SeattleTechWiki:What SeattleTechWiki is Not
SeattleTechWiki is a resource, not a discussion list, a news site, a jobs site, or a calendar.
- Discussions: If you want to discuss a topic, we recommend the excellent Seattle Tech Startups list. Most of the members of the list are people at computer-related startups or interested in them, but many discussions are applicable to other companies and/or technologies.
- News: If you have news you want people to know about, contact one of the local news sources rather than creating a page on the wiki. If the information you are thinking of posting is of transient value, as in a current news story, it belongs on a news site. If the information has permanent value, then it is appropriate for SeattleTechWiki. It is always appropriate to link to an article about your company, or a product page or press release on your own web site.
- Jobs: Like news, job postings are transient information and there are plenty of good jobs sites, including some excellent ones built by Seattle companies. A link to the permanent jobs page or section on your web site is always appropriate.
- Calendar: If you have an event to promote, SeattleTechCalendar is the shared, community-owned calendar for the community, with more than thirty community partners. Additional appropriate partners are welcome (contact firstname.lastname@example.org). Non-partners can submit events by sending a meeting invitation to mailto:email@example.com. For organizations with regular events such as monthly meetings, it is also appropriate to list your recurring events on your page on SeattleTechWiki. Do not list individual events.
