The Great Leap Forward

The Chairman
I think that we have come to a historic moment in the history of the Painter's Chronicle. Yes, I say this all the time, however every time I say it, something historic is going on. What it is this time, is that the PC website has hit (as you can see at the bottom of the page) one thousand views. And, more to the point, they are not just us, the Board.

What this shows is that in the short time that this website has been up and running, it has become somewhat a regular feature among our subscripients. People are viewing in, and people are commenting, for example on the post about the Isreali-Hamas ceasefire, someone, quite intelligently, posted "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!". So, not only are people viewing this, but the people who are viewing this are of the highest intelligence and awareness. No seriously, it's all good.

What else is important about what has been done, is we have removed the Google Search from the bottom of this page. Not only was it unsightly and vulgar, but it drew connotations that we, the PC, somehow support the enormous electronic juggernaut that is Google. Google, the search engine which complies with Chinese censorship, and Google the corporation who maps our internet use. Yet while they do this, they also host the PC website. It's a difficult line to draw.
