A new channel for IT professionals was launched recently by Microsoft. The Technet Edge.
Quoting from its about page: "TechNet Edge is a place where IT professionals go to get the inside scoop on the latest and greatest technologies. You can do stuff like watch screen casts, check out interviews with people who develop the products, connect with your peers and speak what’s on your mind. It is part of the Evangelism Network and follows its doctrine, so you know we keep it real."

Port 25 - There is an enormous pool of resources and communities throughout the Internet and within the blogosphere dedicated to discussing technology. A ton. Sites dedicated to discussing Linux, Windows, UNIX, Mac – to all technology in all places – and how that does & will affect our lives. However, healthy, productive discussion only occurs when there are two parties listening & responding to each other – the principle element of all communication. This is the foundation that Port 25 is built on.
