Thanks upcoming for another example of how to not work the smart way.
So, the new upcoming is there. I have not played around a lot with it much, but already miss the lists as i use it for the overview I actually need.
But then other than that I am very happy about their launch. Because they will make a PERFECT new entry for my presentation around “a european view”.
As an old school user you can get for free a tshirt with a nice logo to smooth the transition to the Yahoo ID system. Readers of this blog probably already guessed it: If you are in the states.
Shipping costs are high, I am fully aware of that – but I am around the corner at the moment as in SF. I would also be really happy with just a sticker. There are more than enough users in Germany, we would even organize something to GET them delivered.
Yes even pay postage and DO the delivery in German on our own. Now again, as usual, we get rejected and pissed off. Good job.
But why should upcoming care at all?
Well, let’s start with that I have been pushing all of my peers to use upcoming in Europe.
Explain how to use them.
Suggest how to make use of them as a promotional tool.
In German and in English.
I though about writing a longer introduction for beginners – in German and English.
I am what you call an evangelist. One of those you actually love to have.
And I get frustrated just because somebody has not done their homework because there are smart ways to deal with this.
This sounds grumpy but actually I am loving it. Because those are always great as “how not to do it” and as I said it will make a perfect slide. :)
Somebody with suggestions for a more useful service who is willing to think before they do stuff?
