When that many people tell you in one day to go see the movie, you go see the movie.
Besides Mike bet me a $100 dinner (the cost of ASP a year) in Boston at the next Software Industry Conference if joining ASP did not generate $1,000 in new startup/microISV consulting business for me between then and now.
Mike’s either very confident, or likes to bet dinners. From all the positive feedback I’ve gotten about ASP, I think the former.
Two aspects worth noting: ASP’s Code of Professional Conduct (= What happens in ASP, stays in ASP) means I won’t be able to report back here specifics of what’s going on there – but I do intend to see if the ASP’s forums live up to their rep – or collect on that dinner. Also, It’s a Good Thing ASP is a BizSpark Partner helping startups who want to Microsoftize. I am too, just to mention.
