Oracle Blogs Homepage Re-org

We've re-organized the homepage by topic area. You like?

It was just becoming too difficult to wade through all the item-by-item descriptions (most of which were repetitive). You'll also note an expanded aggregator.

IMO it's an improvement, but if I get enough screaming and yelling for a rollback, that's fine too.

Of course, OTN Semantic Web Beta is still the best way to navigate the blogosphere, even if it does aggregate only a subset of these blogs.


Very nice Justin. Much easier to find what you're after. I would also suggest a link to "Get a blog" and "Add a blog". I know there are employees who want to have blogs, but aren't sure how to get them. And other bloggers may want to have their blogs added to our list.

Yes, I definitely prefer the new layout, it's much easier to target blogs related to a specific area. Is there any timeline on when the OTN Semantic Web Beta will be aggregating the full set of blogs too? John.

Looks much better Justin, more structured and easier to find blogs on a particular subject. cheers Pete

Hi Justin, I personally like the new structure. Way easier to find the blogs the user is looking for. Patrick PS: You wrote that the aggregator has expanded. In which way? Which blogs are included?

Thanks for all the feedback. - Alas, I don't have a date for you on SemWeb. This project is delayed for the moment for a variety of reasons. - Initially there was an "add a blog" link on this page but we were forced to remove it, as it was exposing an internal URL. - The aggregator has been expanded to include more recent posts, and we are adding new RSSs to it all the time.
