HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Happy 14th Birthday, TECHWR-L!

Happy 14th birthday, TECHWR-L! To celebrate, we've launched the
new TECHWR-L Web site, which thrusts us into the 21st Century
(finally!). Behind the new site is Drupal, a content management
system that both updates the look and feel of the TECHWR-L site
and provides a more automated and central system for providing
content.

Take a look around the site! You'll find the following new
features:

* My TECHWR-L allows you to log into the site, mange your
TECHWR-L list subscription, maintain a blog, add blurbs or pointers
to relevant resources on the Web, submit polls, submit job/want
ads, customize your TECHWR-L experience, and more.
* News feeds, using RSS (Really Simple Syndication), pull
timely content from tech writing-related sites. The TECHWR-L site
is also now an RSS source.
* The latest site additions are available right on the home
page. Pointers to new articles, blog posts, current list discussions,

upcoming calendar events, stories, announcements, and more
automatically publish on the home page so you always see what's
new.

While you will find that some of the articles have been brought
over from the previous site, the vast majority will be evaluated,
updated (as needed), and republished in the coming weeks.

TECHWR-L continues to be a 100% sponsor- and advertiser-supported
resource, helping make TECHWR-L free and available to its users.
