2014 promises to be a momentous year: the twentieth FIFA World Cup is being hosted in Brazil; the construction of the world’s tallest building in a Chinese interior city that few outside the Middle Kingdom have heard of; and the official withdrawal of the United States and the United Kingdom from Afghanistan.
Here at Mediolana, 2014 should be a year to remember for a number of reasons, and signalling this shift towards general memorableness is a subtle makeover that retains the core features of this blog yet propels it into a new dimension of über-contemporariness.
But does this makeover raise more questions than answers? What is the new font redolent of this most digital of eras? Who are the characters in the header? What is the significance of the flags in the picture? And what could the nature of the substantive response mentioned therein actually be? One thing’s for sure: 2014 is the year when all these teasers and many more have a good chance of being answered?
