First beta of Notes/Domino Social Edition now out to design partners
Ed Brill    

Earlier today, we distributed the first external beta code drop of Notes/Domino Social Edition to our Design Partners. This is also the third code drop of the Notes/Domino 8.5.4 beta release, but the first to start adding the key new Social Edition features.

Design Partners are still covered by a non-disclosure agreement, so you won't hear from them quite yet on what's new. To give you an idea of what they're now playing with though, it's what we described in various sessions at Lotusphere 2012.

This is the first build where the Notes browser plug-in, which allows the use of Notes client applications in a web browser without the Notes client needing to be installed, is officially ready for testing. The release has only been in Design Partner hands for a few hours and I am already receiving "OMG" emails :-). Note, starting with this build, we have simplified the name of that plug-in --  we had been calling it something like a "Notes Application Player Plug-In for Windows" and now we are just saying "Notes browser plug-in". Also we are building that for Internet Explorer and Firefox; I know my Lotusphere slides showed we hadn't decided which two browsers to focus on first.

There are several other enhancements in the code drop 3 build, including completely updated iNotes calendar forms, abbreviated dates in the inbox, SAML support, and a number of XPages enhancements.

We expect the next code drop - likely about six to eight weeks from now - to be more broadly available to beta program participants, and also to include updates to Notes Traveler.

As indicated at Lotusphere, we plan to ship Notes/Domino Social Edition and the Notes/Domino 8.5.4 release by the end of 2012.

Here is a screen shot of the new iNotes calendar workflow UI:

Trip report: TED@IBM
Wed, Sep 24th 2014 2:56p   Ed Brill
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to attend the first-ever TED@IBM event at the San Francisco SF JAZZ center. I've watched a few TED talks, but it's far different being there in person with those big red TED letters sitting on the stage. About 500 people attended, a mix of IBM clients, partners, industry figures, visionaries, and IBMers. We heard about a dozen different talks - half from IBMers and half from industry voices. There was some entertainment, some intrigue, and some Twitter trending [read] Keywords: ibm application network twitter

ICON UK 2014: IBM’s Social Business Transformation
Tue, Sep 16th 2014 7:13a   Ed Brill
It has been a busy three months since my new position as Vice President, IBM Social Business Transformation was announced. Immediately after starting my new role, I left for Taiwan for a three-week assignment on an IBM Smarter Cities Challenge project team. The philanthropic experience was everything I expected and then some. I returned to the US at a new address - my family had moved to a new home across town, just before my flight to Taipei. The next few weeks were an adjustment - new home, ne [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm blogging community iphone social software

IBM Connect 2014: IBM MobileFirst report
Thu, Jan 30th 2014 2:20p   Ed Brill
I'm on my way home from my 18th trip to Orlando in January, leaving behind friends and memories from IBM Connect 2014. This was my first time at the event outside of the brand/division running it, and it definitely felt a little bit different. I didn't know what was being announced or previewed in the general sessions, had no dog of my own in the hunt. Of course, I continue to be enthusiastic about IBM's Collaboration Solutions, but I watched from the perspective more of an alumnus with far l [read] Keywords: collaboration domino ibm notes enterprise mobile twitter

What a difference a year makes. It's just over a week away from the start of IBM Connect 2014. Though this will be my 18th time in Orlando in January, my agenda is a bit different this time.
