What's all that stuff on the left sidebar?

For those of you who are new to weblogs (or, "blogs), here's a small bit of introduction.

Blogs represent a new type of web publishing venue. The interface is simple, the cost is minimal (free in this case), and the publishing is instantaneous! What's not to like?

Check the blogroll for links to other blogs that I thought might be of interest to our members.

One great thing about weblogs is that you can subscribe to them via an aggregator. The aggregator monitors "webfeeds" (also called RSS) so that you don't have to keep remembering to go back to the blog to see if anything's new. And if you use a web-based aggregator, such as Bloglines, you can even share your list of webfeeds. That's what we did over on the left.

Here's a link to a great introduction on weblogs and webfeeds.

If you have an aggregator, you can even subscribe to this weblog, using the little orange XML icon.

Welcome to the CT ISPI blog! We're planning a lot of new initiatives in the upcoming 2004-2005 year, and this is one of them. I see this blog as serving as a place:
  • to post chapter or ISPI news,
  • to post announcements from members,
  • to post links and other resources we think would be of interest to our members.

We'll leave the comments function turned on (unless we get inundated with spam). If you are a CT ISPI chapter member, email me to become a member of this blog. Then you'll have posting privileges, too.

The CTISPI officers reserve the right to edit or delete any comments or posts for appropriateness to this forum. But if we do, we'll do our best to contact any affected members, first.

Here's to a great 2004-2005 year for CT ISPI!
