The Communications site publishes two types of blogs. The [email protected] expert blog resides on-site, and the Blogroll of syndicated blogs reside off-site. Both blogs rely on a continually evolving community of bloggers. If you would like to recommend a blogger or volunteer yourself for [email protected], please contact us at [email protected].
Our bloggers discuss relevant computing topics and encourage comments about their posts.
