Pass It Along is a stand-alone Web application built internally at IBM that combines various Web 2.0 features to facilitate learning and sharing among participants. The application has been available on alphaWorks, IBM's premier site for emerging technologies, since June, and now we at developerWorks want to introduce it to you. This article explains the high-level concepts of Pass It Along as a segue into the application itself, where you'll find step-by-step tutorials on how to use Pass It Along to learn from others and share your expertise. So think about what you know—and what you'd like to know—and explore how Pass It Along can help you with both. (You might just earn some money along the way—virtually, that is!) And don't forget to tell us what you think. Your feedback is valuable to us as we roll out new, interactive features on developerWorks now and in 2009.
