So this morning I got an email message with the subject "Event notification for Mike Starr from IxDA" and the entire content was "A item to which you are subscribed has been updated" (not a link).
I have no idea what that item I'm subscribed to is. So I go to the website and since this was my first interaction with the website since the overhaul, I have to go through the whole process of requesting a password change since I did not previously have one. So 20 minutes later, I'm logged on to the website. Cool.
Now I try to find out what the hell that email message was talking about. As far as I can tell, there's no way on the website that I can find out.
One would think that the website (and associated email messages) of an organization of this nature wouldn't have made it impossible for me to track down what I'm looking for.
Of course, there's always the possibility that I'm completely clueless and completely missed the obvious.
