So Finxextra launches professional network , allowing bona-fide technologists to register and contribute.      

For a blogger there appears upside in terms of distribution, with your headline going out with each Finextra update it will be far easier to go from zero to some readers, and your words may gain apparent weight when official journos have gone to town to integrate your topic into the news they are delivering.  But on the flip side I wonder how Finextra will handle conflicts of interest when one of their bloggers says something anti one of the Finextra sponsors?  (I don’t know, are there particular t&c or does anyone otherwise know?).    Are there also linkedin/facebook type func’s on this?   with a community limited to just bona-fide punters then is this the “bloomberg messaging” moment for the technologist community?   ..or is everyone already facebook’d or ning’d out and looking for a place to consolidate theirspace ?

    If you want to know a bit more about the Finextra Commnity, why don’t you just sign up. It’s free and there are no catches, aside from the fact that we expect everybody to behave themselves. Our t&c’s are fairly straightforward. You take responsibility for your own comment and so long as it’s not libellous, gratuitously insulting or an obvious sales pitch we won’t interfere (and nor will our ‘sponsors’ whoever they may be). As a gated professional community we expect it to be self-policing. It’s still early days and there’s plenty more we’d like to do, but the community already seems reasonably active and healthy. Why not give it a try – we’d be happy to incorporate your content on the site.

  2. My registration has been accepted. While I’ve been called many things in my time (only some ending up in HR) I think this is the first time I’m officially bona-fide. Er, whohoo! Now….what to post where……
