Hello everyone, welcome to the Community Win series again!

Today I would like to reintroduce the Wiki: Technologies Portal (which was created quite long ago), and show you what happened with that since last 22nd November 2011 – basically, in a year.

Very heartening, isn’t it?

    Bring it on, everyone! Let's see if you can get to my 17 edits! (And hope that I don't do more in the meantime!) Mwahahahaha!

    Oh, and I created that portal back on March 8th, 2010. I had this idea, with Gerard Boyer, that the Wiki would feature a few topical TOCs called "Portals", and that these portals, especially the one that sorts by products (i.e. this one that Zoltan mentioned), would be the anchor allowing someone to browse the Wiki without having to search or click on tags (in other words, a different way to navigate for people who just want a table of contents). What a crazy concept! =^)

    I was mostly inspired by this because I did a "listening tour" about TechNet Wiki and what concerns and questions people had. A lot of people had concerns that there was no hierarchical table of contents on the side (like what you get in Help or an online Library). So the portals would act as our TOCs. Say, it helps to ask people questions and then listen to their answers. =^)
