Better blog now that I am an IBM ICS Champion
   

I heard from some friends before I received the official email from Joyce that I am now a 2013 IBM Lotus ICS Champion. I was on a PMR call and missed the Community meeting.

You can see the entire list of the 2013 Champions here.

I have not blogged in over 40 days which means the flood is finished and I can venture out again.
Not muchtweeting either, my Klout score dropped by 5 points and is under 60 now. Ok, that i can ignore, but it shows what happens when you fall off the Earth.

Been working on projects that can't talk about in public, sorry about it, thus my quiet efforts.

Have also been in London and Dublin last 2 weeks for work and family.


Have been working on Connections quite a bit and will post some things I have found out.

Hope to see most of you in Orlando in January.

Sorry to be so simple but still amazed to be listed as a Champion.

Congrats to all the other Champions!

Conference Season is Picking Up

I have been a bit out of the loop the last 4-6 weeks but for those who have been in the know, there are many conferences, especially IBM ones, over the next few months. Some are asking for abstracts. Hint, hint.

Apps That Make Life Easier in Other Countries
Wed, Aug 20th 2014 7:10a   Keith Brooks
On my travels lately we have been using extensively a few apps which some of you may need or want when you travel as well. I am not so excited by any of the lame efforts of gamification, so ignoring this GAM (Game Spam) the apps are: Everyone knows about WAZE and if you don't, go get it now and never get lost or late anywhere you drive. Like WAZE, MOOVIT does for you bus users and train users what WAZE does for drivers. A bit confusing of a UI but once you get used to it you will not stop. It [read] Keywords: google skype

Are you a Catalyst?
Tue, Aug 19th 2014 6:50a   Keith Brooks
About two weeks ago I was involved in a discussion on Twitter with someone about blogging and awareness. He writes a blog about AIX systems which I like but rarely get to play with any more. He tweeted to me about how management doesn’t “get” his blogging nor gives him any credit for it. My answer is, this too will pass and his time will come. Writing for a few weeks or months, even in some cases years, does not produce tangible results until some catalyst brings you into the spotlight. I [read] Keywords: aix blogger blogging twitter

Yes, I gave it all away in the title of this post. For the rest of you that clicked through to read about this topic, let me start with this story. This quite possibly may be my longest blog post I ever write. You have been warned.Around 1994 or 1995 I was managing Citibank's Latin American Lotus Notes network. I visited numerous countries there and checked on our cc:Mail, Notes and OpenMail installations and personnel.One trip scheduled was to Bogota, Colombia. In those years it was common, a [read] Keywords: collaboration connections ibm lotus lotusphere notes apple community network office

Daf Yomi, 2 years down, 5.5 to go
Mon, Aug 4th 2014 7:10a   Keith Brooks
Happy Birthday to my baby who turned 7 years old yesterday which also happens to be the anniversary of when we started Daf Yomi. When I started the Daf Yomi, you can read past posts from last year at the 1st anniversary, I wondered if I would stick with it. It is hard to spend about 45 minutes a day, on average, doing something for yourself. No PR side, no monetary side, no work benefits, just pure learning for the sake of learning. What have I been learning? Here is a simple breakdown of the [read] Keywords: wiki

Job Found, Blogging Helps

Happy to say I will be working with The RockTeam as their Professional Services Manager. Continuing on with the YellowBubble and the collaboration space that I enjoy. Best thing about it, I get to work with a few friends and meet some new ones. And be social again. Blogging Helped The few days in between posting about looking for work and finding it was made easier when one friend, Arif, connected me with Doug who had just posted the position. Timing is indeed everything. It is very hard to [read] Keywords: collaboration connections blogging facebook linkedin network

Job Hunting Time
Fri, Jul 18th 2014 6:50a   Keith Brooks
As of a few days ago I am newly available. A free agent on the scene looking for a company to call home. Sure I'd love to restore an old corvette or another pinball machine, but not enough money in those hobbies for the average person with a family. What I can do is restore customer service departments or service delivery organizations to award level status. Over the last year and a half, I was managing the delivery of services for over 500,000 people, prior to taking on the role of Directo [read] Keywords: agent email skype twitter

Bruce Springsteen Gets Collaboration How About You?
Fri, Jun 27th 2014 10:10a   Keith Brooks
Bruce Springsteen inducted his long time sidemen and woman into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame a few weeks back and HBO showed the ceremony. I caught Bruce's introduction speech and thought it was just what I want to say to management everywhere. Namely, you know what you know, but the people that work for you are what will make you look better and greater than anything you can dream up. At the 13:00 minute mark, Bruce explains in simple English what collaboration is all about. Full text at R [read] Keywords: collaboration application blogger

Fix my printer or why remote management..
Mon, May 26th 2014 6:30a   Keith Brooks
Doesn't work for every situation. There is nothing worse than a client agreeing to let you work for them remotely and then demanding someone be onsite every week. So how do you do it? Will this break the deal? Cost you too much? There are always possibilities but planning is key. Few issues really require onsite visits as remote connections to clients, servers and routers is common. So why do you need to be onsite? Executives and their assistants usually are primary reasons. But unless a fai [read] Keywords: connections twitter
