Many of you may know Chris Martin who co-presneted the “Social Business Super Hero” session with me at Lotusphere 2011.

Ars Technica: What’s the difference between college-level and corporate programming? |
Mon, Dec 2nd 2013 6:40p Bruce Elgort
This article strikes home as I am now completing my first year being a college instructor who teaches computer programming:
When they graduate and get their first job, a lot of students feel like they don’t really know how to program even though they may have been good programmers in college.
What are some of the differences between programming in an academic setting and programming in the ‘real world’?

I wanted to take this opportunity to personally thank IBM’s Joyce Davis for her tenure as the IBM Collaboration Solutions Community Manager. I have learned so many things from Joyce over the years that it would be impossible to list them all however, the one thing that I have learned from her more than anything is to always look at the bright side of an issue or a person. Always focus on the overall good, rather than a moment of dissatisfaction.
Being a community manager can’t be an [read] Keywords: collaboration

We’re excited to share Prime Air — something the team has been working on in our next generation R&D lab.
The goal of this new delivery system is to get packages into customers’ hands in 30 minutes or less using unmanned aerial vehicles.

CIO.com: IBM Will Beat Amazon Web Services Because Process Beats Product |
Sun, Dec 1st 2013 11:47a Bruce Elgort
With all of the AWS projects I have been involved with lately, I found this article quite interesting:
IBM will eventually beat Amazon Web Services, writes CIO.com columnist Rob Enderle, but not because AWS has an inferior product. In many ways, AWS is better than IBM’s cloud offering. But Big Blue’s experience with enterprise customers, not to mention the federal government, shows that great businesses processes often beat great products.
