Andrew Johnson, owner and lead developer for ITNewb, a social network of volunteer tech authors, gave me an awesome shout out on the company’s blog. I’ve been a huge supporter of ITNewb since Andrew introduced me to the project. I’ve had the opportunity to collaborate with Andrew on a number of interface strategies and mock-ups to help increase the sites usability and he’s been doing an incredible job.
ITNewb offers a genuine platform for members of the Information Technology field to go beyond simply reading tutorials reviewed by a handful of private editors. Articles are submitted, reviewed and critiqued by members of the network before being submitted to the archives. Critiques are carefully broken down with specific categories and a sophisticated rating system. The site also offers a variety of useful tools for all ITers, such as an Open Source software library and an RFC database. Make sure you check out ITNewb, wish Andrew all the best, and friend me, of couse.
