Quickr Administrator Book now on Kindle

Packt let me know that our book is now available for Kindle's at Amazon.
The link is to the right of this post.

Like to know what people think about the price on this.
I question higher prices on electronic devices for books, and I am an author.

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

Did That A-ha Moment Passed You By?
Fri, May 23rd 2014 6:30a   Keith Brooks
No matter your age, location, job status or religion you always have an opportunity. Sometimes we do not see a light at the end of tunnel. But it is really no different than trying to install a piece of software that is giving you a hard time and you just need that one little extra push or tweak to make it work. Your life is the same. While it's true, you regret the choices not selected, you always have time to make them. Maybe not today or tomorrow, but this week, next weekend. Your frie [read] Keywords: application

Got all your DUCS in a Row?
Wed, May 21st 2014 7:40a   Keith Brooks
This was a draft of a post which for whatever reason I never published. Might be useful to someone out there. DUCS was discontinued but if anyone needs some legacy help.... Don't know what DUCS is? Domino Unified Communication Services (DUCS) This has dragged on for 3 days now while I wait on the Cisco BP to figure out what Lotus Domino and Sametime are all about. Poor guy never seen one before, Domino server that is. Wish clients would ask us before doing these silly things, we could have [read] Keywords: domino foundations ibm ldd lotus notes sametime integration server wiki

10 Things Silo Organizations and Management Will Never Understand
Tue, May 20th 2014 11:40a   Keith Brooks
The next time you are cruising at 10,000 feet or roaming around some conference exhibition floor or just trolling the web, think about your company. I want you to think about how you share information today, and what you would change about it for tomorrow. If you could see yourself through the eyes of your customers as well, even more helpful. If you find yourself thinking along the ideas below, you may be a silo organization and in that case... Your organization may profess to "getting social [read] Keywords: collaboration notes roaming blogger community database desktop email gadget linkedin network office server

Do Something Utterly Meaningless
Mon, May 5th 2014 7:10a   Keith Brooks
When was the last time you did something utterly meaningless and it made you so happy you have no idea why you don't continue to do it more often? Some of you may know about my recent excursion before leaving IBM's Impact conference last Thursday. I have been trying to do this for a few years and finally got to do it. I took a cab out to the Pinball Hall of Fame/Museum as it is billed in Las Vegas. Do you remember what it was like as a kid going to an arcade or miniature golf or whatever ki [read] Keywords: ibm google

You can make your own Knowledge Accidents
Thu, May 1st 2014 5:20p   Keith Brooks
Are Knowledge Accidents your business goal? Why not? Don't you want to help your teams perform better? Don't you want your customers to help you provide them with better products or services? In looking into where this term came from I found this article from past CEO of Lotus, Al Zollar. In the article, Lotus Development CEO Al Zollar says that knowledge management is simply to do with as applying technology to "knowledge accidents".According to Zollar, "Knowledge accidents happen when p [read] Keywords: collaboration ibm lotus development enterprise exchange exchange google network server twitter

The Cube Interview from IBM Impact

One of the interviews I did at IBM Impact was with Paul and John from The Cube. Paul and I did a Google hangout last year after Sugarcon around CRM, link here. I am #5 on the list found here: http://siliconangle.tv/ibmimpact-lasvegas-2014/ This time we hit on many topics, the Opening keynote, collaboration, HR, etch a sketch, analytics, messaging, conference calls, meeting analytics and Unified Comunications.

IBM SocMed Residencies
Thu, May 1st 2014 7:20a   Keith Brooks
At IBM Impact there was a fresh group of Social Media Residency people. All IBMers, unlike my group almost 2 years ago, so these people should really know what they are talking about. The new recruits spent two days before Impact prepping and learning before they were left to go during the event to see what they could come up with on their own. I give IBM a lot of credit for doing something like this in parallel to an event. It provides a sink or swim approach, perhaps, but really solves the b [read] Keywords: ibm application blogger blogging twitter
