3rd Post this week - continuing the good start http://gis.blogoverflow.com/2011/09/maperitive-tutorial-generating-osm-map-for-adobe-illustrator-in-seven-easy-steps/ (Thanks to Igor Brejc)
2nd Post (13th September 2011) is General GIS SE FAQ - hopefully a useful reminder to new and existing users how GISse is to work. http://gis.blogoverflow.com/2011/09/a-quick-guide-to-gis-stack-exchange-questions/
Another Author has already added another post - likley to be published tomorrow.
So the ball is rolling now - hopefully other members will want to start add topics and details for their own post - can be solo or joint effort.
Based on Wordpress so it can be customized to our needs.
Content is King
New content will be coming soon from community members from the GIS Stack Exchange.
2 Authors are wanting to post already - great news
Popular & reoccurring topics on GIS.SE, events related to GIS and the GIS.SE community with a random collection of posts by different authors will give a good wide cross-section of articles.
Popular questions will be also expanded. Commercial and Open Source related GIS posts (includes beta software) are welcomed. Community GIS News and Events will also be included
