PHASE 2 OF THE SITE
As quickly as possible we are planning the following:
- Special Interest Groups (SIG's): I can barely wait to implement
this aspect of the site. There are so many smart people in IICS that those
of us not as smart can learn from one another. Community is important
for us---and SIG's will allow us to learn from one another whether we live
in San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Denmark or Tokyo.
- Here's how they will work. Threaded discussion areas---broken down
within each SIG---will let people hold discussions and others to "follow
along". You can start a discussion, continue/add to a discussion or
just browse one.
- Member Directory: While there will be a rudimentary implementation
initially, a fully searchable (secure members only) online Directory
is coming. That's right, an actual online Directory! This is probably the
most oft-asked for aspect of the Web site. While not an enormous technical
challenge, there still are several items that need to be put in to place
before we can deploy this feature.
- The Book Store: A secure "electronic commerce" area
which will contain the hottest books that you need as an interactive professional.
All at a discount to members. Hopefully, we can implement this quickly
and make it a solid benefit of membership. NOW
Well, that's it. I sure hope you find this site meaningful and will
participate in its growth. Without you, it's worth nothing.
I've been a member for over 10 years and have a tremendous amount of
my energy and passion invested in this organization. Hopefully, it will
show in how we care for and feed the site. Thanks for taking the time to
read this article.
