Hello Dezeen feed readers, you've probably noticed that we've been tinkering with our feed lately. Our main feed is now called Dezeenfeed and we are also testing a new feed service called Dezeenwire, consisting of links to key design-related news and features from the best writers and sites around the world.
We hope you find this useful! Dezeenwire is spliced with our main feed but is currently hidden from regular visitors to Dezeen while we reconfigure the site. However you can view all Dezeenwire stories here. Let us know what you think.
More feed developments coming soon. NB Marcus is finally on Twitter, where you can read what's happening behind the scenes at Dezeen and other useless stuff... http://twitter.com/marcusfairs
