After a quite nice reception of the idea to have topic challenges for our site we are about to start the second. It's the second one of the top-most voted challenge ideas. And it starts now and will also run for two weeks.

Biweekly topic challenge #2, February 7th - February 21st

New types of sensor nodes
Questions about new and emerging endpoint technology.

(suggested by Sean Houlihane)

Additionally there is a little chat gathering, tomorrow, February 8th, 18:00 GMT—Topic Challenge #2—to kick off the challenge, gather more opinions and ideas on the challenge and get some starting buzz going by finding some places to promote questions of the sort.

This topic doesn't seem to need an extra tag, but remember to tag every challenge question with .

Let the challenge begin!
