Description:

Launched on June 14 and hosted by PBS Online, this new Web Lab project aims to offer an irreverent but balanced guide to important political and public issues. A review of the first issue, a "prototype" which focuses on crime, reveals quite a bit of engaging content (although most of the more useful and authoritative material is not original to the site), links, and other resources presented in a somewhat flashy and pretentious, but very clean, format. For instance, pieces on crime range from a humorous but fairly thorough overview ("all you need to know in 10 minutes or twelve hours") to crime policy "nutshells" to an article on crime and the arts to an excellent piece on the misuse of statistics. This issue also includes a section on Body Politix, navigated via clickable human figures, that contains mini-essays and related links.
