Book Review: One Step at A Time. The book I won at MWLUG
Wed, Dec 4th 2013 4:12p   John Coolidge
One Step at a time by Josh Bleill is one of the best books I have read in a long time. This is an amazing story about Josh who served in Iraq and lost both his legs from an IED. This book is definitely one for the reading list. If anyone does not believe those who serve, especially those who have given their life or been crippled, are amazing heroes well you will after reading this book. How [read] Keywords:

I want to get everyone's opinion on this. I am not saying that I believe either way. I am pursuing becoming a connections developer. But I talk to clients, peers, and friends about connections and I do not get a warm fuzzy feeling about it, especially in the SMB market. Cost, implementation and user adoption are the main concerns.

Thu, Dec 13th 2012 5:15p   John Coolidge

Native data on your mobile device?
Fri, Oct 7th 2011 10:09a   John Coolidge
How important is it to have your notes data on your phone/tablet? We all know about working offline with Notes databases but does having native data on your device vs. a web app really make a difference? There are some areas where it is hard to get a good signal, parts of New York City for example. All those big buildings are great at blocking access to cells.
