We've had quite a bit of discussion about getting the Programmers Stack Exchange blog up and running. There has been a discussion of topic/theme, and there has even been a call for volunteers - to which there was (in my opinion) a fantastic first response.
Several months have gone by since the last forward progress - and I feel that its time to get the ball rolling again and see this thing happen. We will never get that flywheel spinning until we have actual work being done.
I believe its time to go forward and start publishing content.
- We've had ample discussion on the direction, tone, and topic of the blog.
- There are a significant number of volunteers for both writing and proofreading/editing.
Here's what I believe are the next steps forward.
- Let's go to the powers that be and get the actual blog system up and running. This will let us start writing and a team of editors can start proofreading and getting content into the "publication pipeline".
- Decide on a small team of editors who will proofread and approve content for publication.
