Goodbye spacesyntax.org hello spacesyntax.net

After a decade of earnest, if occasionally erratic, service the spacesytax.org website has been retired. Designed to serve the community of space syntax researchers, .org created the first place online that brought together the various strands of space syntax academic activity: publications, software development and international symposia. Built pre- Facebook, Twitter and YouTube .org was once fit for purpose but no longer is.

Over the Christmas break .org has been superseded by www.spacesyntax.net. Built on the open source WordPress platform, the new site incorporates social networking and user feedback functionality with, most importantly, plenty of potential for future evolution (plans are already in place to do so).

The replacement of .org with .net is in recognition of the networking ambitions of the new site. In the first instance this means acknowledging the worldwide network of space syntax research, practice and development (the .org site was very much UCL-focused). In the future, this should allow network members to use the site for presenting their individual work and communicating between each other.
