Update on the growth of the community...
In the wee hours of this morning, the community broke the 500 member mark.
It appears to be growing and evolving in way that people often communicate around a coffee house firepit, singing koombaya songs and sharing anectdotal items of interest to fellow songsters and latte lovers.
I know that for me, I never expected to be apprised and alerted to so many options and tools and other items of interest in the Slackware community.
To be sure (and thankfully so), the G+ Slackware Linux Community has not developed as yet another help site, or forum for tutorial and howto documentation, but rather, a friendly sort of place where people share their experiences, development projects, and humorous anecdotes about Slackware.
Yes we get some of that here, but the visual element involved and the "wall" type display of items that folks are sharing with each other is unique - irrespective of the capabilities that places like faceplant or Linkedin groups try to afford their users.
I think it's evolving into a truly cooperative sharing environment of ideas and resources that serves to strengthen the bond of Slackers everywhere.
I'll prolly report back again when the community's membership hits the 1k mark. In teh meantime, checkout some of the kewl things that others have shared with us all - you don't even have to join to check it out!
