I received this e-mail from our district K-12 Strategic and Major Accounts Manager today: "We have a great opportunity for San Diego City Schools to be part of our Macintosh Customer Council." "The objective of the council is to allow our most strategic Mac customers to have a direct voice into what products are being developed for the Mac. The basic requirements of participation involve a conference call once a month (second Thursday of each month for one hour) and 2 visits to Redmond per year. The district would be responsible for travel costs. Microsoft will take care of your meals for the visits to Redmond and typically reserve very competitive rates for your lodging. Other benefits of membership include access to a private website thatÕs exclusive to members to allow you to post feedback and share information with other members." I'm somewhat taken aback that Microsoft has created this Council, and it bodes well (I hope) for our Mac community in general. Goodness knows I've got some ideas of what I'd like to see happen, but I couldn't possibly charge forth with this opportunity without asking two things from the magnificent members of this respected forum, MacRumors. 1. Has anyone else here received a similar e-mail regarding the Macintosh Customer Council? 2. What would you, dear reader, like to see brought to the table if given the opportunity? I need to be in an initial conference call on Friday, August 2nd, to offer my commitment, which I intend to do so. I couldn't imagine being involved in this without the highly regarded comments, opinions, and input of this message board to bring to the table. Fire away.
