Now I got my account and I am playing around with it. First impressions: It does look better than iNotes, or not? I am not sure. I can’t figure out, how to add a sender to my address book? Does anybody know, how to change the initials in the circles? When I compose an email and start typing the address, it get’s ugly. Way too slow. I really want to get into it and see how it works. If you are game, would you send me please emails to christian.tillmanns (at) ibmverse.com? I will no

What do we have today? Since ConnectED a lot of things have happened, but for me it all started at the Connect 2015 in Zürich. As every year, I did a long blog post about it. I took 14 pages of notes and still managed to get it somehow wrong. Or did I really? The thing that made me “famous” was, that I said, that Scott said, that Jeff said IBM wants half a billion IBM Verse users. That was on 9 of march. On the 17th Volker Weber had a meeting with Jeff, who said, that somebody (me)

Having Trouble registering for IBM Verse?
Tue, Apr 7th 2015 9:08a   Christian Tillmanns
Just found some fine print in the Verse support forum: If you have trouble registering, having an account created for you, or if you’ve forgotten your password, please send an email to WebMaster@ibmverse.com I am going to wait, even though Vowe thinks, that I have broken the waiting list by registering several times. Serves me right.

IBM? Why?
Thu, Apr 2nd 2015 4:08a   Christian Tillmanns
I try to register for Verse. No success. For the umpteenth time. With several email addresses. Since last summer. Not that I need it, it just about going to the cloud with IBM or not? I would at least like to test it.

IBM Verse Freemium is DEAD
Fri, Mar 13th 2015 4:02a   Christian Tillmanns
What can change in a week. Last week in Zürich Scott Souder said IBM Verse Freemium will not be a crippled version. So much for that. Nice move from IBM to stab Scott in the back. Now it is a preview version that is so useless, that IBM might what to turn that server of again. That would save a few bucks in electricity. IBM Verse Support Forum (thank’s to Karl-Henry Martinsson) IBM really does not get it (… again). Somehow Vowes comment about the Village Idiot comes to mind. Let

Soul or Numbers – Sports for Developers
Tue, Mar 10th 2015 1:54p   Christian Tillmanns
A year ago Vowe started walking. Today he is doing at least a hundred kilometers a week. This is great. It certainly changed his life. If you are a “numbers athlete” you can do that, too. I am not. Also a year ago I felt I had to do something. I sensed, that I wasn’t up to speed anymore while moguls skiing. I have never been really fat. 10 years ago I was at my worst with slightly over 80 kilo, today I am down to 75 again. My BMI was never out of the normal range. Therefore I

ConnectEd in Zürich – Old Boys meeting

I am not going to bore you with a lot of technical news about IBM Verse and stuff, but first, I want to thank the IBM partners and distributors, who actually run the show. IBM provides rooms and some speakers, the partners do all the rest, as I was told. Great job, really. This time, there were more C-Level tracks half as long as a technical session. I suppose that was to allow for the lower attention span of the C-Levels, therefore I will do the same thing here and give those with a lot of mee

A question about freebe Verse
Fri, Jan 30th 2015 10:38a   Christian Tillmanns
Some of you probably know it. If I change to cloud Verse in the free Version, can I use my own domain? That would be a game changer. Nobody does that AFAIK. Otherwise, I don’t really need another email address.

Notes and Domino as Open Source – Is this really a good idea?
Mon, Jan 26th 2015 4:33p   Christian Tillmanns
Once in a while the call for open sourcing of Notes and Domino comes up. Actually I personally would like that. But would it really boost the use of Notes and Domino? That is the point were I have doubts. Let’s just forget for a moment some issues that will prevent this, because apparently there is some third-party code in there, IBM can not just give away. That’s a legal problem. Let’s focus on the other problems, which are huge enough. Technical While I have no doubt, that

It’s time to say goodby … or is it?
Wed, Jan 21st 2015 10:09a   Christian Tillmanns
25 years of Notes & Domino and the signs of the end of an era are getting stronger. Hardcore yellow bleeders are moving to other pastures. Some think it is the last ConnectED. That’s sad. Especially since IBM had tons of chances to turn it around. Instead of using those 138 billion (138’000’000’000 or 9.86b/yr) USD since 2000 for making a few people richer (and a lot of employees/retirees poorer), IBM could have used that, to get its act together. Did not happen. Some
