The Netscape team is very proud to roll out a new feature: NewsQuake
. This is where our staff will blog about current events (in the real world and the virtual one), politics, culture, and some of the zanier stories unearthed by our membership. New posts will appear every single day--often more than once a day--and we encourage visitors to stop by, sample the smorgasbord, and leap into the discussion threads.
Frequent visitors may recall that there already exists something called the Netscape Blog
. This area of the site has suffered an identity crisis over the past few months. It was originally launched to update the community about the site itself, as well as delivering bulletins about other Netscape products. In January, however, we began to post articles, interviews, and reviews there--and this promiscuous mingling of very different types of content created some major confusion. The Netscape Blog will now revert to its original function, while the staff will blog its collective heart out over at NewsQuake.
Again: we encourage you to stop by NewsQuake. Sample our first salvo of posts--on France's post-electoral hangover, Hillary's sagging profile in the blogosphere, and the pedagogical use of Brokeback Mountain
--and let us know what you think. We're listening!
