Announcing a new management community site
bms at mscis.org

I registered mscis.org while working toward my masters degree (MSCIS -
defined below). Since then I hoped to open a community site for IT
managers to collaborate management ideas. Since I'm making this site
free, it's especially for IT managers in OSS/LAMP environments. The
front page has no user system. It runs off my own custom code, which
I'll probably open source soon. However, mscis.org now features a
management community forum, powered by phorum. I'd like to invite all
of you who:
* Manage CIS personnel
* Manage CIS projects
* Make CIS-related decisions
* Previously did any of the above
* Aspire to do any of the above
My first topic/poll: Employee of the month programs - do they work?
Hopefully, I'll see several of you register and participate. Anyone can
send this to other Linux/Unix user groups, or otherwise help me promote
Site objectives (from the home page):
MSCIS stands for:
* Master of Science in Computer Information Systems – a degree held by
MSCIS.org founder, Brandon Stout.
* Model Spinal Cord Injury Systems – if you're an MD.
* Management Services for Computer Information Systems – for this
website, unless it changes...
MSCIS.org has these goals:
* Promote open source software and solutions
* Seek make more opportunity for those that manage people in a CIS setting
* Sponsor a community for managers and CIS employees to discuss CIS
* Host professional CIS portfolios for members
* Sponsor open source projects, such as phpMyResume, the MSCIS.org
Knowledgebase CMS, and an Addressbook database.
Perhaps MSCIS.org will become a non-profit web-hosting organization.
If you wish to join MSCIS.org, and participate in management
discussions, please join our Phorum.
