I used to be editor-in-chief for TheServerSide working with Floyd Marinescu (creator). He has just started another community portal called InfoQ that has several tracks of interest (Java, Ruby, Agile, SOA).
What is interesting is the subtle use of Ajax:
- Threaded Comments: You can move over the subject of the threaded comments to view by popup
- Exclusive Content: The rightbar filters via DWR
- Ads: You will notice that the ads on the leftbar will change based on ajax actions as well as full page loads. This shows how we can get smarter and move away from the page load paradigm for displaying ads. We can be smarter as we could display ads based on the action (e.g. clicking on an article)
