June EA preview: Online message boards for electrical engineers

The June issue of Electrical Apparatus Magazine will include a Fast Forward column on online message boards. Message boards, or Internet forums, are online discussion sites where people can communicate on a variety of topics through posted messages. If at least two people are interested in discussing a subject, odds are there is a message board for it—politics, movies, sports, music, business, home improvement—the list goes on and on.

Various message boards are available for engineers as well, but the multiple sub-sets in engineering fields mean discussion sites rank in the thousands. Eng-tips.com and LinkedIn discussion groups can be considered representations of the power of conversation across an industry.

This issue will also have extensive coverage on this year’s EASA Show in Boston, June 29-July 1.
