Hah! Just found this topic, good read to hear other's experiences finding this place. Mine was pretty simple; I already knew I was going to pick up an eReader when I first heard about them (I actually tried to find a Librie, but they're pretty scarce... even here in Japan), and I found most of my information through the Make magazine website <- pretty cool magazine with a ton of neat ideas! Anyway, I had stumbled across this site while still garnering information about the device, but kind of blew it off for its simplistic forum look. I know, I know, looks aren't everything but I wasn't sure I wanted to spend so much time farming a forum for information. As luck would have it, I found my way steered back to the site when looking for ways to make my existing eBooks compatible with the device and, running out of options through Google, I found myself back here again. This time I decided to browse a bit more and found out that I had initially ignored an excellent source of information, tools, and great people! I've followed a few other forums and tend to notice sometimes there are people that aren't too helpful or just act like kids; not here, everyone is quite helpful and the developers actually listen to people's comments/suggestions. Right now, quite frankly, I'm addicted to this site and usually check a few times a day to see what's new and try to help others when I can.

Thanks for bringing us a great source of information to the community Alex! Even though a few of us intially didn't see through the retro-esque interface, I've found the search features and minimalistic approach to be quite useful and non-distracting.
