Well, that’s because the Community Network team (that means, we/us/ourselves, the SDN and BPX team) is having some fun and partying – I mean: working hard on an external kickoff meeting. And this since Tuesday. From all over the world everybody from the team flew to this place in the Silicon Valley called Palo Alto enjoys the cloudy weather in weather proof and dark meeting rooms, talking about the year 2006 (how was it?), the year 2007 (what are we going to do?) and the evening (where are we going to dine?)
While you folks on your Community Network (SDN and BPX that is) hunt for points, good material and the occasional fun thread during your work-time, we have our heads smoking of what KPIs we achieved and must define. Last year we were proud to pass the 650,000 user threshold on the SDN, the 1 Mio forum posts, the big growth in TechEd attendance and my personal achievement of finally being able to bite into my toe with closed eyes while riding on a bicycle (believe me, that requires some training).
We are not always dead serious or boring as you might have noticed, so my colleague Jodi Fleischman and me prepared a little video together with some other “pirates” from the team celebrating some achievements from the past in a very peculiar style. Don’t watch it during a break, it’s on the SDN and that means serious work and justification enough to take a look at it during your work hours, doesn’t it? (no reason to tell your boss that you enjoy being on the SDN/BPX and actually do have fun).
The video is not available anymore for the public. If you want to see the video, let me know.
