When NL geeks gather...

As a follow on to my last post, here are a few hang outs for our NL geeks online and IRL.

The International Game Developers Association Newfoundland Chapter are a relatively new community in Newfoundland. Their mandate is to provide a gathering place for the video game development community that is growing in the province. Their key online gathering place is their facebook group, from which they organize meet ups in St John's.

/newfoundland is our sub channel of the popular link sharing site reddit. They maintain a facebook group, and hold meet ups in St John's. All topics related to Newfoundland are discussed here, so posts can be quite eclectic.

The grand daddy of them all, #Goodtimes has been around since before the term social networking became a house hold term. The heart of this group is their IRC channel, where their web community takes on the feeling of a coffee shop, all topics are up for conversation and everyone feels welcome.

If I've missed your online community please let me know in the comments.
