Vitamin - A Week For Collaborative Blogs

“We need good sources of reliable and varifiable information”

Collaborative blogs are great if you can get them to work. Gaining support, content, agreement and editorial balance all must be extremely hard. Last week Bite Size Standards came out with an initial flurry of activity and now we have Vitamin which is a resource for web designers, developers and entrepreneurs. And it has some major big gun backing from the likes of Molly Holzschlag, Dan Cederholm, Dave Shea, Shaun Inman and Eric Meyer to name but a few.

This is a beautiful site which naturally validates as XHTML 1.0 Strict and CSS. Leading by example is a good thing in my book. And already there is some great content up there.

I think collaborative portals for web developers to feed at have a strong place in the blogging community too. We need good sources of reliable and varifiable information. We need to have common levels of agreement on what is or isn’t best practise. We need sites exactly like these to make our lives easier. OK that’s my rave for the day about Vitamin - its one you should be subscribing to. And I’d expect it to be up there with A List Apart as a universal authority before too long.
