Win a T-Shirt from IT Knowledge Exchange

IT Knowledge Exchange is currently running a promotion to welcome new members — ask and answer one question each, and you will be eligible to receive an IT Knowledge Exchange t-shirt. This week, we have already heard from Ranger2k, Shivaratna, Servo and Satsho, all of whom will be receiving t-shirts. Simply e-mail me at once you have asked a question and answered a question, and tell me your address and preferred t-shirt size. You will receive a t-shirt as thanks within 2-3 weeks. Anyone is eligible, so get into the community and start spreading the knowledge!

Also be sure to check out our “Best Questions” t-shirt giveaway, running through February 9th.

Featured IT Blogger of the Week

This week’s featured IT blogger is Dustin’s Tech Notes. Dustin is a Microsoft MVP who covers mainly Microsoft-focused topics, especially Office Communications Server (OCS). He recently attended the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Virtual Launch, and recaps the keynote here.

If you are interested in learning more about OCS and other Microsoft products, Dustin’s Tech Notes is a great place to start.
