Social Network For GIS User Community

A new social network for the GIS user community was recently created, the GIS Forum. With discussions forums on GIS software, AutoCAD, mobile technologies, and more, the GIS Forum offers a rich source of information that's not software specific. Industries like transportation, utilities, education, oil and gas, and public safety have their own sub-groups. There are also regional groups affiliations. Though this site is new, there is already activity on the wikis and forums.

I heard about the GIS Forum from a post on VerySpatial and it sounds like Matt Falkner of GottaBeMobile had a big hand in the project. The seeds of the the GIS Forum were sown on Twitter, apparently.
