I'm Excited About This
I'm really excited about this new community. Facebook is extremely popular right now, and Ning is just another type of Facebook. It's fun to see all the new faces in there.
For all those who never figured out blogging and RSS, this community provides the same features invisibly in the background. All kinds of writers I've never seen before are suddenly appearing online.
