(Not So) Super Secret Discount Code for IBM Connect 2017
Thu, Jan 19th 2017 3:50p   Kathy Brown
Okay, it’s a secret in that I’m not blogging it, but it’s not so secret, in that all you have to do is reach out to me ( @IamKathyBrown on most social media ) or any other IBM Champion of your choice, for a $100 discount to attend IBM Connect 2017. If you read this in time, you can also listen to the ICS Community call this morning at 10AM ET (link), where they will discuss “What To Expect at IBM Connect”.  If you miss it, they usually record it.

What’s Plasti Dip And How Did You Do That?
Wed, Dec 7th 2016 9:15p   Kathy Brown
I recently plasti-dipped my side mirror caps on my new MINI.  I posted pics in various places online and several people asked “What’s Plasti Dip?” So, PlastiDip is “an air-dry rubber coating”.  Originally used to cover tool handles by dipping them in the substance.  Then people started dipping their car tire rims, then other parts of the car.  PlastiDip now comes in cans, so you can spray it on almost anything.  Why is it so great?  Because it peels off.  Dec

I Got a New Ride
Fri, Nov 18th 2016 1:19p   Kathy Brown
The Background: I’ve never had a fancy car.  Cars aren’t really my thing, so I always chose utility, safety, price, etc.  I also have what I jokingly call “car dyslexia”.  I can never remember or distinguish between anyone’s cars.  Sure, I can tell the difference between a sedan and a truck, but all sedans look the same to me. My first car was an ’86 Honda Accord manual hatchback in “champagne”.  It was high school, the car was used and afford

Getting the Correct Syntax for JavaScript in XPages
Wed, Oct 5th 2016 11:00a   Kathy Brown
I was recently working on a project where my code was injecting XPage elements onto the page at runtime.  To do that, you need to know a lot of syntax.  Syntax that isn’t in the help file, or blogged about, or easily findable.  Sure, there’s this, but that isn’t exactly reader-friendly, nor are there examples of how to use the elements.  Just because you know you’re using “XspInputText”, doesn’t mean you know how to use it.  What’s the syntax

Back to Running
Fri, Sep 23rd 2016 2:46p   Kathy Brown
Tomorrow will be the fourth run of my current return to running.  Coincidentally, tomorrow is the 9th anniversary of my first run. (Excluding the time when I lived in New York and signed up for the Chase corporate challenge and did almost no training and attempted to run 3 miles..  I had no idea what I was doing, I ran too fast, hated it, and immediately quit.  So I count September 24, 2007 as my first run.)  It was the “run” before I started the couch to 5k program.  After that

Recent Adjustments to 6 Years Cable Free
Wed, Sep 21st 2016 10:55p   Kathy Brown
Like many people these days, I cut the cord.  In the summer of 2010, I moved into my current house and decided from the start that I wouldn’t have cable.  A few of my friends were already cable-free and could provide advice (thank you, Carl Tyler!).  Here’s the thing though, I’m lazy.  I want things to “just work”.  I don’t want to have to fiddle and futz.  So I knew I wasn’t going to jump through a bunch of hoops to go cable-free, it was going to

Some Experiments in Running and Technology
Sun, Sep 18th 2016 2:58p   Kathy Brown
Okay, technically it was one experiment testing several hypotheses, but anyway. Background for the experiment: I used to run.  I had a Garmin Forerunner for a very long time that I loved very much and then I had a Garmin 220, which I also loved very much.  These both served me well before there were phones with GPS and apps and watches, oh my.  I also used to upload the data from these watches to the very awesome RunningAhead website.  I love the site, and especially the training log.   Al

MWLUG 2016 Wrap Up
Mon, Aug 22nd 2016 10:49p   Kathy Brown
Last week I was in Austin, TX for MWLUG 2016.  This was my second time speaking at this event, and once again, it was a great experience. I have been to Texas several times, but had never been to Austin.  I’m still not sure I can say I’ve been to Austin, I feel like I only got to see a small slice of it.  Between humidity that felt like I was drowning (it IS August in Austin) and pouring rain, I didn’t get to get out and about as much as I would have liked (and I even stayed

I had no idea how much I needed this
Mon, Aug 8th 2016 9:32a   Kathy Brown
Yep, put this in the category of “Things I had no idea I needed, but now I don’t know how I ever lived without it” – my new Apple Watch. When they came out, I had very little interest.  First, I don’t wear a watch.  Secondly, I always have my phone next to me at all times, so a smart watch didn’t seem to do much for me.  Third, I have an awesome and dedicated running watch (and several different versions of things like fitbits that I never use), so the acti

The Road To Empathy – Read More
Mon, Jul 11th 2016 10:15p   Kathy Brown
I’m a big reader.  I love to read.  I always have.  As a child, I spent hours and hours reading in my room.  As an adult, my favorite vacations are the ones with no plans and a ton of books in my Kindle app. I’ve been told I’m “too empathetic”.  I’m not sure that’s possible, except that I am easily heartbroken over matters that aren’t mine.  I know correlation doesn’t mean causation.  And I’m not saying people that don’t re

How Staying in a Hotel Teaches Empathy
Fri, Jul 8th 2016 9:17a   Kathy Brown
My heart hurts for the world and many recent events.   When a tragedy happens we all wonder what we can do and then we go about our day, doing nothing to change the future.  As I stated in my last post, I think having empathy for others is something you can do.  No, it won’t fix everything, but it could help.  Being more empathetic is easy.  Teaching your children empathy is easy. I like to travel.  I like to travel with my kids.  Once when they were young, we entered our hotel room

What the World Needs Now
Wed, Jul 6th 2016 11:54p   Kathy Brown
The song says what the world needs now is love, but I think we need a little more empathy, or maybe more empathy leads to more love. Maybe I’m just a grumpy old lady yelling “get off my lawn”.  Maybe this is how it’s always been, maybe not, but it seems to me we have lost empathy.  Empathy is the ability to understand the feelings of others.  That’s it.  Seems a relatively small thing, right?  Yet we seem to have lost that ability.  In large and small ways, la

Speaking at MWLUG 2016!
Mon, Jun 27th 2016 10:14a   Kathy Brown
I’m pleased to say I’ll be speaking at MWLUG this year in Austin.  This will be my second time speaking at MWLUG and my first time ever to Austin.  I’m looking forward to both!  It’s also my first time speaking with Shean McManus! We will be presenting: Using Dashboards to Transform Application Data Visualization When you’re driving a car, you need a lot of data quickly. How fast are you going? Are there any problems you need to address? Where do you get that dat
