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.

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

Helping my friend the best I can. His story will move you.
Thu, May 8th 2014 6:14a David Hablewitz Brian Steele is my good friend and one of the best managers I have ever worked for. I remember the day when he quietly explained to me that they had just learned his son Cullen had Pulmonary Hypertension. I never heard of it before and asked “Is it bad?” “Yeah, it’s bad.” he said. Watch this video and learn Cullen’s story.
At the time Brian mentioned it, I didn’t fully appreciate what it all meant or the impact it would have on him and his fa [read] Keywords:
