You might call our current crop of awesome content âTechWhirl summer
blockbusters.â Weâre not talking 140 minutes of action-packed super-hero
adventures, but for folks in the business of producing technical content,
and developing better customer experiences, a debut, a sequel, a recap and
a poll might help you make it to the top of the charts.

Weâre delighted to welcome Fabiano Cid as our newest columnist. Fabiano is
a localization super hero based in Brazil who provides some great lessons
from the World Cup. DITA superstar Jacquie Samuels has the lowdown on
building out a DITA content strategy. And we round it out with the current
poll question and the best of the web this week.

As always, we want to hear from you on the topics that matter to tech comm
and customer experience pros. Check out the email discussion list
<>, or post a comment in the community forums. We think
they are the criticsâ choice.

Have a great weekend!
