8bitrocket.com Now Using The Ning.com Social Networking Platform
We’ve needed to create a bit more depth to this site for a long time, and with our book coming out next month, we thought it might be time to add forums and other “social” aspect back to 8bitrocket.com.
We dabbled in with a message board a couple years ago, but it got so riddled with Spam that we simply got rid of it. Times have changed, and much better, more deep and interactive services now exist. One of them is Ning, a “white label” social media platform that allows you to create a place for users to connect very easily.
We have now created the “8bitrocket.com Ning Community” to augment 8bitrocket. It’s brand spanking new (about 10 minutes old), but we invite you to come by, create a Ning account, help us get this thing off the ground. We expect to spend A LOT of time there, and to feature good posts and discussions on the front page of 8bitrocket.com.
