The Internet is awash these days with blogs, message board systems of this sort, e-mail discussions and just about every other conceivable kind of communication. Both the main strength and most glaring weakness of such communications is that they are almost completely unedited and, often, unorganized, making it difficult to find useful information in them. Some sites are professionally run, even if not run by "professionals", others are little more than ramblings - of interest only to the writer and a small group of devotees. This is as much true of piano-related sites as for other topics.

These kinds of sites can play a major and positive role in passing along information for teachers and students, as well as providing support and a network of contacts that teachers and students might not otherwise have. With that in mind, what do you find valuable about blogs, boards and other sites which serve to network teachers and students? Is there anything that you would change about some or all of them. There aren't any right or wrong answers to this question, but your thoughts might serve to encourage others or help them to better use the available resources on the Internet. :)
