Blogging as Non-Traditional Support Documentation

Andrew Spittle wrote a good summary of my talk here. Here is a recording of the talk:

  1. How’s Budapest? Hope you’re having a great trip.

    Your topic makes a lot of sense to me. My other wordpress blog http://www.cuehaven.com is an attempt to use wordpress like a more traditional web site rather than a blog, but we are using the blogging capability exactly as non-traditional documentation of our project.

      1. I look forward to hearing about it.

        Thanks, the project has been very interesting. I forgot to mention that the blog part of the site is the “Whats New” section where we document all the work done by the various groups and the rest of the pages are pretty much static.
