DIUS and BERR have merged, and so have their websites.
Well, not quite. But we’ve done the next best thing – rapidly developed an elegant interim homepage which uses the best of today’s agile web technologies to combine BERR and DIUS content into a single portal. At a cost of next to zero.
Steph has written it up here.
This is the first major output from the new/emerging BIS digital media team. Nobody knows yet what that team will look like, how it will work – or who will still have a job when the transition process is complete.
But in the meantime, and for as long as it lasts, Steph and I will be making the most of the opportunity to combine our forces to deliver first class digital engagement.
More on that score soon.
We’ll not be merging our blogs though. Or moving in together. As Steph says:
Thank god, I’d have nowhere to house the chickens.
