Top “non-technical” SharePoint related links

If you have a strong interest in SharePoint, you may have subscribed to SharePoint related groups and discussions via your favorite social network (FaceBook, LinkedIn, Twitter, etc.) and blogs.  The problem with this approach is information overload. 

The problem goes beyond information overload, I am an IT Project Manager working with SharePoint projects, and when doing research on SharePoint, I notice that many articles are just too technical for the non-technical people involved in SharePoint projects.

If you enjoy reading my blog, it may be because I try to keep the focus on SharePoint but I also try to keep the topics non-technical – I haven’t found many blogs out there that has this focus, so I understand that my audience is specific, and I understand the difficulty you have in finding relevant SharePoint content.

So, I have decided to compile a list of SharePoint related links that I believe is very interesting for non-technical people interested in SharePoint or have a non-technical involvement in a SharePoint projects.
 
I am expecting this list to grow over time with your input, so if you know any links that fits within this list, please pass it over and I’ll add it in (Please note that the list is in no specific order)

Article: Top 10 mistakes made by SharePoint 2010 administrators
“Working mainly on the administration and architecture side of SharePoint, I don't get to do a lot of development. That's not necessarily a bad thing as it means that I can be more objective when it comes to deploying solutions to SharePoint farms and making changes to our infrastructure.
However, I do like to keep an eye on the development side to help ensure that we follow best practice, and frequently come across articles detailing common mistakes made during development. I figured that I have seen - and made - a fair few "common mistakes" over the years on the infrastructure side that might be helpful for those new (and perhaps not so new) to SharePoint administration.”
