Webmonkey Reborn?

The word out on the street is that Webmonkey has been reborn. If you look at the site you will see a new article on Macromedia Contribute2 dated the 18th of June. Just under that you will see an small blurb stating "We're totally back! Webmonkey is alive and kicking, serving up new articles all hot-n-fresh like a stack of banana pancakes. With syrup." Is it true, is Webmonkey back form the dead? If you have the inside scoop, let us know. Gmail invites to the first person with the inside scoop. [from Off The Top]

Yeah, I heard about two weeks ago that Wired News brought back one of the original Webmonkeys as a contractor to continue adding articles to the site. Word is that Webmonkey will be folded into Wired News in the same way Animation Express was. But save your gmail invite for something else -- I already have an account.

Coolness, thanks Doug. I got about 7 more invites to give away. I'll probably do another scavenger hunt, people seemed to like that... it will just take me some time to think up some good challenges.

Life after death

From what I heard, there was kind of an outcry about Webmonkey leaving (used the time to see what was going on, establish a system, etc), so the powers that be did see that people were looking at the site, and they could track the numbers. It's a great resource, one of my favs for the Javascript tutorial alone.

From the Wired website, the official notice: Webmonkey Returns We heard from a lot of you after Webmonkey stopped publishing earlier this year. So, by popular demand, Webmonkey, the pioneering how-to guide for Web developers, is back. Wired News editors will work with Webmonkey writers to publish two articles a month. As before, these will include tutorials, software reviews and commentary by people who know their stuff. In the near future, Webmonkey will be more closely tied to Wired News, so readers can expect to see the latest on design, engineering, security and culture. -- The Editors
