New content from our latest issue, set to hit newsstands and mailboxes momentarily, is now up on the website! Check out the advice column on sexual harassment, which includes a page of additional resources that we couldn’t get into the print edition. We’ve also got this month’s mixtape courtesy of Controller.Controller’s Nirmala Basnayake, who not only sent us a pretty CD of her selections but also a set of liner notes. And of course there’s the monthly letter from the editors—this month, the eds look back at a glorious two-year reign.

AskMetafilter is the sister site to the massively popular community weblog Metafilter. It’s an advice site that covers a wide spectrum of topics, from “what laptop should I buy?” to “how do I come across as less condescending in e-mails?” to “are shifts in your political outlook inevitable as you get older?” Even if the question never gets answered satisfactorily, you can usually count on an engaging, intelligent conversation.
So, AskMetafilter, how do you explain feminism to your sister? A thread that reveals much about the state of feminism today.

Well, after kicking up a lot of dust, tearing down some walls and rearranging the furniture, the new Shameless website is up! You’ll notice a lot of changes around here, which we hope will make the site easier to use and more interesting to read. For example, our old editors’ blog is now on the front page, so it’ll be easier than ever to keep up to date on the latest Shameless news—and all the news, links and commentary we think you’ll find intriguing. We want the blog to be an interactive thing, so please jump in on the conversation and post your comments on anything that strikes your fancy.
If you discover anything that’s broken, or if you’d just like to leave a comment about the site, let me know at email@example.com or leave a comment on this post. Enjoy the new site!
