Adam Tuttle
Hi Rob,


Great points. I no longer consider Ryze a part of my daily web visits because I just was not seeing the value of this site. I started the board because there weren’t any related to SD. Perhaps the lack of contributions is both reflective of the "tech culture" in SD and the lack of users/visitors to Ryze. I am not sure...

Either way I think that the policies that Ryze implemented about the "official" vs. Un Official mixers were ridiculous and turned a few people away form this service. Anita worked hard to bring people together and I think she was burned by the whole thing.

SD Craigslist is growing but most of the comments and positing on the board are bitching and moaning and are of little substance.

Adam

I wasn't following it too closely, but it seemed that Ryze announced its policy on only allowing "official" events at around the same time an unofficial event was announced here. Did they ever announce an official event? Sometimes people in Northern California consider San Diego to be a backwater town, but even if this is not the case, you can bet that the big cities are going to get priority.

Lately, I have been hearing a few whispers about "the state of San Diego networking". I know that there are people in this Tribe who work very hard at community building, but I'm afraid Ryze is making it visible just how lame we are- especially when compared to our huge neighbors to the North: the metropolitan areas of Los Angeles and San Francisco.
