Welcome, new editor! We're very glad you've joined us. Here are pointers for a quick start. Also, when you get a chance, please read The Editor Role. You can look at Getting Started for other helpful introductory pages. It is essential for you as an editor to join the Citizendium-Editors (broadcast) mailing list in order to stay abreast of editor-related issues, as well as the mailing list(s) that concern your particular interests. It is also important, for project-wide matters, to join the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forums is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any constable for help, too. Me, for instance! Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and thank you! We appreciate your willingness to share your expertise, and we hope to see your edits on Recent changes soon.

Greetings from the computer workgroup

I'm an editor in the computers workgroup, with my main areas of work in network engineering. There are a number of network infrastructure articles (e.g., anycast, Domain Name System, Internet Protocol, Internet Protocol version 6) that are introduction to a hierarchy of more detailed topics; some of the top-level articles do need a separate Editor review, and, where appropriate, Approval. Lower-level articles need suggestion on further direction; there could also be much more unifying content on network security.

The existing cloud computing article was created in an Eduzendium project, and certainly could stand expansion. I've been thinking about, but not yet formed a clear image, of an article that clarifies among many related issues, including clouds and grids, SaaS, loosely coupled multiprocessing (local cloud?), etc. Transaction load distribution is another issue.

Anyway, I'd be glad to work with you in any useful ways.
