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!

Once upon a time people would have discussions with one another and argue the finer points of The Beatles Vs. The Rolling Stones, beer vs. wine, blended vs. singe malt scotch or is Eric Clapton really God? Should we be in Vietnam or Korea or do we colonize Mars. iPhone vs. Android, Jobs vs. Ford, 72' Dolphins vs. anyone. But the fun and good times eventually gives way to serious business discussions at work when you are in sales and now you not only need to have a good argument, you also need t [read] Keywords: consulting development google interface iphone microsoft

If you spent the two hours online watching the video and speakers (link to watch the replay) during the IBM event today, you found yourself going back and forth across a spectrum from amazement to amusement. The new name of the Mail.Next product is IBM Verse, no mention, that I recall, of the server name being changed. I am not going to try to explain the name, Alan Lepofsky did it quite well here.

I had some discussions around presenting and training and my blog style over the last few days. When preparing presentations, and blog posts, that are of a technical nature, there a few steps involved. The premise of the problem, some investigation work to solving it, testing the solutions then providing details around the one that worked. Many times I provide the question, and the answer, in order to help make other techies lives easier for them, when they run into the same problems. When I w [read] Keywords: email security twitter

I Finally Experiencd the Social Connections Conference
Sat, Nov 15th 2014 1:10p   Keith Brooks
If you have been living outside of the collaboration or social space you probably have no idea what conference I am discussing. The Social Connections Conference, which has just completed their 7th conference in 3.5 years, is an impressive effort that you should experience too. Having been a part of or attended so many conferences over the years I had been unable to get to any of the Social Connections events until this one in Stockholm, Sweden and what makes it so impressive?

Been a long time since I wrote a Show n Tell Thursday so let's get on with it. Building an IBM Domino cluster is not as difficult as it was years ago and I was done with the basic parts and wanted to test the fail over. I figured easiest way to do this was to enter at a server console "stop port tcpip" while connected via rdp to the server. I tested mail clients could fall over to the 2nd server and mail routed. Great. Back to the server and server console and tell it to "start port tcpip [read] Keywords: administration connections domino ibm notes show n tell sntt google network server

Where we live there is a newspaper, in print, that is free and is very pro the current government. I say good for them if they can keep it going on dwindling advertising revenue, or the owner is some wealthy patron who feels the need to lose some money, either way, what is the problem? The problem is some government officials think this is propaganda with the aim of helping the existing government officials stay in office and should be treated accordingly. They are trying to pass a law that ne [read] Keywords: office twitter

Curios Reading from 2007 About Collaborative Networks and Conflict
Mon, Nov 3rd 2014 6:53a   Keith Brooks
“A Manager’s Guide to Resolving Conflicts in Collaborative Networks” (Washington, D.C.: IBM Center for The Business of Government, 2007) While researching my upcoming session at Social Connections VII in Stockholm, Sweden in 2 weeks I came across this article from 2007, naturally backed by IBM, on collaboration, conflict and accountability. The authors: Lisa Blomgren Bingham, Professor and Keller-Runden Chair in Public Service, Indiana University andRosemary O'Leary, Edwin O.

Half baked ideas? No, they were completely baked and ready to go....except for a strategic piece. Lost in translation or just lost in space, hard to know sometimes where to assign the lack of accountability. A Cloud solution that is not quite ready for the Enterprise or an application that you are working on when you suddenly realize no one thought about who would use the solution, let alone, why they need it. Governments, countries, airports and many organizations run into this it seems more [read] Keywords: connections domino ibm application email enterprise microsoft office sharepoint

NIche SEO Worked for Us
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 6:53a   Keith Brooks
We ended up here, didn't we because of SEO? This is the revelation that occurred to me recently when looking at how we ended up in a city in Israel that is not on most people's vacation itinerary. Rehovot was the home of Ubique, a little company IBM bought to include inside their Sametime offering. They still retain offices here for Sametime development. Many people spend tons of money to increase their exposure and search ranks which boils down to SEO methods that are a mix of data analytic [read] Keywords: ibm sametime community development facebook google wiki
