An End, A Beginning

This will be one of my final posts on Pimp My Clarion.

As part of the Tech Evangelist job, I’ve moved the "redesign" of Pimp My Clarion into a separate project, new URL and all that (the URL hasn’t been set in stone yet).

My apologies to all those who have been offended by the use of ‘Pimp’ in the title. And in my language. I’m remedying the title with the new site, and I’ll do my best to clear it out of my vocabulary. Need to find another word .. ‘Bling Bling’? Heh heh.

There has been some renewed newsgroup action on my post from a few days ago, subject line: ‘[Pimp My Clarion] All Hail Clarion’. It’s good to see people sharing their thoughts and concerns. It’s far more important we talk these things through in a private or public arena with clarity, diligence and .. ‘compassion’ might be too strong a word, but something like that. Not jumping around waving a fire brand.

THANKYOU to everyone who I’ve conversed with over the last few days. Without exception I’ve gained more understanding with each conversation. Each email.

There are a lot of plans for the immediate future. I hope that the community not only benefits, but truly succeeds. Not just because of what I do, but because of what people will see _can_ be done, and that sparks them into further action.

That’s a very generic paragraph .. but I can’t be more specific at the moment. Apologies.
