    • By “do well,” I mean conversations that create enjoyable discussions to read and join in.

      To start, there is definitely a strong interest in US politics.  Primarily left of center it seems (be forewarned), but there’s an emphasis on digging into the details instead of just repeating headlines or sound bites.

      Motorcycles is also a strong discussion interest.  Reviews of gear by @rtwPaul , photos of new bikes from @DangerDave , and test drives from @Chris create a great deal of interest and discussion.

    • Books.  @Pathfinder reads more books in a month than I do in a year.  Fascinating recommendations, especially if you enjoy Civil War history.  @Chris is also a prolific reading bibliophile and audiobook listener and you never know what interesting read will be shared within an active conversation.

    • Video Games. Sigh. It’s a quixotic journey if you attempt to start such a conversation.  In the 1980s, when video games could be played in the home for the first time, there were only a couple of game systems and most people knew of or had played all of the popular games in the arcade or at home: Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Asteroids, Pitfall, Centipede, Missile Command, Donkey Kong, etc.  For the past 10 years, by contrast, there’ve been Smartphone games like Candy Crush, multiplayer games like WoWC, three or four home gaming systems, computer games, and single player online games. The odds of finding a dozen people to share your retro interest in a popular game from the 90’s is minuscule, let alone finding enough people who’ve played more esoteric games like 2008’s Meat Boy or its 2010 successor Super Meat Boy.

    • Technology, Apple, Android, Elon Musk, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Dev Ops.  Whether it’s the Cybertruck or @JazliAziz ’s latest technology review, if you like talking tech there’s a lot of interest in discovering and discussing it.

      And that’s just off the top of my head.
