I started the in late-August — well, actually in September, when all was really running. My goal was — and is — to be a place where people can get information that helps them do their jobs better and to help build a community. It follows more than three years of blogging at Federal Computer Week and as the FCW Insider.

So this list actually represents slightly more than a quarter rather then the full year, but… given that it is the end of 2008, it’s the list we’ll use. But it does represent the top posts so far. And yes, this is most of them. I put the top ones here… and you can read the full list after the break.

Some brief explanations: The list isn’t totally scientific. In the Web world, these numbers and rankings are indications, but like most data, they have to be interpreted. So, for example, not everybody clicks on a specific item. I will also note that I have not include the ‘most read items from the past 7-days’ items in the list. There were actually 228 items for the year, while this list includes only 219.

All of that being said… the top posts for (part of) 2008:
