ANNOUNCEMENT: NBB Wants You!

JOIN NBB!

At long last, the gates are open for volunteers like you to become a part of NetbookBoards!

In light of recent successes, we here at NBB have decided to expand the subject matter of this blog. As such, it’s looking like the team needs a few new faces… faces like yours!

We’re looking for interested writers, preferably with experience in the industry, to become a part of our swiftly growing site.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Send us an email at admin[at]netbookboards.com (replace [at] with @).
  2. Include your name and a brief explanation of why you want to join the team.
  3. Send a sample of previous web writing as well. If you don’t have any already, send us a brief article covering a current subject in the tech industry so we can get to know your style!
  4. We’re looking for dedicated volunteers willing to write 10-15 articles a week with the possibility of a paid position in the future.

So go ahead – give us a buzz. We expect positions to fill quickly, and we only have a few available.

Good luck, and I look forward to working with you soon!

ANNOUNCEMENT: NBB’s 500th Post!

In the past few months we’ve seen some exciting stuff in the netbook industry. From all corners exciting revelations have appeared, from the rise of MIDs to netbooks for the hearing impaired; the release of the tantalizing beta of Moblin 2.0 and near-confirmation of the mythical Apple tablet netbook. Netbooks are more robust than ever, having barely escaped censorship by Psion at the beginning of this year, but the future holds challenges as well. We’ve covered these stories and more in the past 500 posts, and it is with excitement that we look forward to the questions the future of netbooks holds.

Will Linux finally take the market share it’s yearned for? When are we going to get more futuristic netbooks? And what’s going to happen to netbooks when the economy gets better and budget buys aren’t so tantalizing?

We don’t know the answer to those questions, but as long as we’re still here we’ll be seeking the answers. Thanks for sticking with us, netbookers, and I promise if you stay tuned there will be many more great things to come.

We want this site to be focused on our reader base, so be sure to send us questions you’d like answered on ASK NBB!

Thanks again. Here’s to another 500!

NBB Milestone reached: 1,000 unique visitors

I would just like to congratulate the NBB team. Their hard work has allowed NBB to grow from a small blog to one of the leading sources of netbook news, home to now more than 1,000 visitors on a daily basis. We’re also working on adding lots of new features, such as a database of netbook models, netbook FAQs, and more.

I guess it’s time for a new goal. 5,000 visitors? 10?
