@RHeigl Now that the Wikimedia Tech blog has been launched I was hoping to loop back around and talk with you a bit more about intersections with the MediaWiki blog. I'd like to hear more about your progress and talk about how we can support one another's efforts. Is this (Phab) a good forum? Or would it make more sense to try and synch up -- either with a meeting or on IRC?

@bd808 and @apaskulin My gut tells me that probably one of the reasons we aren't seeing more feedback on this is because of design. My guess is that if we move the gadget on the page, make it more prominent/visible, we might see more engagement. I think it would be useful to talk with some folks in design research and ask them if they concur and what their recommendations for best practices for the design and placement of the gadget.

For now, I removed the bigger/more general categories of Engineering and Technology from the posts and just left them with one category (right now the team or subteam the post is related to). I think we'll want to come to some decisions about categories sooner rather than later because as the number of posts grows it will take a bit of extra time to manually change these.

srodlund added a comment to T250872: Techblog: Unclear "Engineering" and "Technology" categories.

@Krinkle The blog allows for categories and nested/subcategories, so in the backend of the blog, the teams are listed as subcategories under departments -- though it may not cover all of the subteams. When I post, I usually add all the categories and subcategories the post belongs to. I can add Parsing and add that as a category to the Parsoid post.

srodlund added a comment to T250871: Techblog: Brief description about team or product on category page.

@Aklapper Agreed. That is a good idea. I added initial categories but not descriptions. I like the idea of linking to the team page, so people can find out more. Right now, the categories cover mostly WMF teams, but I really think we need to be more expansive with these -- since there is a lot more to Wikimedia Tech with WMF teams.

I added @bd808 as a subscriber to this. He has been investigating importing from Phame and the Wikimedia blog archive.
