Synergy with the Sessions
Ben Langhinrichs    

Perhaps not as exciting as Dancing with the Stars, but guaranteed to have less Bristol Palin, the Additional Resources tab generates some fascinating results.  While you are hardly going to be surprised to see the (very popular and highly anticipated) Mastering XPages: A Step-by-Step Guide to XPages Application Development and the XSP Language showing under the session AD111 Developing Mobile Apps Rapidly for Webkit Browsers Using XPages, you might be surprised to see John Wargo's very useful  BlackBerry Development Fundamentals or a couple of TLCC remote learning courses that might prove handy if you want to learn more or share XPage development training with colleagues who couldn't make it to Lotusphere.

In case you think my personal interest in development has skewed things, there are also interesting finds in places like SHOW202 Enterprise 2.0 Hero: A Beginner’s Guide to Installing IBM Lotus Connections 3.0, where along with the more predictable IBM Lotus Connections 2.5: Planning and Implementing Social Software for Your Enterprise and Understanding DB2(R): Learning Visually with Examples (2nd Edition), you also have the intriguing book, Web 2.0 and Social Networking for the Enterprise: Guidelines and Examples for Implementation and Management Within Your Organization.  It is so much fun, I am a bit tempted to shift this to the first tab so that people will see it more readily.

If fiction and free go together for you

For those who like short stories, and especially those who are have Amazon Prime or Kindle Unlimited memberships, I've enrolled my book of short stories so that they are free to borrow. (They're only $3.99 to buy, but I guess free is in beer can't be beat.) I'm not sure what countries have Amazon Prime (maybe the US and Canada?) and which have Kindle Unlimited (I think the US and UK so far). Five star ratings on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Smashwords. Enjoy! Amazon US: http://amzn.to/S [read] Keywords:

Animated flowchart tutorial - video editing technique
Thu, Sep 18th 2014 12:03p   Ben Langhinrichs
I had so much fun with the animated flowchart yesterday, I stayed up late last night making a brief tutorial, and then did some polishing over my lunch hour. I used Camtasia 8, but the technique is easily transferable (from what I can tell) to Adobe Premiere Pro or Final Cut Pro or any other professional level video editing software. The video is only two and a half minutes, but I think you'll find it interesting if you've ever wanted to do more with your videos. You can check out more details [read] Keywords: archive

Fun with quirky video techniques
Wed, Sep 17th 2014 10:52a   Ben Langhinrichs
I've been playing with some different techniques to show how CoexLinks Fidelity works compared with how IBM Notes/Domino works, and decided to mix up the flowcharts and demo. It's been interesting and fun, but I realized I could use a GIF (albeit, a large GIF - sorry for the bandwidth) to show the technique without forcing anybody to watch a whole video. I reduced a few of the effects and shrank this to 640x360 to fit the blog and keep the size somewhat reasonable. The actual video is in HD an [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes

Some like to go with the flow
Tue, Sep 16th 2014 8:06a   Ben Langhinrichs
My wife is an educator, and one of the concepts she tries to pound into my thick, unreceptive skull is that different people learn in different ways. Meaning that some people learn by reading a description, some people learn by watching a video, some people learn by diving in and trying without "bothering to RTFM". And yes, some people learn by reading a flow chart. Different strokes for different folks, or horses for courses as the British are said to say. In deference to those whose learnin [read] Keywords: google

Saving Grace - a different sort of haunted house story
Sat, Sep 13th 2014 6:46a   Ben Langhinrichs
My latest story video is up on Youtube on TheStoryTimeChannel, and I'l love to hear what you think. I tried a different approach as far as effects and all, but mostly I hope you enjoy the story, which was first published in a print anthology a few years ago and then in my short story collection, Savage Fire. Now you can listen to it free. If you enjoy, please give it the thumbs up. You can also subscribe so you hear about new stories as they come out. [read] Keywords:


Are videos like blog posts or like product pages?
Thu, Sep 11th 2014 7:26a   Ben Langhinrichs
Over the past year and a half, I've posted many videos on my primary Youtube channel (not to be confused with my new StoryTime channel). Many are tutorials on Gimp, Youtube and general topics, but there are also several that are product demos or product tutorials on Midas and CoexLinks Fidelity. These have been successful, but I face a new sort of issue I hope you can help me figure out. When a video grows out of date due to a new version or revised sample, should I create a new one that is up [read] Keywords: lsx notes sharepoint

Closed captions on videos - four reasons to add them
Fri, Sep 5th 2014 9:33a   Ben Langhinrichs
I've said it before and I'll probably say it again, if you are going to put out videos for an international audience (such as the Notes/Domino community), add closed captions. Youtube has made this easier and easier, though it is still a fairly time intensive and annoying process. But the value goes beyond providing access to the hearing impaired, though that is a good reason in and of itself. There are four advantages to using closed captions: 1) People who are hard of hearing or watching y [read] Keywords: domino notes community

Domino Blog to Wordpress - an Alan Birthday vlog
Wed, Sep 3rd 2014 6:33p   Ben Langhinrichs
A few days ago, Alan Lepofsky asked me a question on Twitter. I responded generally, but since it happens to be Alan's birthday today (Happy Birthday!), I thought I'd go to a little effort and make a birthday vlog of sorts showing exactly how this would work. The video is only 3 minutes long and demonstrates show some interesting new features in Export to CSV for Midas LSX 5.11. You can check out the exact field specifications at mini-lessons.info/MIDAS20. Best viewed in HD. Closed capti [read] Keywords: domino lsx twitter
