Such a newsy couple of weeks in the world of technical communication and
content management. New releases, new partnerships and alliances, new ideas
for productivity, new jobs (or new titles at least). We try to keep up with
it all, and even feature a few of the bigger news items for further
perusal. Then just to keep conversation flowing, we throw in a new poll
question to vote on and debate over.

Your thoughts, whether new ideas or upgraded opinions are important to the
conversation and the community. Staying on top of where tech comm, content
strategy, customer experience management converge can be a fulltime job,
and a big part of that is understanding how the tools and the trends affect
the content professionals we work and network with on a regular basis. With
the Intelligent Content Conference a few weeks away, we're looking forward
to getting that feedback in person. But in the meantime, we love hearing
from you, your opinions about the topics we're covering, your ideas about
the topics we should be covering.

Post a comment via the community forums <>,
start or respond to a thread on the email discussion
Or stand up and shout really loud in our direction--we'll find those tin
cans and string somewhere around here and shout back at ya.

Have a great weekend!
