A Rabbi Walks into a Social Media Stream
Tue, May 26th 2015 3:29p   Keith Brooks
Sure there is a joke here, leaving that to some of my funnier fiends. This is about a different view of being social, so hang on while I explain. This post is somewhat different than the original one posted over here a few days ago. What happens when you disagree with your Rabbi? No, you don't go to hell or get banned from synagogue, but in some places this is implausible. One should never go against their Rabbi's rulings! (For the record I never asked about the internet but the view is comp

Breaking Out of The Bubble
Fri, May 15th 2015 2:44a   Keith Brooks
What an amazing day I had yesterday! So full of life and learning, every day of work should be this great! How did it get to be this way? What did I do? Who did I meet? Where was I? My day started out like any other day, get up, wake up the kids, walk the dog, drop the kids off at school and then head East for about 15 minutes to the nearby city of Modiin. Modiin is about 10 km east of Ben Gurion Airport, 35 km southeast of Tel Aviv and about 30 km west of Jerusalem and 20km from Rehovot where

Explaining the Mixed Mindset of a Social Organization

If you were not at my session at the Social Connections conference in Boston 2 weeks ago, you can still see and download my slides, but I don't think you will quite get the gist of the message I expressed. A catch-22 of great magnitude that while your outside persona is free to post, your "business" head is confused or full of fear. Let me explain. Email vs. Status Updates, or Single vs. Blended, is a metaphor for the way your organization works. Collaboration or as the marketers call it

Time Travel the Daylight Savings Time Way
Thu, Mar 26th 2015 12:05p   Keith Brooks
Over here, we change the clocks tonight. It is a random event decided by the government. But that is not the point of this blog post. Governments suck at understanding technology, be it farming or digital, they should just stop messing with us. But I digress. While working on a client site I noticed that the log file view shows a time, say 9:45am-10:02am. When you open the document, I saw 8:45am times. Please be aware this will not hurt your server in any way as it is a client side view iss

SOCCNX 8 Invades Boston And I will be Speaking on Single Malt Vs. Blended
Wed, Feb 25th 2015 1:49p   Keith Brooks
I expect a few vendors to order Magic 8-Balls (US people know what is, for everyone else see this page) For those who do not know, Social Connections (SOCCNX) has been running across Europe for the last few years and providing a different type of event. Not as much of a user group as an affinity group for people that want to be social and collaborative. The dates are April 16-17, 2015 in Boston. Register to attend if you have not already. Ideally it represents IBM Connections and some derivativ

6 Months? Has it Been that Long?
Thu, Feb 12th 2015 10:48a   Keith Brooks
Not since I blogged, but since we left the US. August 12thwe picked up the family and the labrador and moved to Israel. And it has been the best thing we have done in years. Many of my friends at the IBM event formerly known as Lotusphere in Orlando remarked how much happier I seemed, that I must be enjoying myself. The truth, of course, is not as rosy as Facebook posts, but there is much truth to it nonetheless. Life is different. You get used to creature comforts in the US that just do not ex

The IBM Ver, Ver, Ver, Ver, Ver, Ver, Verse
Mon, Feb 9th 2015 11:16a   Keith Brooks
Sorry Duran Duran for taking liberties. By now IBM has done their marketing show to bring you the “new” email client called Verse. Those from the outside and even within will say it is the new iNotes or Webmail. They would be correct in that description. It is. But it is also so much more. It turns out, for whatever cyclical reason, which is beyond the space time continuum, Microsoft, Amazon(?!), IBM, Google and numerous others are presenting new ways and formats of email. Oddly enough Faceb

The ConnectED 2015 Edition is Closed For Renovations Until Further Notice
Fri, Feb 6th 2015 8:07a   Keith Brooks
This is the first Lotusphere (that is what a very yellow clad IBMer proclaimed) in years I did not do any blogging. Not a daily, no recaps, no massive posting. Just one posting, my SpeedGeeking session slide deck. Why the silence? I chose to follow IBMs lead. No fanfare, no big PR team push, no daily main tent sessions, no branding on stage. IBM hit the target, they wanted it to feel like a LUG and it did. Friends gathered, speakers presented, SpeedGeeking rocked, as usual, and somewhere in bet

SpeedGeeking 2015 "How to Manage Exchange Admins (and their servers) with Domino"

Speedgeeking was awesome, as usual. We hope you enjoyed it, learned something, and of course drank, ate and had fun. For those that ask, here are my slides up in SlideShare, these are the clean editions, if you were there, you will understand.
