There are exceptions to this (you know who you are!), but in general, the rollout of Intel’s new internal blog infrastructure has been a mess. The new system was very obviously designed by a committee consisting of managers, lawyers, and people who had no idea what blogs were about, let alone being bloggers themselves.
As a result, we’re trying to clean up the mess, but it’s really disheartening, and frustrating. I’m considering giving up on internal blogging altogether, and just doing all of my Intel-related blogging here on TinyScreenfuls.
What other examples have you seen, where design by committee of people who don’t know or use the product has gone horribly wrong?
