I'm a predominantly lurking presence here, and as such, I don't read every
post that comes through. The "portal" that you're talking about, is that
another term for forum?

Hi All,

Joe Frazier has been reminding us of the value of community support in
learning how to use FM8. The mail list meets this need to some extent, as
people can post questions and get answers, and even search the archives.
However, the list has its limitations. I've been mulling over what else we
might use.

There was an attempt last year to set-up a 'portal' dedicated to all NBOS
products, but after some initial enthusiasm usage rapidly fell off. I think
the portal concept was perhaps too ambitious, and in part was competing for
people's attention with the mailing list. Perhaps a different, more tightly
focused effort would work.

I've been playing with using a popular blogging site as a way of posting FM8
techniques. You can see what I've done so far here:

Blogger allows group blogging now, so *if* others wanted to go down this
path, it would be easy to add any/all who were interested as co-authors to
this blog.

Thoughts? Other options? In theory a wiki might be more appropriate, but my
impression is that free blogging tools have more advanced features and
better usability than the free wikis I've been able to locate. Do any of you
want me to add you as an author on this blog so you can play with it?
