Just Ning’n it

Have you all heard of the Ning? It’s another online social networking tool that is available on the web. I like it better than MySpace because you can create your own groups, ning etc. Nings have been around for a little while but are just starting to really take off probably due in part to the Nerdfighters ning, which was started by John and Hank Green. John is a YA author who’s two books, Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines, are not only great reads but award winners, as well. Hank is also a writer and web designer and has his own website called Ecogeek, which shows us way we can be more enviromentally friendly but also how technology can also be ecofriendly. Their ning (http://nerdfighters.ning.com/) was created as a result of the Brotherhood 2.0 project. This project which lasted all of last year (there are links to it on the ning’s main page) had John and Hank vlogging to each other every day except the weekends and holidays. Anyway, I digress:) Just wanted to give you a heads up on NIngs and also encourage you to check out the Nerdfighters ning and tell you to check it out and also go to ning.com to check out other nings. Whaddya think? I would love to hear your thoughts, leave them in the comments!
