Do you have a Workspace you'd like to promote?

Workspaces has been going for a few weeks now and we're starting to see some great projects maturing. We do a great job of promoting articles but we've not yet been pushing workspaces. I'd like to change that.

If you know of a workspace that you feel deserves a mention here then email me with the subject line "A Worthy Workspace" and send me a couple of sentences and a link to the Worksapce.

Any workspace can qualify: A new standalone workspace, a workspace of an article you've posted, a workspace you've forked or simply a workspace you've used and love. Send in your suggestions!

cheers,
Chris Maunder
