This project management community has proven to be a great community in many ways, not only education & knowledge sharing wise but also in terms of Networking.
I've met so many people in person through this community, I interacted with a lot virtually and learned a lot from others. One good recent example is the "Haiku for Project Managers" by Robert Prol.
Robert took project management to another level by defining "The Big Picture" in a few words that are full of deep meanings, rich in experience and in many cases are full of humor. This unique balance between all the latter is great. I did not know what Haiku's were until Robert introduced this form of poetry to me. By time, I became a big fan of his Haiku and he in fact guided me how to write them.
Robert published his first book recently "Haiku for Project Managers" and included words of praise from some of his colleagues in this community on the rear cover page and it was my pleasure to be one of those contributors.
This is an example of what makes this community a great one. You contribute, you help, you learn, you network, you meet people, they motive you and you motivate them.
Thanks for your efforts Robert and congratulations for your new book.
Always Remember: You won't understand the abashed power of a community until you're a part of one.

Everyone always complain that projects are running on tight schedule and time is not enough - Well, time will never be enough if projects are not planned and managed properly.
This is a very interesting project so I thought of sharing it with the community:
This super-tall building would not only become the world’s tallest building, but will be twice the height of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai as it is set to reach a height of 1,700 m and host up to 55,000 people in Tokyo bay, an inlet south-east of the Japanese capital.
