Recorded on Wednesday 4th April 2012.  Mat Newman joins us to review AusLUG 2012, and to discuss how we can reach those Lotus and ICS advocates and users that are not part of the community today.

Hosts

Stuart McIntyre (blog | twitter | company) & Darren Duke (blog | twitter | company)

Guests

Mat Newman (blog | twitter | company) is the Director of Education for ISW, an IBM Premier business partner in Australia, who recently won both IBM ICS and IBM Websphere ANZ Business partner of the year awards.  ISW are also the folks behind WildFire! and Kudos Badges.  An IBM Notes user since 1992, Mat is an IBM Champion for Collaboration Solutions, owner of the coolest YELLOW suit around, who by day educates Users, Administrators and Developers on IBM Software and spends his spare time keeping a bunch of people amused while they organise AusLUG.

Topics

AUSLUG is done

  • Was it easier or harder 2nd time around?
  • Biggest LUG in the world? (350 registrations)

So why do you do it?

  • the team behind AusLUG: Adrian Randall, Barry Sanders, John Stockbridge, Karen Hooper, Michael Little, Scott Beattie, Steve Hooper, Terry Boyd and Tony McPhail are all very single minded in this: We want to reach out to as many people as possible and provide an excellent opportunity for them to improve their skills and gain a better understanding of the technology they work with.
  • What’s this about the ‘bubble’?
  • Is our world really as small as 300 bloggers and maybe 1000 readers?
  • So how do we reach those outside the bubble?
  • Are LUGs the primary route, or are online activities like LinkedIn groups, Connections communities, Greenhouse, Facebook, Twitter etc as important?
  • Is the community still Notes/Domino focused, or are products like Connections and Quickr becoming more key?
  • How do we get more ‘outsiders’to have and use their voices?

Where do you go for AusLUG 2013?

Tips

Darren:

  • Right double click in iNotes closes the current tab. At least in 8.5.3…..

Mat:

  • Sametime clients for mobile devices – check out QuipIM?

Stuart:

Mike McGarel (blog | Twitter) , As a Collaborative Solutions Developer for Czarnowski Display Services, “XPages marks the spot”in my career right now. All of our new development efforts have been XPages-focused for over a year.  I am Vice President of GRANITE, the Chicago-based ICS user group.

Mike:

  • In the grand tradition of developers stealing borrowing from one other, I saw this site mentioned within a Planet Lotus blog post from Mark Roden: http://jsbeautifier.org/. It makes JavaScript code more readable by adding indents and line breaks.

Stuart:

  • Chrome with IBM Connections Files issue workaround. Great job, Sjaak!

Tips

Femke:

  • www.yoono.com great social stream tool to have as a desktop app but for me most particular to have in the sidebar of my browser (Firefox/Chrome). Handles FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Talk, MySpace, etc, etc. Even allows you to check in with 4square and do multi updates to all of those in one go if you want.

Sharon:

Stuart:

  • Time has come for all laptops/desktops to have mirrored disks, sick of recovering dead/corrupted drives.  DiskWarrior is worth its weight in gold 😉  Also AppleJack – install on every Mac *before* you have a problem.

Theo:

  • 2 useful iPhone apps: Tweetbot & i-nigma (=QR reader)

Mat:

  • Yes, it’s a Notes Tip 🙂 If you are compelled to let the world know your feelings on a piece of software dont just say ‘I hate …’Tell us what the problem is so we can help you!
  • Teamviewer Desktop for Mac/Linux/Win and apps for iOS and Android, remote control any computer with a http connection on port 80.

Topics

xpages portable command guideThe XPages Portable Command Guide

  • (Amazon US Paperback | Amazon US Kindle | Amazon UK Paperback | Amazon UK Kindle)
  • Follow on to the magnificent Mastering XPages
  • How did Maire and Dan get involved?
  • What does it cover?
  • Do you get stopped in corridors?
  • If one was new to XPages, would you still read ‘Mastering Xpages’first?
  • Who is it for?
  • Available in what formats?
  • Does it cover the extension library as well?
    • No, but new book coming from Paul Hannan, Tim Tripcony, Paul Withers et al in April

Meet the Authors video:

  • How did this come about?
  • Do you think it will help sales of the book?

