OSNews, Generic OSes Today's a slow news day, so I thought it would be a good day to bring up an idea I've been incubating. I've been contemplating launching an OSNews-like site on the topic of Enterprise Computing. Obviously, OSNews covers the OS-related aspects of heavy-duty business, scientific, and academic computing already, and sometimes news on databases, app servers, cloud computing and other related topics too, but a lot of the kind of news that is useful to enterprise IT people falls outside of OSNews' purview, and it's appropriate to keep it that way. But I think that the enterprise IT world could use an OSNews-like site to aggregate and examine the latest news in that sphere. So my question to you, dear OSNews readers, is this: Do you agree? Would you be interested in reading and participating in a site on that topic? Would you be interested in being involved? If so, I'd like to recruit a few editors to help me launch it. Read on for more details. Update: Are there any native Korean speakers who read OSNews? If you are one, and you'd be willing to help me out with a short project, please contact me.

Enterprise Aggregating

David, I think the idea for the site is a good idea!

The thing I like about OSnews is that it brings up slightly more obscure topics/interests than other sites that do similar things ... this is what keeps me coming back [daily]! I also enjoy reading the opinions of many of the authors! Especially Eugenia (and her commentary on many threads).

Focusing on the Enterprise is an interesting angle, and though there are a few sites that aggregate enterprise news, I feel a lot of the articles + commentary stories don't get flushed out well enough with people actually working IN that industry and know what it's all about. The trick is to find that right balance between reiterating what other's have already said, and injecting that industry insider info.
