Subject: Can I pick your brains?
I don't know if you have come across Computerworld UK since its launch at
the end of February, but if possible I would like to pick your brains about
our coverage of Linux and open source.
Since our launch we have found that articles on open source and Linux have
been amongst the most read on the site and as a result we are going to
launch an "open source zone" on the website.
I have been looking around the UK IT publishing space and it seems there is
little that directly addresses the news requirements of IT professionals in
businesses who are working with and enthusiastic about open source.
There are, of course, many excellent developer sites and community sites and
some good more general enterprise Linux sites - usually US based. IDG, our
publisher, has a Linuxworld site in the US, but we think there is room for
and a useful role for a more UK focused site.
If possible I would like your thoughts on how it should develop. I would be
keen to get your feedback on topics you would like us to cover, resources
you would like us to aggregate and on any bloggers you rate that we might
get onto our open source zone.
I also wonder if you would like us to add your user group to our community
centre portion of the site? It is very much work in progress, but hopefully
it will develop into a useful resource for IT professionals