Where are we with XPages?

  • Has it now completely replaced ‘classic’development techniques?
  • Are we seeing some leading-edge apps written with it yet?
  • What is IBM developing in XPages internally? Any great use cases you can share?
  • How do you feel about the vitality around XPages now that it’s a toddler 😉

Andrew Pollack’s “Delving into XPages”post

  • Lots of comments
  • Is he right? Is documentation inside of the product lacking?

From the TweetBag:

  • From Steve Pitcher, “What does the major lack of Quickr sesions at LS12 indicate?”
  • From Keith Brooks, “If not yellow, which color will ICS be?”

Tips

Darren:

  • Watch out when deploying Symantec Endpoint Protection with Notes preloader in 8.5.2 and later. It seems to be SEP 11.0.7 and higher but don’t take my word on that. Basically it crashes Notes at log on and the only fix (so far) is here. So far the issue seems random (not all PC’s are affected), but YMMV.

Martin:

  • Get on OpenNTF.org and try our latest stuff as a habit – whenever you can. Give us early feedback, and contribute where you can …it’s a great chance to influence XPages futures!

[Once again, Darren and I recorded a live TWiL from the hallowed rooms of WDW Dolphin during Lotusphere. This year we were not lucky enough to have been supplied with a room with a PA and roving mics, so the audio is by no means perfect, but the conversation makes it very worthwhile.  We had fun recording the show, I hope you enjoy listening just as much!]

* What does it cover?
* Does the cloud change things?
* Should IT be allowed to own the collaboration strategy/roadmap?
* Who should read the book? Is it aimed at IT folks, or should it be head of comms, LoB, execs etc?
* Foreword by Ed Brill – how did that come about?
* How does this book fit with User Adoption Strategies?

* Why does user adoption need a strategy?
* Do organisations still think ‘build it and it will come’?

Tips
Darren:
If you’re going to upgrade firmware on a new SSD, you’ll need another machine to do it on.
Michael:
‘All it takes is to be smart enough to figure out what to do, and also to be dumb enough to get up every day to do it.’ In 2012, be dumber!
Stuart:
Get your execs and managers to Connect 2012 – promises to be a cracking event. Still time to register for Social Connections II as well.
Know that Michael journals every day, recommend Day One – app for Mac and iOS.

Ronnie Maffa (twitter) is Vice President in Social Software Development at IBM.  Ronnie is responsible for the development of IBM Connections, Lotus Quickr, LotusLive Connections and Engage products.



Ethan Perry ( linkedin | twitter) is a Senior Product Designer, leading the LotusLive and IBM Connections User Experience teams. Ethan has also designed the user interface for IBM application development tools. Before joining IBM, Ethan was a researcher at the MIT Media Lab in the Sociable Media Group.



Topics
Design versus Development

* How do the two teams interact and work together?
* How do you ensure that Design create UIs that are possible to develop in a reliable and manageable way?

Project Vulcan

* What is the purpose of the Vulcan vision?
* How did it come about?
* Will there be more Vulcan content at Lotusphere 2012?

Design

* How does Project Vulcan get implemented in LotusLive?
* How does design for the Enterprise differ from design for the public web?
* What does that do to customer expectations on release schedules?
* One of the strengths of the latest Connections release is the ease of customising the UI (compared to say Sametime or Quickr).  Are there plans to continue this trend?
* Are there any plans to bring new design concepts to admin UIs as well? (e.g. WebSphere/Connections admin UIs)

Futures

* The Connections iPad application was really well done.  What other plans does IBM have to move their mobile, web, and rich clients into the area where their competitors just look weak?
* Mobile – What next?

