One of the great things about emerging technologies is that there is always a great sense of community and excitement. I would like to think that within the partner space and within Microsoft, I have a good idea of who is interested in Unified Communications and perhaps more importantly, I can call on the community when I need assistance.
One of my colleagues, David Overton, has created http://uksbsguy.com/ to build a community around Small Business and it got me thinking, does the same exist for Unified Communications? ... the answer it would appear ... is yes !
Its only a small community at the minute, but if you pop over to http://mucuguk.org/ and sign yourself up for an account, you can help make this community better. I fully intend to set aside some time to spend on the forums and I hope to see you there too soon. They are also planning a few event at Microsoft in Soho and Reading, I will be attending the latter so look out for me there :-)
