Microsoft has soft-launched a new community site designed to allow IT professionals to network with one another.
The new site, called Aggreg8.net, is a joint effort between Microsoft's TechNet team and Culminis, a self-described "international not-for-profit organization devoted to the development and growth of the IT community." Telligent is hosting the site for Microsoft.
"Aggreg8 is a site for IT Pros to mix-n-mingle," blogged Kevin Remde, a Microsoft IT Pro evangelist. "It's like a 'MySpace' (or a Windows Live Spaces) for IT Pros, complete with working groups on various topics that IT Pros get excited about."
The site includes discussion groups on topics ranging from patch management, to healthcare IT.
