Every month, we publish articles that you will never get anywhere else. We call them Web Exclusives. We think so highly of these articles that we solicit them, and when we have a space in the magazine, we re-publish some of them in the print book.
We now have five highly read blogs:"Soundoff!," my long running opinion blog; "Unfettered," Joe Weiss' blog on cybersecurity; "Manufacturing 2020" by Dan Miklovic, longtime Gartner vice president; "ControlTalk Blog" by Greg McMillan; and "The Great Kanduski" by industrial networking guru Ian Verhappen.

Now we're in the process of curating the best content on the web for you—our content, old content from our site you might want another look at, or the best of content from other sites we monitor.
We use Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter and many other sources as origination points for these curated stories. If you have seen a story, send its URL to us, and we may add it to the Big Content Mountain.
We're also moving to an entirely new content management system. That's the back end of the site—the part that makes it work. We should be on the new system by the end of the summer, and the site will be faster and we'll be able to do more things. One of the things we expect is that it will be easier for you to comment on articles, blog posts and give us feedback.
Here's some of the Big Content Mountain you may have missed:
- Distillation Control and Optimization, an ebook by Béla Lipták at www.controlglobal.com/wp_downloads/110906-ue-distillation-book.html.
- The Flow Forum; we've partnered with ABB to produce a knowledge center on flow measurement. You can find it at http://tinyurl.com/ox6smlb.
Enjoy, and talk to us!