Tips
Darren:
Cardstar iPhone, Android and BlackBerry app. Keep all those “Loyalty cards”used for discounts all in one place. Simply photograph the barcode on the card, this is then recreated on the device. When you shop and have to scan the card, simply have scan the barcode on your device. Great if your wife keeps all the cards 😉 (fantastic idea! SM)
Ethan:
In Connections 3 you can filter the news feed by following tags to see all content in your organization that was tagged with a particular keyword. Go to the Home page, click the little twisty next to News Feed, and select Tags.
Ronnie:
I am quite fond of just about every features we have added to IBM Connections 3, two that I rely on to keep me current with my social networks is following and email digest.  I use “following”to keep a short list of things that I need to stay current on,  and the “daily digest”to give me one place to quickly check in on what is happeni...]]>

Sandy Carter (blog | twitter) is a recognized leader in social business, a best selling author, and one of the most influential women in Web 2.0 technology.  As IBM Vice President, Social Business Evangelism and Sales, she is responsible for setting the direction for IBM’s Social Business initiative, a $200B market opportunity. Her numerous industry awards include: “Brand Leader of the Year” from the World Brand Congress, “Top 10 Women in Social Media” from Altimeter Group and Fast Company’s “Most Influential Women in Technology.” She is an avid social business evangelist, blogger, and twitterer. She holds an MBA from Harvard and a Bachelor of Science degree in math and computer science from Duke University.



Topics
Introduction

* VP of Social Business Evangelism – What exactly does that mean?
* What have been your highlights of the first year in the job?
* How have you found it – specifically interaction with the community?

The book

* Why did you write the book?
* Why ‘Get Bold’?
* Is the timing right?
* Who should read the book?

The AGENDA methodology

* Can you outline the key elements in the AGENDA methodology? How did this come about?
* How essential is it to have the ‘right’culture in place?
* In the section on Gain Social trust, you write extensively on building relationships – what approaches would you recommend considering ‘internal’social compared with ‘external social’?
* How does engagement work for B2B organisations?
* “Business processes are the ‘soul’of your company – to truly be a Social Business, you must embed social into your soul.’ Is that the key, that an organisation needs to add social into their business, not try to change the business into a social business?
* You mention 48 hours being too long to respond in a social world, does that mean businesses must plan for every eventuality before they engage in social to ensure they are able to handle any situation that arises?
* What does ‘Return on Everything’mean?  Have businesses accepted this, versus a strictly financial ROI analysis?
* Recognition of audience feedback during LS11 OGS – what part has this played in the organisation of this year’s conference?
* Much of the focus of the book is on external social business, yet IBM’s most well known solution of Social Business is primarily an internal tool (IBM Connections).  What can internal social offer the business? How ‘big’does a business need to be before it needs to or can get social internally?

Future of email

* Phil Salm wrote an excellent blog post earlier this week that pointed out the obvious and gained a lot of attention – Email is still ubiquitous, by pushing Social,]]>

Paul Hobson (blog | twitter | company) is an innocent bystander. Former Glaciologist and Earth Observation Scientist who fell in to a world of IT through a single Sunday afternoon installing Slackware from 80 3.5”floppies. Also, he does Enterprise Architecture stuff on occasion.



Rob Novak (blog | twitter | company) is President of SNAPPS, an Advanced IBM Partner for 14 years providing products, services, hosting, and business process consulting in the collaboration, enterprise content management, mobilization and business intelligence markets. We’re known for doing Quickr work like customization, support, and templates, although that’s really about 1/4 of what we do – lately we’ve been doing Notes client sidebar apps, working with iPhones and iPads, XPages, the works. Everyone on staff is a 15-20 year Lotus nut. We just did announce our first paid product in seven years (since we tend to give everything else away), some modules for Quickr that really enhance the user experience. Rob has 3.99 business degrees, has spoken at most of the industry conferences and user groups on both technical and business topics, and last but not least we – meaning SNAPPS with the amazing co-producers the Turtles in London – produce Collaboration University.



Topics
Paul has moved away from a big IBM customer to one that is more MS-centric

* As Director, Enterprise Architecture at a major Canadian Uni, how do you see the social/collaboration landscape?
* What does an Director of Enterprise Architecture actually do?
* Do IBM products such as Connections and Quickr fit into the category of Enterprise Architecture, or it just large software platforms such as WebSphere, MQ and Portal?
* From the outside, in academia the perception seems to be that free (e.g. Google) wins over paid (IBM) is that always true?
* In your opinion, are large organisations (commercial and academic) getting into Social?

