I think a blog is a great idea, as long as we are committed to
updating it regularly, I would consider something like 2-4 significant
(non-announcement) posts a month a good goal. I think they'll be
overlap between blog posts and the wiki, so we would need to make sure
all information makes it back into relevant wiki pages.

exactly the purpose of the blog would be; I could see a few different
types of posts
1. Announcements - normal Cesium related announcements regarding
presentations, releases, major changes etc..
2. WebGL slanted posts - articles concentrating on either some
complicated graphics problem we recently solved, or maybe some
bleeding edge work we're doing (such as the depth texturing stuff).
These posts can sometimes be brief with just a link to the wiki and
maybe a screenshot or live demo showcasing what we've done. They are
meant for graphics developers.
problem, or we start using some third-party library and want to give
props. I'm sure Mr. Hunter could fill volumes regarding our dojo
build procedure or Jasmine usage. They are meant for JS developers.
4. Guest posts - discussing either some special graphics topic or
maybe just a Cesium user who would like to plug his project and talk
about his experience with Cesium. Target audience depends on the
5. Demo/feature posts - Posts whose main purpose is to highlight a new
feature or perhaps showcase some aspect of Cesium they think people
overlook. We could also trumpet new demos on the website and stuff.
These are meant for everyone and would hopefully get traction on other
My 2 cents,
