As a matter of fact, I'm just in time back to announce the first DB2 'Online Community Action Day' tomorrow on October 1, 2008. It's related to the new 'ChannelDB2' community : "ChannelDB2 is a social network for the DB2 community. It features content such as DB2 related videos, podcasts, blogs, photos, resources, etc. for Linux, UNIX, Windows, System z, and System i". You can subscribe to the community, but Adam Gartenberg asks you to go one step further and "to take just one simple action to demonstrate your participation in the broader community. Just one". Some examples of what you can do :
- Go to a DB2 ListServ, comp.databases.informix, or any of the many developerWorks forums and respond to just one question.
- Send an e-mail to 2 (or 3 or 5) of your coworkers, colleagues, or friends and pass on links to Channeldb2, Planetdb2, Informix Zone, the XML Contest homepage, or other community sites.
- Find a blog post that made a difference in your job and leave a comment saying “thank you.”
Just take a look, if you're into DB2, this will defenitely become an interesting community.
