Aside from the great conversations that will happen within this network, please take a hop over to the Classroom 2.0 Ning Network that has grown to well over 6,000 educators from across the globe focused on the implementation of Web 2.0 technology (as well as others) into the educational space.
Classroom 2.0 is how I got hooked on social networking to begin with! Where else could I ask a question of, and receive responses from, educators from all around the world in a matter of hours or days? I believe Steve Hagerdon has successfully harnessed the power of social networking and displayed it a collaborative tool through his Classroom 2.0 site. Never underestimate the power that word of mouth plays in all this. I read an excellent book years ago, "The Tipping Point" by Malcolm Gladwell that talks about how little things can make a big difference. In this instance, it has.
