ACM rolls out new Communications website, which features Putting People First

ACM has launched a new website for its flagship publication Communications of the ACM, the world’s premier monthly magazine for the computing and information technology fields, and Putting People First features prominently on the site (and in the launch press release):

New York, NY, April 30, 2009 – ACM has launched a new Web platform to complement the print content of its flagship publication Communications of the ACM, the leading publication in computing and information technology that is read by computing professionals worldwide. The Website features exclusive news, opinion, research, and information as well as extensive content from the current issue, and the complete archived issues of Communications that span more than 50 years of in-depth coverage of the computing profession. The site also offers access to searchable content from the ACM Digital Library and from other sources around the Web, and hosts a robust blog section that is updated daily. Contributions from a continually growing community of bloggers representing leading industry experts are accessible by both subscribers and the general public. […]

A two-tier blog structure has been created for the Communications Web platform. It includes a BLOG@CACM of on-site experts covering topical computing issues who encourage comments about their posts, and a Blogroll of syndicated bloggers that reflects the geographic and intellectual scope of the computing world with entries and related discussions off-site.

Among the featured bloggers are leading authorities from industry and academia, including Scott Aaronson of MIT on theory, Jason Hong of Carnegie Mellon University on mobile computing, James Horning of Sparta Inc. on security, Tessa Lau of IBM Almaden Research Center on Intelligent Interfaces, Greg Linden of Microsoft Live Labs on personalized information, and Peter Norvig of Google on search. The Blogroll includes postings from USACM on public policy issues; the ACM-W Council on Women in Computing; the Computing Community Consortium for fostering new research visions; a blog on the discovery and application of emerging technologies; high performance computing news for supercomputing professionals; and insights on user experience and putting people first.

Thank you, ACM.
