I've been a member since forever and learned so much just by working on my projects next to other people and chatting. I had tried unsuccessfully to create online meeting places (FB groups, subreddits, bulletin boards) to connect with other makers I met there but because of the hands on nature, most people were too busy to be chatting somewhere online. A lot of makers were also a bit older and weren't into social media. There were so many resources like the San Jose corkboard that had lists of local raw parts suppliers that I just could never find online and now it's all gone...
