Introducing the myHome Blog

Contributed by Matthew Modrowski on 10/09/2008 

If you haven't noticed already, there's something different about your "Home" tab in myHome at Ithaca: the "Feedback" portlet is now "The myHome Portlet". In addition to letting you send in your comments and suggestions, the revised portlet provides easy access to the new myHome Blog. The myHome Blog is the place to read and discuss the latest myHome updates, its portlets, and some sneak peaks at soon-to-be-released features. Keep your eye on that space for up to date myHome news.

And for those of you who haven't tried myHome yet, give it a whirl. You may like what you see.
