Help Me, Help You

I just heard about this site: It looks like you can give or receive help in the software development area of your choice. Besides gaining the satisfaction of helping others (or receiving help yourself), teaching can be a great way to hone your own understanding of a topic as well.

The hackpledge site is a little hazy on details so far, but initially sounds like a great idea. I signed the pledge and am looking forward to helping out my fellow developer as soon as they can pair me up, and maybe getting some help if I decide to learn a new technology for the new year.

Do you mentor people inside work or outside, formally or informally? Are there other sites like this that you’ve heard of?
