Stack Exchange, a spin-off of the popular Stack Overflow programming Q&A site has an “Area 51″ staging site, where Dave Houlker recently proposed a new site Q&A for SDL Tridion.
You can move the potential site into a beta phase by committing. Just follow this image link.
Full disclosure: I get credit if you click the nice image. Join via a non-referring link if you prefer.
This is an opportunity to use the same platform as StackOverflow (StackExchange), to give content authors, programmers, consultants, and content management offices (the business) an open community for questions, answers, and best practices.
My colleagues and external peers (see the list) are dying to answer the propsed questions, but can’t until we move this project forward. Login to vote or committ using a StackExchange, Google, Yahoo, or a FaceBook account.
No single platform or software can replace a community; I see this fitting in with the existing ecosystem of blogs, TridionWorld, Twitter, and Linked-In. To see how it’ll work, we’ll have to participate first. Count me in.
Edit: added an easy-to-click image with my referrer id. Want StackExchange Area 51 points? Go for it and share your own.
