I'm on both Ryze and LinkedIn, and while I haven't actually gotten
work through either, I have found the Ryze experience to be an
interesting one. Most of the activity there takes place in their
message boards (what they call Networks). Anyone can set one up, and
it seems like a lot of people have. The relative few I'm on have a
good signal-to-noise ratio, but I haven't found a
tech-writing-specific board, for what that's worth.

The other thing I like about Ryze is that there are a bunch of "local"
networks that organize face-to-face gatherings. I don't remember
whether they hook you up automatically when you join, or whether you
have to search for it.

Haven't had the time to really make the most of these services, but
that might change soon. Be interested to hear others' experiences,
too. Hope this helps.
