Which was approximately the same time as a more significant event to this industry, the assimilation of Tandberg by the Borg.
and now Radvision by Avaya - this is a giants game. good or bad, this is the industry.
I am still debating whether the Tandberg assimilation in Cisco is for the better. Some things are better some are not, but I guess that's the way things work. Any guesses what would come out of the Radvision acquirement ?
I don't think mergers or acquisitions played a role in members losing interest in the forum. I think it has to do with the rapid pace of development of social networks and other avenues to discuss VC issues. This is a case of information overload in my humble opinion.
