CTPS Certification Activities Manager Lourenço Dantas announced Friday that he had requested that the agency webmaster explore the capacity of the current website to host a blog to take the place of the TransReport newsletter, currently distributed bi-monthly.

"A blog allows us to disseminate news in a streaming fashion so that informative articles reach interested articles in a more timely fashion," Dantas noted. "It will also spread out our workload so that it is less deadline driven."

Blog in the Cloud with a Cloud

One key feature that will be sought for the new blog will be a so-called "tag cloud," that presents a visual index of search terms, with more frequent terms in larger type sizes. The cloud adjusts dynamically as new blog entries are added.
