ObjC hasn't really been used by enough people for long enough to have its folklore published yet. That's OK. The books that capture the spirit and the conventions of any development system are distilled from news groups and mailing lists. You can always go to the source.


Stroustrup suggests that if you are seriously using any language, you should subscribe to at least two news groups/mailing lists dedicated to it. I think that's good advice.


For ObjC the best candidates seem to be:
cocoa-dev@lists.apple.com
and
macosx-dev@omnigroup.com


You can learn a lot just lurking. But do ask questions. The folks are friendly and helpful.
