Frequently asked questions about Community

  • "Are meetings recorded?"

    To preserve confidentiality of meeting participants, Community sessions are only recorded to allow us to capture the relevant discussion points. Chatham House rule applies to all Community sessions. Because sessions are conducted on a confidential basis, identifying information about participants is removed from any content produced.

  • "If I miss a meeting but am interested in the content, what are my options for getting the insight?"

    Following a Community session, appropriate content is produced and made available within the Jinfo Subscription. This can be in the form of an article, report or recorded webinar. Keep up-to-date on the latest content through our Newsletter, YouTube channel, or LinkedIn. Because sessions are conducted on a confidential basis, identifying information about participants is removed from any content produced.

  • "What level of detail do discussions achieve?"

    Because these are confidential, research-based discussions, Community sessions achieve a significant level of detail. Participants discuss specific vendors, products, solutions and challenges. Members of the group offer frank advice and perspective to each other, to address common challenges.

  • "Do participants feel comfortable revealing sensitive information?"

    Yes, we are very careful to create a trusting, confidential environment, in which participants can feel comfortable sharing sensitive information, such as experiences with vendors, emerging challenges and opportunities around information strategy, and other topics.

  • "How do I get access to Community sessions?"

    Community sessions are included in a Jinfo Subscription. If you're not sure if you have access, or if you'd like to discuss access, please contact us.

  • "How do I learn what sessions are coming up?"

    The Jinfo Newsletter and Jinfo Blog announce upcoming sessions. The Community landing page always has the most updated information on schedule and topic.

Our story

Jinfo was founded in 1997 by an information scientist with a business information background.

Jinfo was originally called "FreePint", because it was a free email newsletter for People Interested in Net Technologies. Hence the name "FreePint".

The offer of a 'free pint' proved a popular name, with rapid growth in circulation of the newsletter.

With research at its heart, FreePint developed a wider remit to look at information strategy and the re-invention of information services through the sharing of best practice.

Due to a focus on strategy, "FreePint" changed its name in 2016 to "Jinfo".

The Jinfo team has grown into a large network of information professionals globally.
