Re: Social NETWORK REALLY ???...
Ozark Sage   2/22/2012 4:31:09 PM
For some of us, who still respect privacy and professionalism, and try to avoid   marketing types and others that use MOST social networks to build the worlds phone company financials upon frivous use terabytes of bandwidth for no useful purpose.... I say NO to everyone below that even dares to refer to a KNOWLEDGE based interchange of ideas such as DN affords us here  as a "social" network.   What ever you want to call a web bassed customer service PLSASE DON'T call it a SOCIAL network.  I for one wish I was not even in Linked In at this point. 

Most of the comments below are are just the beginning of LARGE CASH FLOWS for MARKETEERS and LAWYERS who care about $$$s ONLY.  You need only to look at your TV to prove my point and I believe we should all decide juast where public SOCIAL interaction is and is not appropiate to use and exactly how we should codeify different types of use.

NOT INTERESTED! – But then, again; Maybe I am…

@Ozark Sage, you certainly don't hold back, but I don't blame you.  My first impression of this was, "are you KIDDING-?" While designing technical solutions takes a great amount of collaboration from peers and other disciplines, the LAST thing you'd want is an audience while you're working thru a complex layout.  I think ChasChas put it well, stating, "I'll show it to you when I'm done".  That's my style, too – leave me in peace after the group sessions are concluded.

However, just today, I experienced a scenario that might have me back peddling that stance:  I've been a ProE user for 21 years [1991] but recently landed a contract requiring SolidWorks for the first time.  I would have saved 2 hours today if the SolidWorks session had a live section where I might have asked an experienced user how to execute a (*&%$#%) Swept & Blended section!  Maybe there is a place for an inter-active interface!

JimT@F P I   Jim you obviously get my point. And Yes I am seriously looking for NEW terms to describe focused interest PROFESSIONAL user groups to accomplish what you refer to in your response.  The problem, however, is how to do it safely and build such groups on a public international network such as the internet.  IF one could design an embedded transmission system for internet data streams a multiplicity of networks could exist without fear of misuse.  My company is revisiting certain proprietay RF designs to see if adaptation is possible.  PS new software is always a "B...."
