New tools for discovering people

When the people in your physical network are as new to a technology as
you are, how do you find out more? Blogs and social bookmarking, of
course! Totally awesome. Tons of fun. Life would be _much_ better with
a good search engine, of course, but exploring people’s bookmarks
isn’t an entirely bad way to do things either. I found a couple of
clusters of people who aren’t formally linked to each other but who
collaborate, and I also found really awesome early adopters… Whee!
