Microsoft and community

2003-02-07 19:59:02+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Scoble talks about Microsoft and community. One of the discussions we had last night was about the ways that NDAs and similar restrictions keep us from giving manufacturers free press. Often good free press. But as I'm discovering with digital cameras, few people are willing to take the risk that their product is good in order to discover new markets, new applications, or let people share use patterns.

Are we way off, or do we just need a little tweak in our approach to communities?

You don't take an "approach to communities". We participate in communities.
