So, where do the people go who only want to deal with the technical
issues? How many people un-subscribe from clug-talk because it doesn't
cover ENOUGH technical issues, and tooooo many soft/political/irrelevant
issues (like this one)?
I for one will likely be un-subscribing from clug-talk in the near
future. Simply because it is becoming less and less useful to me - in
terms of work and tech, but also in terms of being useful for the group.
So, now we have clug-TECH, which will serve my goals. If that wasn't
there, then I would be removing myself from clug mailing lists totally.
(whenever I were to eventually decide I had enough...)
Because clug-tech now exists, the group gets to keep me around as a
resource (for better or worse...). How many people have we lost in the
past for the same reasons I'm facing? How many of those are of the type
we desperately want to hold on to? (I'm thinking Aaron Seigo, Cade
Boycott clug-tech if you will. But keep in mind that the folks on that
list are THE folks that can help you out when you get stuck. Sure there
will be a few here, but for how long?
Nope, I think clug-tech is the right move.
