I am looking for most recommended places outside of the open government mailing lists to invite software developers interested in open government data to participate in Poplus.org re-usable civic technology "components" effort.

In particular we are building participation in the Poplus Online group: http://bit.ly/poplusgroup

Suggestions?

there's more on reddit if you feel like digging

code for america lets authors post on their tumblr, you could submit a post there

medium seems to be the cool kid blog of the day, you could double down and post it there as well.

code for philly has a linkedin group

every avenue sunlight foundation and okfn offer you: there's a slew of groups and mailing lists

code for hampton roads and code for atlanta have mailing lists, i'm betting most brigades do...

not to mention github.....man there's a ton of groups there.

i know of a few flickr groups but they're most gov-related and you have to be in gov to join...so i couldn't join.

EDIT:
i also keep all of these twitter lists:
