What is the status of our community blog? There haven't been any new posts in about 5 months.
Thanks, Suresh, for emailing me about this question. I've been busy, concentrating on other things, and haven't logged into TCS for months. I haven't posted new content in my personal blog either (though I've written a series of unpublished posts that may or may not ever see the light of day).
I'm not in a position to generate new content right now for the community blog right now, but I'm happy to help others do it, like suggesting how to polish something, or helping to recruit a faculty member specialist to take a look at a technical post that a grad student produces.
In an extremely generous sense of the word, there have been submissions to the blog over the last few months. No one knows about them but me, because they have all been spammy emails I haven't forwarded. I don't know why I got the mails and not Joe, but maybe he has received some he never sent to me. I must admit, the researcher in me would like to know if the woman who wrote, "I will pay you $50 if you let me write a post on..." would ever have come through with the money.
That's all I've got for now, but I'll start checking Meta regularly again, to see what others think/suggest.
