DB2 Community Resources

IDUG recently posted links to their Facebook and LinkedIn presence.  There are actually many more places to collaborate with IDUG and other DB2 practitioners and users online, and I've pulled together a list of all the sites and groups that I know of.

If there are any DB2 resources that you know of that I haven't included, please leave a comment and I'll add them in.  (And I'll look to publish a similar list for Informix shortly.)
