Windows Server User Group UK on LinkedIn

The Windows Server Team was the creation of Scotty McLeod - and Scotty continues to be our group leader.

Unfortunately though, Scotty had a serious accident several months back and, although he continues to make a steady recovery, no-one else knows how to administer this website (and I'm not going to bother him for the credentials as I want him to concentrate on getting better!)...

...that means that we have no way of finding out who our members are and no way to contact you should we do what we talked about at the community day in April (was that really 3 months back?) - namely to start to organise some events.

So, with that in mind, I've created a LinkedIn group to supplement this website. Many of you will know LinkedIn - a professional networking site - and I'd ask you all to join the Windows Server User Group UK on LinkedIn.

LinkedIn's terms of service for the group do require me to provide LinkedIn with a list of the names of our group members, if required; however we should have no worries about privacy as they also state that:

"LinkedIn participates in the EU Safe Harbor Privacy Framework and is certified to meet the strict privacy guidelines of the European Union. All relationships on LinkedIn are mutually confirmed, and no one appears in the LinkedIn Network without knowledge and explicit consent."

I look forward to seeing you over at LinkedIn and hopefully this will be the first step towards organising some user group events. In the meantime, Austin and I will keep on blogging over here and one day we should be able to get this website back to being the focal point for our community that Scotty originally intended it to be.
