new platforms for their web presence. While the new site is pretty, it's also completely awful. What happened to the press clippings service? The press clippings were the single most useful service provided by anyone in the entire mission; you could look at one page and see the latest global news on the D.R. Congo without all the clutter of Google News. But now the press clippings have been relegated to a scrolling feed along the top of the page, meaning you have to sit there and wait until the story you want to read comes by. Who has that kind of time?

Grrrr. I'm glad my dissertation is done, and feel sorry for those of you who still need to closely monitor this news.
