I’m a member of some fun new communities these days. Laura Quilter, the esteemed webmistress of FeministSF.org, a resource site with associated listserv that I have been a part of for more than 10 years, recently set up a wiki, a forum, and a blog.
I’ve been spending a lot of time editing the wiki (user name JLeland). Putting together bibliographies pleases my nitpicky research side without taxing my limited reserves of creativity. And my administrative powers do cause me to burst out in evil chuckles now and then. The forums are seeing a fair bit of activity related to the Book Discussion Group, a subset of the listserv for lo! these eight years which I coordinated for a while. I haven’t joined in the current discussion of Nicola Griffith‘s Ammonite, but if you’ve read the book, you might want to check out the forum, because the author is there answering questions.
The most striking success of the lot is the blog. Already it has started some hopping discussions stretching across the blogosphere, from Emerald City to Making Light to Whedonesque (!). All this after being online for a little over two months. We’ve got a great group of contributors, and more are always welcome. Come check it out! Or join!
