As shared with the Medical Devices Group today, July 17, 2018.
LinkedIn will destroy this group once and for all.
IF YOU VALUE THIS GROUP, even a little, you need to act today and join my mailing list.
Please visit this address now: https://medgroup.biz/stay.
IT MAY BE THE ONLY WAY I CAN TALK WITH YOU IN THE FUTURE. And no, this isn’t histrionics, spam, or phishing (as some inquired today).
WHAT THE F**K?
NO MORE ANNOUNCEMENTS
Did you know you can pay someone to spam LinkedIn?
Remarkably, here’s evidence. An exchange I had with a spammer neither I nor “Customer Service” could figure out how to delete. (I finally did, after multiple attempts.) 🙄
We are in trouble.
WHICH IS WORSE?
(b) Losing the ability to protect you from spam.
Either way, the Medical Devices Group Will Be Destroyed.
TIME TO GIVE UP?
You and I have spent too much time building this community.
HERE’S THE PLAN
2) I just set aside $10,000 to completely update https://MedicalDevicesGroup.net. My “Nice to do one day” just became “must do now.”
3) Our in-person 10x meetings just became more important. For now, I will host three:
– 10x for ENGINEERS (this October) at https://medgroup.biz/10x
– 10x for SALES and MARKETING (January, probably Orlando)
– The 10x Medical Device Conference (May, San Diego)
4) I just set aside another $1,000 to completely update https://MedicalDeviceEvents.com. It will support 10x events and have a true Medical Device Events calendar that features every single live medical device event I discover. Bookmark it. Request a brochure to get on that mailing list too.
I’m out of space.
If you want to help, my email is [email protected].
☹️ Sad day for us. ☹️

From a business standpoint, it is a snare and a delusion to pump the user base without associated demographics that support the generation of advertising revenues. I believe strongly in closed, actively moderated groups as offering a valuable contribution to developing a loyal, stable user base. But nobody says they are a silver bullet. What I can tell you, however, is that robo-moderation and un-moderated groups have proven to be complete failures. One reason is that they lack differentiation from the general feed. Cheers!
