I know I'm a little late here, but I finally have a Ravelry account!
You have to understand, I don't have a Facebook account, didn't have a Flikr account until I signed up with Ravelry and I haven't posted anything on Youtube. Myspace and this blog seemed like enough. So I kept ignoring all of the mentions of the site on practically every knitting blog out there, refusing to join anything else because I assumed it was just another social networking site as opposed to an organizational tool. But it seems like a great idea, and I hope I stick with it.
Ravelry is still in its Beta stage, but there is a long waiting list to join, so don't do what I did and just ignore the signs.
My ravelry profile is fibrous.
Speaking of technology, last night after listening to the latest cast-on podcast, I searched for more podcasts to listen to. Apparently not only does everyone stop knitting in the summer, but knitters stop podcasting during the summer too. About 3/4 of the podcasts I had found are no longer being made. My favorite podcaster I found last night, and unfortunately one of the ones who are no longer active is Irie Knits. She seems like a really fun person, and although the casts aren't new, they're new to me.
