Freecycling

Fighting for freerecyling

Four years, and counting…

For four years The Freecycle Network has been vaunting a new website, that Yahoo was only “temporary”, that a new website was only a year away.  It looks closer today than ever, but how close is close.  As the year closes to an end will the new fully functional website be up and running?  I think we all know the answer to that.

Let no-one go away from this and say that I castigated TFN for trying.  Getting IT projects right is a thankless task.  TFN have tried and will continue to try and my guess is that  year ahead we will be little further on, sadly.

Let no-one go away and say that Richard Wallman did not know his stuff, because he clearly does.

Where the split occurs is in what the centre thinks is needed, what with its resources it can possibly deliver – and what the customer needs.   That is a chasm that makes the Grand Canyon to look like a rut in the side of the road.