IBM’s focus is on Social Business (and thus Connections?) 

* Does Lotus Quickr count as Social Business software?
* How about QuickrJ versus QuickrD?
* What are the use cases where Quickr is a winner?
* New products from SNAPPS?
* Moving back to having the option of ActiveX in new fixpack – how do we feel about this?

Notes/Domino 8.5.3 Release Date set 

* October 4th via Ed Brill
* LotusUserGroup webcast
* However indications that there will be licensing changes and new XWork Server license.

For the one man or small IT shops it is a real pain when the power goes out as you don’t know about it. Well most higher end UPSes have SNMP card slots. These cards are about $250 each but can be set upi to email you when the UPS goes on to battery (and lots of other things). We have “plumbed”Nagios into it and use SNMP to also provide visibility into the state of the UPSes.]]>

Topics
Social Business/Social Collaboration/Enterprise 2.0, where are we at?

* For those coming from an email/IM-centric collaboration background, Social Business may still be a new vision, not well understood, or even something that is against the culture of the organisation
* How well are customers understanding Social Business principles?
* What are the challenges to purchasing, implementation and deployment?

On-premise versus cloud/SaaS

* We are seeing a focus on the cloud by most major vendors, whether full multi-tenant SaaS, private cloud, hosted appliance, PaaS or hybrid – lots of different business/technical models…
* How do we see this panning out?  Is there still a place for on-premise(s) IT (particularly collaboration)?

Topics
Websphere Portlet Factory re-branded as Web Experience Factory

* New release – IBM Web Experience Factory 7.0.1 helps deliver fast, simple development of enterprise multichannel applications for exceptional web experiences
* Does a company need to be large to utilise WAS/Portal?
* So is this a sign that WebSphere products are getting rebranded as well?
* Doesn’t Portlet Factory sit in the Lotus brand too? At least from a WPLC/ICS perspective?

MWLUG (Midwest Lotus User Group Conference)

* Dates: August 24-26, 2011
* Place: Sheraton Milwaukee Brookfield Hotel, Brookfield, Wisconsin (near Milwaukee)
* Plan to have an XPages track like there was last year

XPrize Design Competition

* Contestants build an XPages application based on one of the old Nifty Fifty templates from the R3/R4 days
* Contest is Richard Moy’s idea — I added the templates idea
* Limited to subset of nine templates to make the judges job easier
* We have six judges total, from both inside and outside the Lotus community
* We encourage particpants to submit their entry to OpenNTF.org when the contest is over
* You can use custom controls from this XPrize contest for the current OpenNTF contest

The community call

* How did the call meet the expectations of the attendees?
* Changes in title of the webcast, was this wise? Created expectations that wouldn’t be met?
* How do we take this new Social Business message to customers and executives in a way that makes sense of the Notes/Domino/Lotus heritage?


Tips:
Darren:
GPS Location by Acceleroto for the iPhone. This thing is scarily accurate.
Mike:
Android phone app called Juice Defender which saves battery life. There are free and pay versions. I’m using the free version and it seems to be helping.
Stuart:
Alfred – great replacement for Quicksilver as task launcher on Mac. Free on Mac App Store, Lion ready.  Also, get free retakes on IBM certification exams

Joyce Davis : (personal twitter | company twitter | company blog) I’m community manager for IBM in the Collaboration Solutions or “Lotus”division. I’ve “bled yellow”since 1983 when I used Lotus 1-2-3 version 1A for DOS to manage the WW Technical Education course schedule as an IBM co-op. (I was an infant, of course.) I joined Lotus full-time in 1993. I have a degree from Univ. of Texas in Sociology. All those who questioned the value of my degree can now SUCK IT thanks to the social business movement! 🙂 I’ve worked in MANY different roles at IBM over the last 18 years including technical support, people management, project management, communications, program management and now community management. I’m a mom, wife, flutist, Apple fangirl, and social network addict. Although I wasn’t born in Austin, I got here as fast as I could about 35 years ago. (I figure rather than go into detail on my job role, I’ll just answer that when you ask me about it.)

