Twitter, Four Square, Facebook, and other social media sites are redefining the ways we interact with friends, colleagues, and family. Connectedness and the opportunity to find information quickly are crucial in today’s world. But ‘old school’ formats such as e-bulletin boards still have their place on the web. One such example is our very own BioTechniques Molecular Biology Forums (http://forums.biotechniques.com/). Te Troubleshooting Forum section in each issue is based on topics and conversations collected from these forums. Tens of thousands of scientists visit the forums each month, posting questions, providing answers, or checking out the latest trends and emerging research topics. While our forum interface might look simple by today’s standards, the information and answers you get there are cutting-edge. So, if you have a burning question about molecular biology techniques or are just generally curious about the field, visit the forum and see how good ‘old school’ still works.
