New discussion board for downthetubes

I’ve just added a new element to downthetubes which I’m hoping offers a lot more flexibility to discussion and shared information: http://downthetubesforum.ning.com

In addition to a forum, this service allows me to include several blog RSS feeds on its home page, which means you can view streams from downthetubes posted news, Lew Stringer’s and Steve Holland’s blogs in once place, the latter both also terrific resources for British comics.

It’s a terrific use of Web 2.0 technology and I invite everyone who reads this blog or uses the main downthetubes site to become a member.
