I've had several chats recently with Anne Lucas, who took over the iSeries Nation when Malcom Haines left. One of things we've discussed is whether there would be any benefit to creating subgroups for the citizens to belong to. Specifically, are there special things iSeries consultants are looking for from the iSeries Nation? Are there things we can learn from each other that we don't learn interacting with the community as a whole? Are there any special services or deals IBM could/should offer consultants who are members of the iSeries Nation? Are there any special services or deals we, as consultants, could offer to other citizens? And if so, how could IBM support making those available? Lots of questions!

Anne has assured me she does have *some* funding, so if we come up with good ideas that would benefit the iSeries Nation, there is a possibility she could help get them implemented...
