Twittering but Which Networking Communities exist?

Yes, this time I am asking you a question, so why don’t you just leave me a comment?

Fewer posts lately
First off, I would like to explain my lack of posts. I have had less creative input lately, so I can’t actually find anything interesting enough to write about to make it fun – and that’s a big part of maintaining this blog; having fun!
I’ve had some valuable input on my attempts to create a Web 2.0 IP Calculator, and I’ve had critics .. the bad, the good.

You inspire me!
I must say that the thing that inspire me the most to work is to see something I’ve created being used and from seeing Google searches hit this blog with articles directly related to the ‘googled’ issue, it gives me a good feeling inside.

Twitter
Lately, I’ve fell for the Twitter hype and you can find my tweets over at http://twitter.com/holmie, it would be fun to follow my readers on Twitter – so if you have a user there follow me!

Website statistics and the future
Anyhow, the good critics have been more visible to me than the bad ones – so I will continue this little blog experiment of mine. I can see on the traffic stats that I now have about 200 unique users every week day, except for weekends when the unique visitors drops to from 80 to 150, but there seems to be a lower bounce rate (People are reading articles about work on Sundays, preparing for Mondays?) But the traffic seems to be growing with the content, and that hopefully means that someone finds it useful!

But BACK TO THE QUESTION: Which Networking Communities exists?
I have found small forums, but where have you found study partners or other interesting networking people?
I was a member of groupstudy.com for a while, but the amount of mails where a bit overwhelming and my email client had issues with threading the mails – so I had to unregister. Maybe I will give it a second try!

Other mailing lists that I find interesting are:
cisco-nsp
extreme-nsp
foundry-nsp

Well, if you know of a good resource (a forum, website, anything!) shout it out in the comment box.

My next post will be more technical, I promise!

  1. Your post here is right down my alley. I have been bringing this up lately with my students and I even blogged about it about a week ago. Anyhow, I like the LinkedIN Cisco groups but lately they have been spammy. I am a member of the OSL for CCIE Voice and CCIE Security (www.onlinestudylist.com) I also know that the Cisco Learning Network has some good forums and I find some topics there that are worth it. Facebook has some groups also that I try to keep up with. Other than that its twitter for sure.

    Well, Ill keep checking back as I have not subscribed to your RSS. Glad to cross paths with you.

    Hi Holm, great to see Norwegians with a good blog once in a while!

    I also have about 200 hits per day, but it don’t drop in the weekends. Probably because I post about more social subject and not directly connected to work and stuff.

    As to your question, I’m afraid I can’t come up with something new. I was actually here to thank you for the add at MyBlogLog and now I’m following you at Twitter too. Your welcome to follow mine too of course: http://twitter.com/RennyBA
