A couple months ago, I announced a proposal to start a Stack Exchange site dedicated to answering questions concerning network engineering, similar to how Stack Overflow and Server Fault cater to the concerns of programmers and systems administrators, respectively.
I'm happy to announce that the proposal has made it through the definition and commitment phases and last week was opened as a public beta site at networkengineering.stackexchange.com! The beta process is critical for shaping the content and style of the site, so the more people use it the better we can refine and nurture its content.
Why a Stack Exchange site? The platform has proven immensely useful for directed troubleshooting and answering targeted questions. As opposed to discussion forum threads, which often digress into tangents and off-topic conversation over the course of days or weeks, the streamlined question-and-answer format of the site leverages community feedback and voting to promote what is accepted at the best answer (which the asker can optionally confirm). This medium is much better suited to questions which can be directly answered (e.g. "How can I...?" and not "What's the best...?"); please keep this in mind if you decide to participate in the beta.
