Not quite sure what’s going on here, but it looks as though is being rebranded as Edge’s site. The following popped up in our newsreaders this morning:

What is Happening Here?

from Next Generation by Colin Campbell

Until last week, this site was called Next-Gen; now it’s called Edge. This is the story of how and why it happened.

I’ve worked on Next Generation, on and off, for 13 years, a far longer span of time than anyone else. So it feels weird that I was the one who brought it to an end. It all began with a phone call I made to an old friend, about ten weeks ago.

The link to the piece, however, brings up a requirement for a username and password, and Next-Gen‘s still very much live.

Looks as though a cat may be out of a bag. We’ll ask Future this morning.
