Not an "official" in the sense of Microsoft supported/endorsed/sponsored. It's an IT person who's trying to keep up on/informed about Windows 8 and in so doing, help others keep up on and be informed.

The OFFICIAL Windows 8 site is:
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/b8/
and has only been up a little over a month.
