Around these parts we know the future comes at you fast. Welcome to the new Singularity Hub.
Whether you’re looking at us on a desktop or mobile device, you’ve probably already noticed things look different. We’ve shifted to a more fluid user interface that not only loads faster but is far more robust. Not long ago, Singularity University announced a rebrand, and we’re pleased to align the new Singularity Hub with the newly redesigned su.org.
We’re especially delighted in the flexibility of our new design, but our website isn’t finished! In fact, we don’t want it to be. One might say a website is never really finished. There are always tweaks to make and optimizations to A/B test, and we’re committed to continuing to explore ways to make our site clearer, more navigable, feature-rich, and user-friendly. If you’ve got an opinion about it, tweet us and let us know.
Of course, there are a lot of things we’ve settled on already, beyond the basic looks.
We’ve (er, finally) moved to HTTPS. You get peace of mind while browsing, and we get peace of mind keeping the site more secure.
We’ve also removed comments on our articles. We have always been proud of the thoughtful discourse our articles have attracted and produced in the comments, but moderating comments is especially resource-intensive, and we’re eager to put that time back into our coverage. Further, we recognize that conversation about the topics we cover has, over time, shifted into social spaces. Like the vast majority of our users, we too prefer to hear your take on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram.
But article comments are one of the many web features we continue to be interested in figuring out. We’re not necessarily declaring they’re gone forever.
Over the last few years, visitors to Singularity Hub have been greeted by the same website. But behind the scenes, our team has grown. As technological trends move faster, so too must our team.
We recognized a need to set ourselves up to move more quickly in the digital space. In the span of one website design we went from publishing “Google Self-Driving Cars Are Learning to Navigate the Urban Jungle” to “An Uber Self-Driving Truck Just Took Off With 50,000 Beers.” We embrace change, and we know our community does too. Expect things to continue changing, both on Singularity Hub and in the topics on its pages.
Thank you for your support. We hope you enjoy the new site.
