In my continuing discussion with Community Stars across the country, I had a discussion today with Sadashiv. Though he works out of chennai and was here for a short trip, he found time today to discuss the opportunities for Community Star program to improve on.
Some of thoughts we generated out of the discussion are as follows:
1. Community Stars are disengaged 'cause of lack of communication with them from MS. Better communication channels need to be developed.
2. Award experience and delivery of the Community Star benefits leave a lot to be desired.
3. Community Stars feel that MS is not laying enough importance on Community Stars and do not value their contributions much. More information needs to flow to CSs.
From our end, we are doing the following:
1. Launch an extranet portal exclusively for Community Stars. We will host issue submission on this site. Also, we will share opportunities via this site e.g. beta opportunities
2. Re-launch the Community Star distributi

Around 1400 AD, the ruler of Gujarat granted the
It doesn't happen everyday that a government sets itself in a way that may well turn out to be a disaster. The recent decision by Kerala Govt. to mandate Linux in high schools is just one of them. This is in the aftermath of having banned Colas in the state. ( So tell me are colas more dangerous or are cigrattes and alchol? Why not ban them instead? ) "Stallman has inspired Kerala’s transition" quotes the education minister. Since when did foreign nationals start insipiring Indian govts. to take action? The interest of a state and region are now better understod by a foreign national? "Achuthanandan’s government to develop the state as a FOSS (free and open software systems) destination" - WHY? WHY? the govt. is now deciding on behalf of its citizens what technology will students study? after liberalisation in '91, it was amply clear that there is merit in delinking economy and politics. why link up politics and technology now?
