Blog Authors:  Valerie Skinner   is part of the IBM developerWorks team, getting to know the real developers who make up the My developerWorks community and exploring the world of social networking. I'm enjoying learning what makes developers tick! I'm very interested in exploring online communities and social media and understanding real world application - how they can help people solve problems and work together.

I belong to various communities across the web.. and it never ceases to amaze me how each social site has its own styles and behaviors. Now, I'm not talking about sites with different subjects.. no, these sites share the exact same subject matter, yet the membership and how they interact can be drastically different! Some sites cater to "nubes" while others set themselves apart by being geared to professionals (read snobs). My hope for My dW is similar to yours, one of openness, sharing, and mingling. A place where experts share and novices grow. It will be interesting to see what type of community persona "develops" here...
