This may be old news to some (and hopefully I didn't overlook an old post) but I just read an article in PLOS Biology: "An Introduction to Social Media for Scientists" (http://journals.plos.org/plosbiology/article?id=10.1371/journal.pbio.1001535).

In it, Bik and Goldstein highlight TONMO as a example of a good online community.

"Online communities can be especially useful for niche topics where community members have specific needs or require specialized interactions. For example, blog updates and discussion forums can offer user support for software (e.g., programs written in R, http://www.r-bloggers.com), while communities of taxonomists may benefit from a wiki devoted to a particular group of organisms (e.g., the Octopus News Magazine Online for cephalopods, http://www.tonmo.com)."


Nice job everybody!

Thanks! I think I did tweet about this / put it on our Facebook page, but I'm not sure I posted about it here. I was thrilled when I spotted that, not too long ago! :thumbsup:

Thanks @CephBirk ! I seem to recall @tonmo mentioning it but I don't think he posted the context on FB (If you did Tony, I missed it :oops: and I rarely look at Twitter).