Scott began his career at Lotus in 1989 as part of the original team focused on developing and selling the Lotus Notes product.



Topics
Utility Server for LotusLive Notes launch – announcement, Ed’s blog post, Stuart’s blog post

* What is it?
* Who’s the offering for? Why limit it to LotusLive Notes customers?
* Is this ‘private cloud’or ‘shared cloud’? Does it matter?
* How is it licensed – PVUs? How is this calculated for Amazon etc?
* A customer is likely to already have Domino Enterprise, CEO or Domino Collaboration Express licensing.  How do they transition to this offering?
* How much control does a customer have over their apps? ACLs, signing, port access etc?
* Is client access allowed?
* As new releases of Domino (e.g. 8.5.3) ship, when will the service get upgraded?

* What if the app needs to stay on an older version?
* How does the customer test their app prior to upgrade?


* Is pricing available yet? (New licence $205 US – tradeup $102.5 US)
* What comes next?

Connections 3.0.1 on the Greenhouse

* Available now
* Lots of shiny new stuff – ideation blogs, photo and video sharing in communities, support for Oracle 11g and SQL Server 2008
* Now called IBM Connections
* Seems much faster loading than before on Greenhouse

Web Content Management (WCM) renamed again

* Loses the Lotus tag, as does Connections when 3.0.1 ships
* What should Notes Next be called?  IBM Streams? 😉

iNotes and FireFox 4

* Gregg Eldred links to the “new”technote indicating a 8.5.2 FP2 targeted hotfix is coming
* Should IBM be expected to support new browsers at browser release time?
* Surely if anyone in the iNotes team had tested FF4 they would have seen the issue and headed off a bit of a YPR (Yellow Public Relations) dust up

What is the format of your events, days/numbers?
What are the benefits of attending?

to attendees?
to sponsors/exhibitors?
to speakers


Shouldn’t IBM be responsible for running these events?

BLUG

When is it? (March 31th – April 1st)
Where? (Crowne Plaza In Antwerp, we needed a bigger venue, as we grew: more than 200 people per day)
Why Antwerp this time? (Great city, we wanted to a change from Brussels)
Now a two-day event – why the change? (so many topics to cover, and we had to turn down too many excellent speakers last time)
Who is speaking? (70% international Lotusphere speakers)

UKLUG

When is it? (23rd-24th May)
Where? (Manchester Museum of Science and Industry)
What is planned? (2 days of conference sessions with a fantastic line-up of speakers)
What are you looking for in session abstracts?

The future of LUGs

Are more user groups required around the world?
If someone wants to organise a new one, where do they start?
How do you get the word out?
Does the move to Social Business change anything?

* What happens when you criticise companies?

Social/Collaboration in 2011

* Cloud seems to be the big thing, at least according to Microsoft 😉
* Isn’t everything cyclical?

Lotusphere 2011 / IBM Social Business 

* What did you think of IBM’s Social Business rebranding effort at LS11?
* James, you’ve been vocal about the importance of developers to the brand.  Can you explain why you think this?
* The social collaboration and mobile market both are very consumer-driven at present – does IBM need to market to consumers?
* How well does LotusLive now stand as a cloud-based alternative to the on-premise Lotus portfolio?
* IBM seems to be deprecating the Lotus brand – is this a good move?

If you get a new iShiny device, be sure to have your fingerprints surgically removed. And why should my iShiny make me enter a credit card to download free apps.

Topics
UX Design at IBM 

* What does Chris’ role as ‘Director, User Experience and Information Development, Collaboration Solutions’entail?

* Do you manage a team?
* Who is part of that team?


* User Experience AND Information Development.

* Why the two roles combined?  Are the intersections between their work?


* Will IBM continue to offer offline documentation?
* Do you manage design for web-based, client and mobile?  Does that bring challenges?
* What are the goals and main focus areas in 2011?

* ‘This year, our focus is on: user adoption, consistency and integration.’


