Yancy’s decision to relist vowe.net was right. Period.
That others don’t want to be on the same personal website (aka bloggers) list than somebody else is from my point of view kinda … don’t find the right word … childish? No … but goes in that direction. It’s just a list of blo… personal websites for heavens sake.
IBM did not interfere and that is the best that they could have done. Does PlanetLotus loose a lot? Nathan and Peter together have less posts than me this year (really? can’t believe it). Vowe.net is one of the most read „personal websites“ on PlanetLotus. Still sad, but we get over it. Others have left before.
I don’t know, if Peter and Nathan have realized it, but they can not go to „Connect-o-Sphere“ next year. Since they don’t want to be on a list with Volker, being in the same town or same conference center is out of the question. I don’t think Volker will stay at home. Too cold in Darmstadt. The old bones need a bit of sunshine.
I want to thank everybody who stuck their head out, to help Yancy and came forward with a lot of good arguments. Some of you may even have got in trouble with friends. You never came forward with names of people who sent those emails, Yancy was probably flooded with (can’t be just two or three) and that is just great. We can now all forget about it (no „time for healing“ or other sentimental stuff now, just forget about it).
That’s it for that.
Have to swipe the floors now.
No, you can’t get another coffee. The espresso machine just broke down.
Know what? I can’t list my blog on Collaboration Today. I don’t know what category would fit.
