Contributing to the Blog
The blog is moving forward. The wheels are moving higher up to get us a Wordpress instance created for a dedicated blog here are Programmers.StackExchange. I'm excited about the prospects and what this can do for our community at large.
A couple of things to note.
- There is now a chat room for discussions regarding the P.SE blog. There has already been a healthy discussion and if you're interested I would suggest that you peruse the transcripts.
- I have been anointed the community "point of contact" for the blog. All this means is that I'll be putting in some dedicated hours to organizing and communicating with people about getting the blog published.
Some time ago, I posted a call for volunteers for the blog - and we received a great response from potential writers and proofreaders. However, it has been some time since those "commitments" were made and situations may have changed. If you're still interested - or have become interested - please refer to that original post and post a comment to the affirmative if you are still willing to participate.
Here's where we're at.
It was recommended that we find time for everyone who is interested to sit down and have a discussion about the direction of the blog. We've already had several discussions about this here on Meta but I agree that it probably is a good idea to schedule a chat room session where we can have a meeting and intimately discuss the details of this new project - i.e. definite plans for articles (aka blog posts), proofreading, and publication.
I propose that we hold this meeting Friday, February 3rd at 4 PM GMT (that's 11 AM for United States East Coast) in the new Programmers Blog chat room.
If you are intending to be a participant in this project, please give me feedback on whether this date and time works for you.
