Bluemix

Blue Mix and Ham

I am Dave
Dave I am.


I did not sign up for Bluemix today

I did not sign up yesterday.

I did not sign up thirty days ago

I did not sign up with an Eskimo


I did not sign up from a plane

I did not sign up from a train.

I did not sign up for a trial

Most days I don’t even drive a mile.


I did not sign up in the snow

If you’d ask me I’d tell you no.


I did not sign up on a bet

I simply did not sign up yet.


I did not yet build an app

I would rather take a nap.


Someday I might

When the time is right

People tell me it’s actually rather sweet

They tell me in chat, and even via tweet

It actually looks really neat


They’re smarter then me,

So they plainly see,

There’s power in Watson

Which might lead to adoption


I’m sure I’ll give it a try

I mean it, I can’t tell a lie

XPages in the cloud,

Would make me so proud


One day I’ll try Bluemix

Until then, please stop being ___


Well crap, I guess nothing rhymes with Bluemix… This will forever be unfinished now…  Sigh….

====

Way back in November I blogged about getting some similar emails from Bluemix. I didn’t like it then and I don’t like it now. I don’t like the wording, as again, I’ve not signed up, validated an email address or placed any apps or data on Bluemix.  I really wish IBM would cut this out.  People don’t need to be tricked into using Bluemix. It’s a turn off.  Just make Bluemix as great as you can and people will come. I’ve heard a lot of good about Bluemix from the recent IBM Connect conference.  And with new updates into Domino Designer I’m probably getting closer to actually giving it a try which is why getting this in my inbox is extra annoying. If I sign up today I feel like I’m giving into a phishing scheme.  And can I even sign in?  It says my trial period has ended?  I bet there’s a good chance that’ll be a pain to sort out.

Sigh.

NotesIn9 204: Building an Alexa Skill
Wed, Feb 22nd 2017 6:33p   David Leedy
I’m so excited about this show. After years of negotiations and down right harassment I’ve finally convinced/tricked Bruce Elgort to come on the show and share some if his knowledge. In this show Bruce will give us a great demo on building a skill for Amazon Alexa. If you’re not familiar with Alexa, it’s similar to Siri and “Ok Google”, in that it’s a voice based service. I think these voice services are going to only get bigger and bigger as time goes o

Everyone Pay Attention!! Declan is blogging again!
Wed, Feb 1st 2017 6:17p   David Leedy
Declan Lynch is famous for his legendary 54 part series on “Learning XPages”.  This was back in the day when there was no good info on XPages.  His series did not just pre-date NotesIn9, it was one of the inspirations of NotesIn9. Anyway – after a LONG hiatus Declan is finally blogging again. Our company is moving away from Domino and XPages.  So he’s starting a to blog on what that really means for application development.  What do you replace Domino with and why?

The Famous Lotusphere Pretzel Cookie
Thu, Jan 26th 2017 7:27p   David Leedy
One of the many legendary things from the conference once called “Lotusphere” was the “Pretzel Cookie” that was provided in the box lunch on the last day. If, like me, you’re not able to go to the conference this year but don’t want to miss out on the famous cookie I present to you 2 options. The first is this recipe from John Rolings blog : Create the infamous Pretzel Cookie at Home! My wife has made these before and I can attest it to be a pretty good repre

2017 IBM Champion thoughts.
Thu, Dec 15th 2016 2:58p   David Leedy
Yesterday IBM announced their 2017 “IBM Champions”. I’m honored to once again be associated with an amazing group of people.  This will be my 7th year as a champion going all the way back to when the program started. I do want to thank the people that took the time out of their day to think of me and nominate me.  I do hope my silly little NotesIn9 screencast has been valuable to you. I don’t talk about being an IBM Champion too often because one, I hate talking about m

My IBM Champion 1st Round Draft Pick
Mon, Oct 3rd 2016 12:46p   David Leedy
It’s that time of year again to talk about the IBM Champion program. I’ve blogged about it at least a couple times before in “how to thank someone”, and “thanking people that share” and I’m here to talk about again.  Additional information about the program is here. Actually this is one of my favorite blog posts I make.  I love trying to find someone who is not an IBM Champion but shares great content and I think deserves to be an IBM Champion. This

NotesIn9 201: Thoughts on the Future of XPages and NotesIn9
Mon, Sep 26th 2016 11:30a   David Leedy
This show is the sequel to my recent blog post titled “No More”. As I said in that post I HATE doing opinion stuff but feel that I now must. I also HATE talking about myself but because of things that happened at IconUK that is also a topic in the show. Because I wanted to talk about IconUK the show has grown bigger then I originally intended.  Sorry that couldn’t be helped. As mentioned in the show I have LOTS of people to be thankful for, especially, Mark Roden, Rob Mason

From the NotesIn9 Vault: Advertisements!
Thu, Sep 22nd 2016 7:52p   David Leedy
I’m still working on the next show, but to tide anyone over I thought I’d dig up some old advertisements I had done. First I think this might be the only XPages TV ad ever!! Then the kids played the roles of cousins to talk about Domino vs Exchange. Good times. P.S. The boy is now taller then I am!!!  WTH?
