Readers may notice that two new items have been added to the sidebar. A "Read the FNEs" link has been added just below the link to the board FAQs. Below those "recent comments" section the reader will find a new blogroll called "Blogs of the Slacktiverse" which contains links to the blogs of those who asked to be included on the new sidebar. We apologize in advance for any missing links and encourage anyone who wishes to be added to the sidebar to email TBAT.
Don't forget to send in items that you want included in This week in The Slacktiverse May 7/8.

Generating Slacktiverse content.
TBAT would like to thank all the people who have submitted articles and encourages posters who are interested in contributing regularly or irregularly to send in material. Having a number of articles that are ready for publication allows TBAT to maximize the variety of opinions as well as be responsive to "real-world" events and concerns.
TBAT have been contacting individuals who have expressed an interest in submitting materials but stress that people should not feel that they need wait to be invited to do so before sending in articles.
