I want to be part of #

These are communities/micro communities that I wish to explore and be a part of.

Indie Developers #

These are people who call themselves builders. They build businesses, some build for fun. The community primarily revolves around how we can monzonite our side projects and such. Some examples that I can recall, Makerlogexternal link , Barnacles,external link Indie Hackersexternal link

Gamers #

I didn’t play a proper game since 2010. Been almost 12 years now. I loved to play games. I now have a desktop which can run most latest games, think I’ll start gaming again and join the gaming people I know. They’re very nice people.

Rationality folks #

Some places I think which can be good starting points: Gwernexternal link , Slate Star Codexexternal link , LessWrongexternal link , EA Forumexternal link (These guys making a joke outta themselves now)

Twitter #

I have been using twitter for many years, but never been a power user. Think as I am already using it, better use it properly and make more nice friends. Some resources which might help me up my game: A Guide to Twitterexternal link , Advanced Search for Twitterexternal link

Reddit #

If I had to list which websites changed my life in big ways, it has to be Google and Reddit. To me, Reddit is like the ISS of the internet. I always leave the site impressed, depressed or amused. At-least it makes me feel real things. I’ve been a lurker though, want to be more active there eventually.

StackExchange #

Stack Exchange is a network of question-and-answer websites on topics in diverse fields, each site covering a specific topic. Developers usually hang around stackoverflow but the other communities are also pretty awesome in my experience. Here are a few that I might just want to hang around: Server Faultexternal link , Database Administrators SEexternal link , Cryptography SEexternal link , Information Security SEexternal link , Network Engineering SEexternal link , Electrical Engineering SEexternal link , Raspberry Pi SEexternal link , Computer Science SEexternal link , Unix & Linux SEexternal link , Mathematics SEexternal link , Physics SEexternal link , Cross Validatedexternal link

Guwahati Art and Design community #

Think these bunch are onto something. Pretty cool stuff.
