If any new developments with Blender occur or anything interesting happens within the Blender community, BlenderNation, the main news site for anything Blender-related, reports on it. BlenderNation (www.blendernation.com) covers events, reviews books, and presents tutorials.
In particular, this Web site is a great way to see what kind of professional work is being done with Blender. (Many working professionals don't always have time to be active on the forums at BA.org.) BlenderNation also reports on topics that, although perhaps not directly related to Blender, may be of interest to Blender users (such as news on open source software or events in the larger computer graphics industry).