* We keep on hearing about OneUI.  Can you talk to what OneUI is?
* Whilst the UI is similar cross the products, the process of customising the UI is very different (thinking of Quickr, Connections, Sametime, iNotes etc.).  Are there any plans to make this easier and more standardised? (Stuart)

* Where do you see the future interface of the traditional desktop client given the OneUi approach for the browser based clients
* We’ve seen a huge growth in mobile ‘Smart”devices based on simplified design, which has come at a functionality cost (Apple iOS sans Tasks) how hard do you find the trade off between usability and functionality


* Has anyone looked at what features are turned on by default?
* What other vendors do you look at and envy?
* I would love for you and your people to come out to an Exchange to Notes migration and listen to the users 😉
* Mac is a big topic today.
* Does developing for the Mac lead to different design decisions to Windows-development?
* How do you combine that with OneUI standards
* As IBM adopts Social Business, users will look for design clues from consumer social sites such as Twitter and Facebook.  These sites evolve fast with almost weekly changes.  Can IBM keep up?  Indeed, should it try to?
* With the drive for continued improvement do you see the continuation of the point.point release of new features and functionality that we’ve seen in the last year or so?

Looking back at Lotusphere 2011 

* Overall reflections on the conference, how did it rate?
* Branding change (Lotus possibly being deprecated) – lots of posts on the topic:

* Ed Brill – Lotusphere 2011: 100 percent IBM and loving it
* Alan Lepofsky – Lotus Is Finally A Key Part Of IBM
* Vowe – Are we feeling all excited yet?
* Stuart – Lotus is dead. Long live IBM.


* Will this cause confusion in the marketplace? Customers feel Lotus is dead etc?
* Jon, as a IBM sales guy and former Websphere dude, does it matter?  How about from an IBM sales perspective, do you ‘lead blue’?
* How will you explain the messages of Lotusphere to your customer base and sales teams?

‘Social Business’- ‘Get Social. Do Business’as a theme 

* Did attendees/customers/press get this?  Is there a sense that IBM is leading the field (and the conversation) now?

* Kathy Brown – Lotusphere 2011 – Anti-Social?


* What does this mean for traditional Lotus partners? Will this lead to a new tier of business partners that can lead the Social Business message?

Looking forward: 

* Did you get a sense for what’s coming in the ‘Next’versions of the product?  Is this Project Vulcan being realised?
* Will Activity Streams become ubiquitous?
* Is the future all web based? Will there be a place for desktop apps still? How about native mobile apps?
* What will LotusLive Symphony bring us?  Is it a big threat to Google Apps?  Was pricing discussed?

* LotusLive Symphony first look
* Will this be IBM moving into a Fremium model?
* Will it be available on-premise?



Success of XPages book – Mastering XPages 

* Ed Brill – ‘Well, they sold out at Lotusphere.  First time ever, from what I heard.  More than any other IBM Press book at an IBM conference.  None of this surprises me, because learning XPages is the single most-important activity you can undertake if you want to be on top of the game in building Domino applications.’
* Still a real appetite for Lotus books and hard copy publications – Lotus Redbooks?

Social Business Jam 

* Have you partaken?

Domino Express Changes 

* All limitations besides customer size to be removed in 8.5.3

Topics
A two-part episode, first a 20-minute interview with Sandy Carter.  We covered:
New role at IBM – VP IBM Social Business and Social Solutions Sales and Evangelism

‘IBM Social Business and Social Solutions’?  Can you describe what this includes?   
Sales and Evangelism?  Wow thats a tough combination…

Unusual to see a VP focused on Evangelism?  Will you continue to blog and tweet in the new role?
Lotus has seen a good long run of quarterly growth, then a few quarters that have been tough in a generally low market.  How do you see 2011 going? (will not ask you directly about Q4 figures, if you want to mention them then great…)
Will we see the yellow boxing gloves return? 😉 (i.e. will you look to take the fight to the competition)


Previously (before your role with partners) you were VP  Websphere.  What differences have you found coming across to Lotus?
Have you been surprised by the ‘community’aspect of Lotus, or are there similar communities around the other IBM brands?

