So what’s happening here?
PMI tries to take control. I am happy to live in a country where censorship is not so strong yet. For example deep linking has been allowed by the highest court in Germany as every web site owner can redirect deep links to his homepage if he likes.
I cannot rule out that some of the spirit of the linking agreement might have influenced the decision of who gets a position in the core team of the new guide. And history tells that the PMI forgets what people did for them quite fast, so nobody should invest too far in the future regarding his relationship with the PMI. A number of volunteers I know already left and the disbanding of the old PMI SIGs just emphasizes my point.
My hope is that the PMI concentrates more on creating value for their members and strengthens the relationship with their volunteers instead of keeping the current approach regarding control of information.
