All along, TechRepublic has aimed to be the only Web site created exclusively for IT professionals by IT professionals.

From the beginning, we’ve looked to you, TechRepublic members, to direct our focus and shape our content. This goal becomes even more important now that we’ve reached one million members.

As part of our “Celebrating our First Million” events, Bob Artner, TechRepublic’s vice president of content development, and Veronica Combs, TechRepublic’s editor in chief, will be online to discuss what’s next for TechRepublic. While we welcome your comments every day, this moderated discussion is your opportunity to help us look at the big picture and plan our editorial calendar.

"The only reason we were able to get to one million members so quickly is because we listened to IT professionals tell us what kind of information they needed. Now we want to take the next step, and we need your help," Artner said. "This is your chance to tell us what kinds of content you'd like on the site, as well as what you want to see more of."

If you’d like to share your thoughts on these or any other issues related to TechRepublic’s contents, join the discussion.

Artner and Combs will be discussing:
  • What TechRepublic plans for the coming months.
  • What type of content you like and find useful.
  • What kinds of articles you want to see more often.
  • How you can suggest article topics to TechRepublic.
  • How you can write articles for TechRepublic.

“We’re always looking for new ways to share information and to help people with their jobs,” Combs said. “Some of our best ideas come from members.”
