I much prefer the no-ad look of Microchip over the Syracuse site.

ttemple, thanks for commenting. I assume these are forums. Can you help us out by giving links or complete names? Thanks.

They are the links from your article.

 An example of a very active forum would be:

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/categories

 

A "wiki" type site may also be an interesting format to consider along with a forum type site. e.g. wikipedia.com, etc.

Well Ann, engineering.com has a large site which over the years has become somewhat unwieldy. There are a large number of forums and it looks like it has become so large as to be problematic. This info is passed along since the Design News idea is a good idea but may suffer from similar woes as it grows.

Thanks for the feedback, ScotCan. I can see how that could be a problem after awhile.

One way of getting around any unwieldiness would be to create a collaborative App around some of the more enlightening contributions to the DESIGN iDEAS which could be accessed by the Design fraternity.

Imagine an App for "Problems & Solutions in Aircraft Manufacturing" or the "A-Z of Battery Manufacturing" gleaned from the collaborative effort of numerous engineers and designers.

Imagine an App around the fascinating "Sherlock Ohms" series.etc.

Imagine a cross polliation to EDN and other sister publications........

Ann,  An interesting discussion platform that's growing in popularity among larger websites is www.disqus.com.  The goal is to use create participation using a variety of formats including breaking news, hot discussions, live events and even video content.

That's a good idea. I think IDEO has a good platform: http://www.openideo.com/

I've had great experiences in Ning creative communities too: http://www.ning.com/
