Which websites have active bitcoin communities with discussion that is going on?

I'd like to see a decent bitcoin blog that publishes one good article every one/two weeks with recent updates on the bitcoin project. – ripper234 Sep 10 '11 at 5:27

Bitcoin Talk is currently the most active.

The bitcoin reddit also has a fair amount of traffic and discussion.

After that, it falls off pretty significantly.

Talk Gold has some discussion, so does and other forums are sparse. (See link to wiki in Chris Acheson's post for a list of all current forums)

There are of course often discussions about blog posts or news items on tech related blogs like Slashdot, Ars Technica, Wired, etc. The same is true of some sites dedicated to online gambling, and some Tor forums dedicated to the Silk Road and similar projects.

There have also been some longer threads that are especially useful for miners at the Overclockers Forum

Witcoin. They have an interesting concept to keep spam down: You have to pay to post (using Bitcoins). Revenue gets shared between the site and the poster your replied to.

Witcoin seems defunct now, though.… – Thilo Apr 28 '12 at 8:59

The wiki has a list of forums. BitcoinTalk and the Bitcoin Subreddit are currently the most active. The forum has a fair amount of activity too.

Say what you will about how much of a bunch of jerks they are, but somethingawful has a huge bitcoin following. (Just not in the good sense!!)
