Are communities finding integration through online exchanges?
Posted Sep 22 2008 11:00am
As many of you know, I developed a big chunk of my sense of what the Internet can be, culturally, as an early participant in an online bulletin board called “Wacco.”
It existed first on Yahoo, and now continues as a newer Yahoo group and a large and growing website, www.WaccoBB.net.
I’d like to hear about other forums which have grown large through an onground community such as the Wacco bulletin board. I know of several which exist to serve a global community, coming together through common interests such as entrepreneurship or working moms, for example, but I’d like to know more about online forums which serve a specific region.
Let me know what you’ve seen out in the clouds. How do regional forums develop? Are people utilizing print material to let their community know, as WaccoBB does?
