Yea, that's about all we could say. A select handful of people were privileged with attending a summit in Palo Alto a few months ago. We were joined by a very good blend of NC's from different levels of success. We spoke in turns, spitting out whats great and what sucks.
The walls were LINED with large sheets of paper with our thoughts. Ning listened, many of the recent changes like twitter/facebook integration were deeply discussed there and lots our input made it into the releases. At the end engineers and Gina presented a glimpse of what I believe is to be called Ning 2.0.
Premium Service NCs hold on to your hats if that's whats going to be announced in the next few weeks.
RE: Changing of the guard... We've been in fairly constant contact with Jason R. from the moment he came on board. We've always been known for being vocal about neat technologies we need and what sucks. Jason has never failed to have a notepad out, or have an engineer next to us so we could geek out on concepts. Much like everyone here jumped on this new guy Eric we've all come to respect, we urge you to give Jason some time. He's solid.
In this thread, lets all please try to keep positive. Plenty of negative ones already there for voicing your anger.
