The New NEI Web Site

Over the past several months, I'm sure many of you have noticed that posting on the blog has become, well, a little more "bursty" than it had been historically. The reasons for that are pretty simple, as I've been deeply involved in the redesign of NEI's public Web site for a number of months now.

It's been an arduous process at times, but now the we're looking to launch the brand new site at the end of July. While it may be a number of weeks before the site goes live, I'm happy to give our readers a sneak peak of what's coming next. Again, click the image in order to enlarge it:


As you can see, the new site is quite an upgrade over the current one when it comes to design. But the changes didn't end there, as we re-wrote mounds of content, and reorganized hosts of links into a structure that was easier to understand and a whiz to navigate.

As we get closer to the actual launch date, I'll be sharing more details of what's to come next. I hope you'll be pleased with the result.

The new site layout looks great. I look forward to the revised content.

Great news, I'm looking forward to it.

You might be able to use some material (or inspiration) from Cameco's "Uranium 101" section in your "How it works" section.

I'll help you write a "thorium 101" section as well if you want...

You might want to reconsider the banner image. You may or may not be aware those beautiful towers in Houston, TX are the former headquarters of Enron. I believe ChevronTexaco is the main tenant nowadays. Not exactly nuclear....

Hi,

Firstly let me say thank you for running your site on the nuclear indusrty. Its kept me up to date on events and I have been able to convince a number of skeptics that nuclear is the way to go!

I have found an article on http://www.uranium-stocks.net/ about the possible effects of global warming on nuclear power plants, which might be of interest to you and your readers

http://www.uranium-stocks.net/rising-sea-levels-to-endanger-nuclear-future/

Its called Rising Sea Levels To Endanger Nuclear Future? and is well worth a read. I am sure the people at the site will be happy for you to publish it on your site, as there work is published on many other sites.

Best Wishes

Dave

I agree with Ian about the image of the corporate buildings on the website. It might be better to put something more related to nuclear power. But, please, please, don't put an image of cooling towers there. Containment domes, or a fuel assembly, or a picture of a control room, fine.
