www.socialscrutiny.org (DoSS) started life as an entry for a website competition - Channel 4's Comedy Circuit - which it went on to win in 2003.
After all the fuss died down, I began to host DoSS myself with regularly updated extra material. DoSS is now about 20 times the size of the original site and growing all the time. There are currently 0 story pages on the DoSS site and many more hidden away in dark recesses.
In July 2004, the site received a major overhaul with new features and sections styled "Britain: What A State", to tie-in with the Boxtree book of the same name - published in October 2005.
In July 2006, the site received a tech/design overhaul which will enable it to offer better accessibility and will streamline new page designs. The majority of the site is now laid out with Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
