HRM Today to get auctioned on eBay

OK this was a bit of a surprising news. The HR bloggers' network HRMToday is going on the block to get auctioned !

The community (disclaimer: I am a member too) is a great effort by Lance and Laurie with lots of support by other bloggers.

However I am wondering how my engagement would change depending on who finally gets the site after the auction.

Trust in a community of peers is very difficult to replicate - and any organization bidding for it might see engagement and maybe even membership dwindle. As the news says:

The eBay auction will last ten days and include http://hrmtoday.comhttp://blogs.hrmtoday.com, and http://network.hrmtoday.com, along with archived user data.

 Further disclaimer: I maintain a HR professionals' network on Ning too - but with much less functionality.
