Tips

Darren:
MIB Browser help make sense of SNMP MIB files and find the OID you need. Great free tool.
Sharon:

IBM innovation centres – all over the world, 2 in the UK for use via business partners or ISVs
Lisa

Other podcasts:  Taking Notes, the 1352 Report, Dogear Nation, Social Geeks and Get Social Do Business.  Also STS events.
Stuart:

LotusLive meetings app for iOS – works great.  But IBM must retire the old 7-digit Sametime Unyte meetings that are incompatible.  Also, needs to offer audio through the app too.
