We are delighted to bring you this new version of www.context.org. Context Institute has had an internet presence for a long time. We got the context.org domain in 1994, we did our first website in 1996, and we upgraded the site in 2000. The old version of the site served us well for many years, steadily hosting over 20,000 visitors a month, but as we started in late 2011 to plan for Context Institute’s next phase, it was clear that we needed to bring the website fully into the 21st century.
The new site has all of the essential material from the old site — especially all of the 900 articles from In Context. What is new is that the site is now a dynamic content management system (based on WordPress and the Hybrid theme framework) that will allow us to add all kinds of features that the old static-page site couldn’t handle.
We expect to be adding substantial content to the site over the coming months and years as we develop the Foundation Stones project. Please sign up for our email newsletter, CI News, using the form in the upper right column. In addition to updates about new articles on the website, CI News will have behind-the-scenes info and questions well before that material reaches the website.
We invite you to explore this new site. If you are not familiar with our work, the About Us section is a great resource. We would love to get your feedback both on what you like and where you feel there is room for improvement.
