> Maybe exploring the ISOC connect tool

​I am currently participating in a review of ISOC Connect as to whether it
should be continue or be replaced. There has been a fair amount of
grumbling,, especially from the old guard, however one thing I have already
learned is that, as far as ISOC goes, while some Chapters in Africa do use
it as their primary avenue of communication, it's main and important
function is to provide shallow water for new joiners to get their feet wet,
get an idea of the community, and a sense of belonging. A newbie
playground. The idea being that the keen ones may graduate to traditional
vectors such wg's, email lists, wiki's etc

There are also other functional nitpicks that are never fixed. Part of the
problem is that it is a hosted platform (think a glorified Xing) and thus
no real change can happen unless it is put through on the whole platform.
OTOH this is possibly less maintenance than a standalone such as the FOSS

To some extent the lack of action on At-Large email lists attests to the
success of the Adobe Connect + Confluence combo, but this may lend itself
to elitism. I think, like ISOC, At-Large could look at driving wider
