The Reliability Success Discussion Forum

Okay so we built this forum on LinkedIn a while ago to try to provide a non-commercial environment where reliability practitioners could network and discuss themes that mattered to them. (Forum - The results have been astounding. I think this is down to three issues fundamentally:
  • No anonymous snipers!! Everyone in there has to display their name - but emails are hidden from spammers! So if you are going to state something you need to have the courage of your convictions. (Great stuff!)
  •  No commercial agenda! I do not want you to attend my "really great" conferences, buy my books, purchase my services or anything. I want you to network with each other! So as a result you say what you want, you talk about the themes that are important to you, and there will be no risks of "the owner" attacking you for disagreeing with their line. (No ads, no spam - nothing)
  • Freelance and positions wanted posts. Already the forum is filling with recruiters and companies who are looking for people with rare skills. The value of the forum is that you can immediately check their profiles to see their recommendations, their career history and to be able to contact them directly if you are interested. (Because this is LinkedIn hosted)

Some tips

If you want to join the group you can do so here, and the discussion forum is available here. When you join the forum, or if you are already a member, then you can set up your updates to receive daily or weekly digests of what is going on. (This is great to be able to see at a glance whether there are interesting job or contract offers, or to see what is being said about themes that interest you.) First click on your settings within the forum itself: Then choose your updates setting for this forum: This way you can stay on top of what is going on in your community, who is looking for what, and also get an idea of what some of our extremely experienced members are talking about.

And of course...the rules

Strict no Spam Policy. This is a networking GROUP, not an advertising site for YOU only. If you spam members with unwanted and unsolicited information about your products and services I will throw you out of the forum and "out" you to the members of the list. Professional not personal. Fact based discussion is welcome, opinion based personal attacks is not on! Please stick to the themes. Not a hard and fast rule.  Birthday wishes, comments on the election and other issues aren't what we are about unless there is a reliability angle of course. I think aside from that the goal is to enjoy it, develop contacts with others for mutual benefit, and hopefully it will help you to grow your own network. The network is probably the most vital element of any successful career. Good luck with yours. (Forum -

  • <p>Tried, regular visitors accept their favorites, but Vegas isn’t in support of loyalists. It’s for seekers of the hottest, the newest, the now. And lately, they want to be seen at the Cosmopolitan, where a vast chandelier conceals a three-story courtroom and casino cabanas overlook the Strip. So it’s no hit that the attention-grabbing Cosmopolitan gets more check-ins on Foursquare than any other casino in Vegas. The common site, which counts five million check-ins worldwide regular, reviewed its Vegas materials from August 2011 to August 2012 to demand us with this choice <a href="/">gry hazardowe</a> register of the most popular casinos in Immorality City. (After all, in spite of if what happens stays secret, half the diversion is letting all your friends know you’re in Vegas, baby.) Established hotels, too, are coming up with new reasons to block in, spending millions on upgrades like the sunlit high-limits job rooms at the Wynn Las Vegas (No. 14) or a breathe new life into of the 171,500-square-foot casino at MGM Renowned (No. 2). The biggest efforts go into the kinds of celeb-chef restaurants, retail stores, and extravaganza venues that increasingly away visitors’ publicity from gambling. Look pro the Hakkasan restaurant and lodge coming to MGM Palatial in 2013; four zip lines running between the Luxor pyramid and the Excalibur; a mammoth notice position at the Flamingo; and Gordon Ramsay’s leading Vegas restaurant. At the No. 7-ranked Venetian, a ambulatory sports betting app makes it easier than ever to gamble away from the casin</p>
