Sustainable Penang: Toward a New Mobility Agenda, The Phase Two Watching Brief is just getting underway, so we are taking this opportunity to carry out a major overhaul of the website and related social media sites, as you will now see in these pages. The site is already fast-growing with new postings, comments and graphics coming in steadily. So as you can well imagine it can be pretty easy to get lost in such a mass. Fortunately we have taken advantage of a quite handy nest of Search functions which you will find explained here
The new site also makes, we believe, a more inviting read, closer to a book than most websites. Have a look, and in particular check out the sliding menu to your left (click the + sign) which introduces the key elements of the site and the possibility of pretty serviceable translations in a compact space .
You also may wish to check it out on your tablet or smartphone, for which the site has been optimized. Today when an increasing number of us tend to spend more time reading selected items on a tablet or smartphone as opposed to trying to read an entire piece on our computer in the office, this is a useful advance.
We would like to invite you to have a look and tell us what you think, and what else we might do to make the site more useful and rich. An email to firstname.lastname@example.org, a phone call to +336 5088 0787, or a Skype call to newmobility (one word) would do the trick.
Thank you for eventually sharing your thoughts with us.
