How do you find a mentor as a "non-trad"?

The Question:

I'm a "non-traditional" developer in the sense that I'm 38, with 3 years in the game as a Ruby on Rails developer who, through some fortuitous opportunities, was able to teach myself how to develop. I can't say I have a lot of industry connections, and I find myself pretty clueless as to how to navigate the industry career-wise. I'd love to find a mentor who could help me guide my decision-making and help me make sense of the endless languages/frameworks that continuously come out and where my skill sets would be most valuable.

Where did you find your mentor?
