Headlining the kids

By Mike Butcher

Perhaps we shouldn’t be too harsh on the nominated Headliners project, the youth media charity formerly known as Children’s Express (“Making news, changing lives”) which has been giving young people a chance to answer back to the mainstream media’s portrayal of them for the past 12 years. However, there is something just slightly “1999” about the web site, given that many of the young people it gives space to are these days probably past-masters at building MySpace pages and uploading videos to YouTube. Still, at least the site is readable, which is more you can say for the design nightmare that is the average MySpace page.
