Staying current

In the Roles and Responsibilities page (https://www.lds.org/help/support/meetin ... lang=eng#4), the first responsibility for the STS is to "stay current on meetinghouse technology products, services, and policies". What is the best way to do this? I've been STS for six months now, and in that time I've noticed several changes just by accident: going back to review something I read a few months ago and seeing that it is different. For example, there is an entirely new system for webcast (fortunately, the old one still works). And the drive wiping software has changed from DBAN to PartedMagic.

Is there a mailing list I can subscribe to? A Twitter feed or Facebook group to watch? How can we keep abreast of the rapid changes in this area?

I do it by hanging out here.

But there really should be a better way. You could make sure you're subscribed to the "Technology Specialist Communications" newsletter on the subscriptions page. Or review the tech.lds.org main page. But the fastest, most complete way is to hang out in the forum. Because however it's found out, someone will post something about it here.
