Social Media 101: Social Media Disasters (be careful with that keyboard, it’s loaded)
David (The Notes Guy In Seattle)    

Taking a brief break from my break from discussing Social Media to post about this good slide deck from IBM about Social Media and how NOT to use it.  The presentation sites more than a dozen examples of how companies have blundered on the web, but my favorite is definitely Ryanair’s press release stating “Ryanair can confirm that a Ryanair staff member did engage in a blog discussion.  It is Ryanair policy not to waste time and energy in corresponding with idiot bloggers and Ryanair can confirm that it won’t be happening again.  Lunatic bloggers can have the blogosphere all to themselves as our people are far too busy driving down the cost of air travel.”

It describes some etiquette in using social media as a business, but these rules also apply to us as individuals.  I mention this in response to observing individuals engage in a social media personal assault.

With any form of broadcast communications (media), you should be sensitive to your audience.  But with social media, it is even more important because of the broad reach one person can have and the permanence it has.  With social media an individual can broadcast their message as widely as a fortune 500 company with a huge marketing budget, and once posted, it cannot be fully removed.  It’s a loaded gun.  There is no putting the bullet back once the trigger has been pulled.  So when it comes to using it, be judicious.  A great rule of thumb is to ask yourself if you would have these 4 people read it:  your mother, your child, your future employer, and the person it is talking about.  If it can pass this test, it is probably good to publish.

When in doubt, leave it out.
Not to be confused with controversy, which can be healthy as it stimulates discussion and protects us from following on blind faith.  Don’t be afraid to point it out when “the Emperor has no clothes.”

If you live in the City of Bothell, you will definitely be interested in watching what happened at the City Council meeting on May 20th It is long, but you need to watch the first 20 minutes and again at about time stamp 2:54:00.

Open letter to the Bothell City Council and City Manager: The 1000 households that live in Morningside, Hollyhills, and Pioneer Hills don’t need a wider sidewalk to connect Pop Keeney to the park at Bothell Landing as you are proposing with AB #14-75 to designate Main Street and the multi-way boulevard as parkways at a cost of $42 Million.   What we need is a safe way for our kids to walk or bike from our neighborhoods to the YMCA or the softball and soccer fields in the North Creek busi [read] Keywords: blackberry

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:

SmartCloud Tip #04: Special considerations for Soft Deletions with MMR
Sat, Mar 15th 2014 6:12p   David Hablewitz
The SmartCloud administration panel has a setting for how long deleted messages are in the trash.  From the administration screen, in the left navigation click on IBM SmartCloud Notes, Click Account Settings… Click Email Management. This setting overrides the setting in the database properties – advanced tab – soft deletions. However… If your users are using Managed Mail Replicas (MMR), then they have a local replica and the Notes client will still process soft de [read] Keywords: acl admin administration ibm notes notes client database email properties server

SmartCloud Tip #03: Important Details to Setting the ACL on your Mail Files
Tue, Mar 4th 2014 5:14a   David Hablewitz
When you move to SmartCloud Notes, you get many great benefits, but of course there are a few tradeoffs.  One of those is giving up Manager access to the mail files.  Whether you’re the mail file owner or the system administrator, the best access you’ll ever have is Editor.  And unless you explicitly configure it otherwise, by default only the mail file owner will have any access at all. This is actually great for enforcing best practices. Users should never have more than editor [read] Keywords: acl admin agent ibm notes application applications bug database server
