DeveloperWorks is in the process of migrating their external weblogs over to a Roller 2.x based platform. My blog was one of the first to be converted. There are several cool new features. First... Atom feeds! If you're currently reading this blog via the RSS feed, I would encourage you to switch over to the Atom feed. New subscribers should automatically pick up the Atom feed from this point forward. Second... tagging! I can now assign arbitrary tags to each post. No more static, stale categories. Third, file uploads and podcasting support. If I ever decide to start podcasting, or if I want to share a screencast or whatever, it's easy as a few clicks. Four... smileys ;-) .... This will be fun. Roller rocks.

This weekend marks the end of the IBM internal blogging pilot that has been running for the past two years. The service is being replaced with "BlogCentral version 2", a Roller 2.x based infrastructure that will offer greater functionality, support for podcasting, group blogs, tagging, and lots of other goodies... including, Atom feeds! All of the content from the pilot system is being rolled over to the new system. Cool stuff.
p.s. the near future may see some changes to my developerWorks blog as well. stay tuned![Read More]
