Article edit?

From the front page, you see the topic "Open Mesh Picks Up Where Meraki Left Off", and then 3 paragraphs all about Meraki, and nothing about Open Mesh until you actually open the article.

Nothing wrong with that... Meraki needs some negitive press.. I was highly active on the forums when all this was happening....They are non responsive to the forums and seem to care little about the customer.

That stood out to me too (also, the other day with another article). Intuitively you expect the initial paragraph or two to be about the headline, and then open it for more background. It stands out when it's opposite and you have to open it to get a summary about the headline.

Not complaining. It just isn't intuitive.

That's what happens when money gets involved and investors demand ROI. The "geeks" were forced to grow up.

I know there were many (including the WISP forum here) that prognosticated something like this happening to Meraki. Google isn't going to throw in millions without getting something back.

Yea heaven forbid they actually SERVE the customer.... Not SCREW the customer...

Hopefully open source will be the death of them..

A good business model/plan has a balance between serving and screwing. Meraki's fell too far in one direction.
