    Welcome to the big city – we're an enterprise customer, using DimDim as part of our social networking application for bio-pharma and I got this email this morning:

    While your Dimdim Enterprise service will remain fully operational during the life of your current contract, we will discontinue the service on the date the contract expires and will not be offering any renewals or extensions.

    So – this is either an opportunity to leverage a business partnership with or an opportunity to write off the investment customers made in DimDim integration.
