This is all very exciting! I really hope that the new standard and new compilers encourage authors and publishers to publish some new books based upon these modern practices. It is very hard to find a good C++ book these days and even harder to find one consumable by language novices.
So far it looks like as though publishers are just tagging on a C++11 chapter at the end of books that have been recycled since the first standard. This C-with-classes view persists and it really is time for a re-evaluation of the way C++ is approached - this new standard is a perfect opportunity.
I find this idea intimidating. My blog is strangly personal and I am not sure I would want it to be part of my professional portfolio. Sure there is an amount of vanity in having a blog and hoping that somebody reads it, but I would be embarrassed to think
that a potential employer reads my blog.
Though I suppose that my blog would be more appropritate than my Facebook page...