Lotusphere 2011

What are your expectations for Lotusphere 2011?
Are you speaking at the OGS or other sessions?
Looking forward, If you had a message for the Lotus community as we get into 2011, what would it be?

We then spoke to Kathy and Paul, covering:
IBM/Lotus Q4 results

IBM up 16%, WebSphere up 32%, Lotus down 3%

Lotusphere 2011

Lotusphere 2011 Online now online

Combination of Connections, XPages (using Extension Library?)
XPages Mobile controls look great!

Topics
IBM could be bigger than Facebook – Luis Benitez post 

* Fast Company article ‘Fathoming a new product from IBM via a launch event is like trying to understand the ocean by watching a wave. Nonetheless that was my task, swimming through the presentations and ultimately landing an interview with Jeffrey Schick, IBM’s VP of Social Software. Drenched in the vision Schick shared for the IBM Customer Experience Suite, it occurred to me that IBM could end up being more important to the business use and monetization of social media than Facebook.’
* ‘Long before Mark Zuckerberg aggregated his Harvard friends online, IBM’ers could find their colleagues in a similar manner. According to Schick, “at IBM 15 years ago, we had a way to look up people to create a globally connected enterprise.” “Today we have approximately 500,000 people within IBM and we do about 6 million look ups a day on pages that look strikingly similar to other social network profile pages with features like blogging and photo posting,” added Schick.’
* What does the article mean? Is IBM cool now? 😉

Jon Mell is back at IBM 

* From Headshift to be North IOT Sales lead for Portal, Connections etc.
* First notable name to rejoin IBM/Lotus after lots of folks have left (Alan Lepofsky, Gia Lyons, Rocky Oliver, Bob Balaban etc)
* Does IBM need to hire more big industry names?

Luis also has a new role – moving into product management 

* What prompted the change?
* What did you learn from doing it in the real world that will now help in product management?
* There’s a few IBM social software product managers, where will you fit?

Sametime ExtST service 

* What is it?  http://ibm.com/collaboration is a site on ibm.com through which people can access many ways to collaborate with IBMers.  Within that service, there is a pilot of a way to Sametime with IBMers.  Today, it is an as-is service with minimal support.  Soon,]]>

Tips
Darren: Ubuntu Netbook Edition – try it on your Netbook without erasing your existing OS. Much, much faster than Windows and very nice to boot. Lisa has been running it (and Lotus Notes) on her Lenovo S10e for over a year!
Rob: Parroting one of Stuart’s pet peeves – ‘move the themes to the server’in Connections. Just got through with a heartburn-inducing project, and couldn’t customize the footer in Connections no matter what I tried. Followed Stuart’s oft-shared advice to move ‘em to the server – worked like a charm …
David: Use Multitail to monitor logs etc. in parallel in the same window; avoids windows, windows, everywhere – very useful when trying to watch a product installation e.g. WebSphere Portal, which has lots of logs. On Ubuntu,]]>

Topics
LotusLive Notes

* Announced on Tuesday, available from August 24th
* What’s the announcement all about?
* Why did IBM feel that putting Domino/Notes into the cloud was important?
* Notes is now part of the overall LotusLive suite. Is that just branding, or is there real integration there?
* Ed said in his post “Today’s announcement marks the clear establishment of LotusLive as the leader in cloud collaboration.”That’s a pretty bold statement to make, suggesting you feel very sure that the announcement takes Lotus beyond the capabilities that Microsoft and Google offer – is that the case?
* There has been a lot of talk of ‘hybrid’SaaS and on-premise platforms for collaboration (‘click to cloud’etc.). Obviously a lot of target customers for LotusLive Notes will already have Domino infrastructure, how will go about shifting from on-premise to cloud, or even maintain a hybrid solution?
* What about apps?
* Is customisation allowed?
* What will Lotus be doing to make both owning and managing hybrid infrastructures easier?
* Instant Messaging – dedicated or shared?
* What are the costs? How does a customer buy it?
* Opening out:

* Apart from Ed, we are Lotus business partners that have customers with on-premise environments, or work in customer on-premise environments
