[[H]ardOCP] Goodbye HardOCP - Hello Intel

Effective April 1, 2019 I will be taking on the position of Director of Enthusiast Engagement for Intel’s Technology Leadership Marketing group. Intel wants to reconnect with the top of the high-performance consumer pyramid which contains hardware enthusiasts, overclockers, gamers, and content creators. This is the part of our community that has great influence through word of mouth and online engagement. I’ll be focusing on helping Intel get back in touch with this audience and re-establishing a voice and dialog on where the company is going with its future technologies. If you are reading this, you are very likely already part of this group.

You have likely read about Intel beginning to take a more open and transparent approach lately in the press. You’ve also likely seen more interviews with Raja Koduri, Jim Keller, Murthy Renduchintala and other Intel technologists along with increased interaction on Twitter. While all of this is encouraging, I think there is even more opportunity to take a hands-on approach with enthusiasts. This is where I come in, along with the people and resources of Intel.

HardOCP.com will also become inactive.

Tens of people will be affected by this!

It'll be hard (no pun intended) for a tech forum to continue to succeed without a front page writing articles/reviews. I saw it 1st hand at Icrontic/Short-Media when MediaMan stopped writing. Publishing articles/reviews gathers clicks/income and with it new members. Without that people go other forums. It's by no means guaranteed but there's a very good chance that membership will steadily drop. Maybe he saw what happened to OCN after its sale but mothballing the front page is a mistake IMO.

So in less than a month I won't be able to login over there with my existing account? I'll even tell you my screen name over there, it's InaDaise. My posts over there are so non controversial it won't even matter if anyone knows my user name at HardOCP. Ok the remaining 99 people affected by their closing can reply. Actually I'm a bit partial, I may miss it to some degree.

Not even a very believable one at that.

It's not an April Fools joke. The ink is dry.

Can't really say I'm upset.

I think Intel got tired of the red colors everywhere over there.

I'll believe it when I see it.
