As youíll recall in February and March we launched a number of very visible changes to the de facto IT Pro portal, Microsoft TechNet: Resources for IT Professionals
. We also soft launched the Beta of the TechNet Wiki but I was under a gag order and not allowed to blog, tweet, or otherwise evangelize the project. The gag order is now off. Tweet tweet.
The Wiki is for real now and the link is right off the top navigation bar of the US TechNet homepage. That link goes to Home - TechNet Wiki
There are a number of things Iíd like you to consider about the Wiki. First, this is a Community platform service. Itís from us to you, and from you to everyone else if you choose to participate in that manner. So this new platform feature is VERY community oriented. Jump in!
Second, we are just getting started. Weíll keep the Beta label on the Wiki area for a little while in order to continue to shake down the software and features, as well as listen to feedback from the community. Your feedback drives the next round of changes.
Third, you donít have to write an entire article or whitepaper to contribute. I fall into that category of fear. Itís unfounded. You can participate in small but powerful ways. The cool thing about the Wiki is that you can publish instantly and contribute a wide variety of media types. Weíre trusting youíll do the right thing.
