Fair warning: On Monday morning, Lawfare will look different---very different.
For the last year, we have been rebuilding the site. What began as a small blog of three friends has become an institution that large numbers of people rely on every day. It's an institution with ever-expanding content offerings. It's an institution that, to our surprise and delight, has become an important research tool for people in the field. It's an institution that we are committed to growing further.
It's also an institution that some folks (I still don't know who) don't want you to be able to read---and have sometimes acted maliciously to keep off the web. It's therefore an institution we have a responsibility to protect.
The site we will unveil next week is designed to move Lawfare decisively away from the blog form and into a form more like that of a magazine or newspaper. By moving the site away from the reverse chronological format of a blog and toward the sectional topic-oriented format of a magazine, it should give readers dramatically enhanced ability to navigate the site and find the content---current and historical---important to them.
From an editorial point of view, it gives us here at Lawfare greatly enhanced control over what goes on the front page, where, and how to curate our various different content streams---as well as allowing the integration of a great deal more graphical material than we currently use. It also allows us to launch subsidiary pages, the first of which---on the Middle East---will go live Monday with the new site.
Oh, yeah, and the new site looks really cool too.
