  • Cyburbia: The Planning Community: "The Cyburbia Forums is the oldest and most active English language urban planning message board on the Internet, and one of the small number of online communities where members enjoy intelligent, spam-free and troll-free discussion about practically every subject under the sun. Cyburbia has hundreds of active members, yet is a strong community full of creative, friendly, and occasionally offbeat planners, architects, students, urbanists and other like-minded people who care about and/or help shape the built environment. Cyburbia Forums members enjoy a sense of community and camaraderie that is unmatched by a listserv or any other planning-related web site."
