Going to IBM ConnectED...ME TOO!
Tue, Jan 20th 2015 8:30a   Keith Brooks
So you, thought you, might like to, go to the show. The annual Lotus, IBM show known as Lotusphere IBM Connect now IBM ConnectED. Well, you got lucky today. I am going to give you some insights to this year’s edition. Whether you have a room at the top of the world of the Swan or Dolphin or just out on 192 or by the Downtown Disney area, you are getting ready for what will be a condensed, packed schedule of mostly hard core development and administration related topics across the IBM spectrum.

4.3 Billion Emails in my Inbox
Mon, Jan 12th 2015 12:20p   Keith Brooks
A few days ago I had posted some Tweets about my inbox being filled with some unreal amount of emails. It was not: a DoS attack massive SPAM campaign incorrect marketing blasts gone bad large attendee confirmation for an upcoming conference Actually I have no idea in the end what it was, but it was showing mails as far back as 2009. I got this clip of the screenshot where you can see, what may well be a record for the largest inbox, just under 4.3 BILLION emails. After some discussions, bot

In my previous post in the #EvangelistGuide series, I discussed writing competitive pitches, but covered quite a bit of ground as well. As promised, we now move on to the way one builds a competitive pitch. This may take many forms, and formats, with the idea being the same throughout, namely helping the customer say what they need and why they need it. If you start a conversation with an attack, you put people on the defensive, which is not always in your favor. However, there are times when

A Few New 2015 IBM Champions I want To Thank

Oh the stories we could tell... Many of us know each other, if not in person, then online and usually we found each other through blogs and sessions we gave at various events. Or at a User Group event or Lotusphere, IBM Connect, now IBM ConnectED. But sometimes we never meet which is a shame and some people, myself included, never know just how much we helped or are helped by others until they come up and tell us. I was named a 2015 IBM Champion for ICS for the 3rd year in a row. I don't know

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

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. This mobile/browser based communication portal unleashes the power of Watson to help you automat

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

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? I have a 10 11 1

SnTT - In Which Port Settings Don't Quite Work
Thu, Nov 6th 2014 3:13p   Keith Brooks
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
