I recently received my membership renewal from SoTA. It is hard to support a phantom organization.
Has SoTA ceased to exist? It seems they do nothing anymore. Other than the wonderful Ampersands for Haiti project, they seem to be in a coma. Last year, the somewhat ho-hum TypeCon program was barely posted before the event and this year is no better. By now, everyone should know who the speakers are and what the conference will cost. A Professional organization should be run, well, professionally.
It takes a lot to get me to bitch on a public forum but sometimes only the squeaky wheel gets oiled.
