Where are the ACTIVE robot discussion groups?

I find this discussion group to be informative but very slow.
Since I assume that there are other more active discussion groups,
where are the ones that you visit?
Links please.
Thanks

The only other group I visit regularly is Home Brew Robotics Club:
<http://www.hbrobotics.org
Activity on the HBRC mail list comes and goes.
I'll let members of other clubs chime in to explain how active their mail lists are.

Once you have adopted a specific microprocessor (basic stamp, avr, basic atom .. whatever ) you will find a wealth of information and exchange of ideas on the forums usually found at the OEM sites for those chips.

But .. please dont confuse "slow" with "useless" when it comes to this group. Some of the greats hang out here and are always willing to help.

Thanks to Mike and others for their responses.

No I don't equate "slow" with "useless"....when the discussion group is active the information is good.
BUT this discussion group IS slow and that is not good if one wants to see the interest in robotics development to increase. I have steered a number of people to this group and almost everyone has asked if this group is dying off.

robosavvy.com forumst are pretty active, its pretty strictly humanoid robotics though. lynxmotion.com forums has some activity as well, mainly regarding products that lynxmotion sells. robots.net has sort of a blog/response system but its pretty confusing to use and obscure.

Gordon's column in this month's Servo magazine (April 2007), starting on page 72, is a great article on newsgroups, etiquette, and an extensive list of robotics groups and forums on pages 75-75 . Take a look & enjoy! JCD

Thanks for the lead.
Like I said if you want individuals to be active in robotics, there has to be a ready place to exchange ideas and designs.

Pogo:
Thanks for the pointer. I use a mail program that has an integrated RSS feed reader in it (Thunderbird) and have added as many of the groups in Gordon's article to my RSS list as possible. Unfortunately, many of the listed Yahoo robotics groups do not have open archives, and hence no RSS feed. Still a few are better than none.
(Disclaimer: HBRobotics.Org does not have an RSS feed yet, but I am actively working to fix that problem.)
