In a quick post before bedtime (I’m still on PST, so I can’t sleep yet), It was quite an adventure to get here, but I finally made it to Lotusphere 2011. In less than 5 hours I’ve managed to meet up with many dozens of friends and associates, some for the first time face-to-face. For all the fantastic knowledge to be gained from the sessions at this event, I always find it’s really the social aspects of the conference that make the difference. To me, if you distilled the conference down to its essence, it’s all about the connections between people that make it worth the price for admission. Ironically, that part is free.
Since this is all about social software, and growing connections, I would like to invite you to post a quick response about why you are at Lotusphere 2011 (or why you are not here). Don’t be shy. You can even post anonymously if you choose. Also, please be sure to find me and shake hands and share a business card and a word with me. Follow me on twitter @davehabz to get the latest on where I am hanging out. Also check here for a post and when in doubt, look for me around the fountain.
Witness to a Murder
Sun, Sep 21st 2014 11:14p David Hablewitz Taking a diversion from the usual technology-related topic to share a bit of what most people will never see, Sunday morning, 5:30 AM, the first day of Fall, 2014. My internal alarm clock wakes me up. It is still quite dark outside. Charlie, our rooster hasn’t even woken up yet. That reminds me of something […] [read] Keywords:
How Your Learning Mindset Can Cost Your Job (and how to avoid it)
Mon, Sep 1st 2014 6:13a David Hablewitz It’s Labor Day (U.S. Holiday) A great day to write about work. If you work in a computer-related profession you can never stop learning if you wish to remain employed. And that trend is spreading across professions like wildfire as the benefits of technology influence almost every profession. But not everyone is cut out for a lifetime of success through learning. In a recent article published by Salman Khan, the creator of KhanAcademy.org, he wrote about Learning Mindsets:

How to get Sametime Video Chat in SmartCloud
Sun, Aug 24th 2014 11:12p David Hablewitz The maintenance window is over and SmartCloud Sametime chat now includes audio and video. Some details to know:
First, the feature is accessible only via a browser or via the mobile app. It is not available in the Notes embedded client (yet). Also, all parties in the chat must be logged into SmartCloud. That makes sense. If they weren’t, you couldn’t chat with them either.
Once logged into https://collabserv.com website, logged into Sametime, open your contacts list. You wi [read] Keywords: notes
New easy way to get your IBM software downloads via SmartCloud!
Tue, Aug 12th 2014 4:14p David Hablewitz OK, you’ve seen my article giving a detailed review about how bad Passport Advantage website was for many years. It took awhile to get fixed. But for the most part, much of that has improved dramatically since – and at least partially because of – that article. But downloads are still a bit of a pain. That is, until now!
If you subscribe to SmartCloud Notes, you can get to your downloads in Passport Advantage directly from the Apps – Downloads and Setup menu. It [read] Keywords: ibm
