Those were actually officially published by the Technical Committee
(prepared by the "communications" workgroup that Anne was leading), so
they were reviewed by TC members and represented the consensual view.

There are really only two options:

Editorial content to some official publication, where the posts are
vetted by a review committee for correctness/consensus: that's what
SuperUser is doing, and what the "official blog" was(?) doing.

Personal content, where opinionated blogs are automatically aggregated
with minimal on-topic checks: that's what the planet is doing.

(Sometimes, a personal blog post makes great SuperUser content and is
copied over)

We could add a specific, technically-focused editorial outlet, or we
could set up a specific, technically-focused personal blog aggregator.
But I feel like we could also reuse the SuperUser publication and the
existing Planet. The main issue seems to be the lack of produced
content, rather than lack of discoverability of the existing outlets...
