After nearly two years, this is going to be the last post on this blog.

But don't worry. Although Press Red is closing, we will still be blogging. Along with our colleagues over at Journalism Labs and the Web Developer blog we're going to be moving over to join the BBC Internet Blog.

For us, this move makes a lot of sense as there has been an overlap between Press Red and the Internet Blog for some time, especially in areas like BBC iPlayer. Posting over there will allow us to have a single home for our content and means you get to see more of the BBC Blogs that connects to the work we do.

It will also free us from some of the overheads associated with running a standalone blog, and allow us to concentrate on writing more posts and we'll be working closely with Paul Murphy, editor of the Internet Blog, to do that.

Once we're over there, you can find all our posts in the red button category. If you read Press Red by one of our XML feeds, you may wish to add the feeds for the Internet Blog into your news reader - they're available in RSS and Atom format. Our regular, fortnightly What's On posts will also continue and you can still follow us on Twitter.

The Press Red Blog itself will be closing for comments on Tuesday 1 June however the blog archive will remain online at the same location.

On behalf of all the contributors to Press Red and its predecessor, BBCi Labs, thank you for reading and commenting over the last two years and we hope to see you over on the BBC Internet Blog soon!
