Better late than never – the Culminis Restructure…
This org has grown sideways for far too long, and its been rumored that Microsoft was going to step in and fix it. I kept waiting. Today, their last monthly newsletter outlines the changes coming – and yes, Microsoft has stepped in.
Read about the restructuring
I was actually on the original board to get this org going, but dropped out because I didn’t agree with the plan to move forward. The primary problem was that they just didn’t understand community. It was all too heavy-handed acting as if they knew more about you than you do.
If you care about community and User Groups, I highly suggest you read this post. There are things in there that may still leave you scratching your head. I may eventually go into a tirade about how Microsoft has renewed their push to own and control community (this happens about every 3 years), but we’ll see.
And, when you get a chance, make sure you read Graham Watson’s announcement on how Microsoft is changing the way they support User Groups.
