Changing orbit

Jonathan Amos | 12:45 UK time, Thursday, 12 May 2011

Things are changing. The BBC's Spaceman has been assigned a new ship for his thoughts. So, as of today, this blog is moving to a new home, and taking on a format that you will recognise if you are a regular reader of the BBC News website. The content of the blog won't change, however. You'll still find Spaceman's musings on all things in orbit. But one of the advantages of the change is that it will make it easier for you to follow everything the Spaceman gets up to - online, in video and audio, and soon on Twitter. You can follow me here.

    "soon on Twitter" is not something I will be celebrating!

    Why is the BBC working so hard to deliver its licence fee payers to the advertisers database of Facebook and Twitter?

    What do WE get out of this great leap forward in marketing?

    The links are to a BBC News blog, it looks pretty good to me. I do not see what Twitter has to do with it. Let those who want to be twits, twitter. The rest of us can read current affairs analyses courtesy of the BBC. Among the best of current journalism, IMO

    By easier I take it you mean more difficult. A nice 'downgrade' it seems to provide a nice appearance but with a decrease in features in every way.

    Most important the loss of those little 'Previous' and 'Next' buttons that tie this together as a blog.

    And of course there's the tiny message size limit, and the relative clunkiness of the new interface.

    One thing that would appease me would be the ability to edit your own posts to correct those oh so annoying spelling and grammar errors. When I'm writing live I get word, letter and even occasionally sentence dyslexia, and one ONE word missed out of a single sentence can make the whole thing completely unintelligible to most people.

    Thanks for listening to my 'final whine' [apology that is a joke from another page]
