I ran across MentoringNet in a recent renewal flyer from ACM. I'm interesting in all things mentoring, so I went to look. It's interesting, a matching service for mentors and proteges, but unfortuneately focused on college students mainly. It's also email based (unless you happen to live in the same city I guess). Hard to tell how well it works in practice, but it's at least a start. I wish they'd so something in the hands on technical sector, the jobs we all have! For now I'm going to have to file it under projects I wish I had time to tackle. Posting it here in case anyone is in college or has a child in college, and because maybe it will spur someone to build something really interesting to serve the technical community.

I was one of the original founders of SQLServerCentral.com and helped grow that community from zero to about 300k members before deciding to move on to other ventures.
