Key Takeaways for me from Lotusphere 2012
Marie Scott    

I’m winding down the week of Lotusphere 2012 trying to fight off the usual post-conference plague/cold. The last few years I’ve been fortunate to add a few days to the end of the week to spend some time in Florida before heading home to the grey and cold winterscape of home. Winters in Virginia are nothing like what lots of Lotusphere attendees experience; we don’t usually have much snow. But we do have cold spells, occasional ice storms, and days of gray cloudiness. So the opportunity each January (over the last 14 years) to spend some time in the Florida sun has been most welcome.

As I was reading Tom Duff’s post last night. I realized that in many ways my own life situation is similar. Lotusphere attendance for me may be a thing of the past. But as many people have said, “never say never.” My life has taught me that over and over again!

But because of the uncertainty about the future it was a different sort of Lotusphere. I was excited to see some of the new shiny “toys” demoed in the OGS. And in past Lotuspheres I would have been have been immediately thinking of how I could implement that in our environment.

Instead I would have to say that they most important items I’m going home with are: inspiration, the importance of friendship and community, and the importance of your life’s journey. Those three themes seemed to repeat over and over whether it was in the solidarity of friends/colleagues who attended Gab Davis and Andrew Pollack’s Security session for #OccupyPelican or the truly inspiring talks in the Nerd Girl Spark Session. And finally after spending an day with a friend whom I hadn’t seen in in years, and after listening to her life story and how cancer affected her, I was overwhelmed by how the threads of the week all came together.

I shared Mitch Cohen’s Spark Session (Get Cancer Get Social) with her. And she pointed out that in some ways women with breast cancer today are fortunate not only because of the progress in curing the disease but because of the internet and the online communities and information sources – these were not available to her when she was diagnosed. It reminded me of Dr. Burns discussed in the OGS how he and his team were able to share their experiences with pediatric hospitals all over the world – through the internet. How wonderful that we as technologists might have a tiny part of being able to help save someone’s life as we push to make the collaboration software technology to run faster and better and in more creative ways.

So no matter what you took home from this year’s Lotusphere, I hope that you are as inspired as I am to connect with colleagues, to explore new technologies, to push ourselves to see how we might help others and most of all have fun in the process!

Best wishes for a sucessful year ahead!

To the Cloud and Beyond….
Wed, Apr 4th 2012 4:40p   Marie Scott
As some of you may know, Virginia Commonwealth University (my employer) has been undergoing a request for proposal process for a new cloud collaboration system.  After several months of vendor interviews, demos, and contract negotiations, the purchasing committee has chosen Google Apps for Education. VCU has been running Lotus Notes/Domino since 1996.  Sixteen years.  That’s a long time in the IT world.  In the course of that time I’ve been the lead architect, engineer, administrator and [read] Keywords: collaboration domino domino.doc inotes lotus notes quickr sametime traveler xpages database development email facebook google instant messaging mobile twitter

BP201: Assemble ‘n Go: Integrate Data and Directories with Tivoli Directory Integrator
Wed, Jan 25th 2012 7:30a   Marie Scott
Tom Duff and I had the privilege of speaking at Lotusphere 2012 on one of our favorite topics – Tivoli Directory Integrator.  This year we chose to do a Best Practices session rather than a Show and Tell session, so at least for me, the BP session felt like speedgeeking as we had tons of content to fit into an hour! Afterwards, we had some interesting questions and discussions about how to use TDI.  There are so many different ways you can use this product, and when you get a bunch of n [read] Keywords: lotusphere show and tell email facebook tivoli twitter

Spark Session: The most difficult and yet most fulfilling Lotusphere speaking gig!
Mon, Jan 23rd 2012 11:02a   Marie Scott
Who knew that speaking for only six minutes would be so difficult to prepare for?  I certainly didn’t when I submitted my abstract for the Nerd Girl Spark session.  I’m not as experienced a speaker as many of my Lotusphere speaking colleagues by far, but I still wasn’t prepared for the angst I went through when preparing for the Spark session. I had no issue with coming up with the topic which was “Two Women, Two Countries, and how a decision can shape a generation. [read] Keywords: atlantic lotusphere facebook mobile twitter

Emails received as HTML text – How to correct!
Thu, Nov 3rd 2011 7:10a   Marie Scott
Several users (8.5.1 and 8.5.2) have reported receiving emails as HTML formatted text.  After reviewing Notes preferences and reinstalling the Notes client, IBM Support was contacted. Here are the findings: This problem may occur after Google Chrome has been uninstalled.   If the default browser is not chosen when uninstalling Chrome, Notes will not be able to find the OS default browser. To resolve the issue, set Internet Explorer or Firefox as Window’s default browser.   In some case [read] Keywords: ibm notes notes client facebook firefox google twitter

Traveler 8.5.3 and Apple Devices
Wed, Nov 2nd 2011 8:47a   Marie Scott
We’ve been testing Traveler 8.5.3 in advance of our roll-out to our users this weekend. One thing we noticed was that on our Apple test devices, lookups for groups returned extra data.  See below: Upon investigation, I found this wiki article.  Adding the following property to the datatravelercfgNTSConfig.xml file addresses this issue and does not affect lookups for any other device (Android, etc.).  Be sure to test this out first before modifying this in your production environment!

Domino 8.5.3 and iNotes Lite Mode
Wed, Nov 2nd 2011 8:04a   Marie Scott
A colleague of mine ran into this scenario after migrating to Domino 8.5.3 with iNotes.  After upgrading, users logging into iNotes would experience a browser time.  Research found that the setting in the notes.ini:  iNotes_wa_DefaultUI=dwa_lite if removed, would allow the users to login successfully.  However, the preference was to have iNotes_lite as the default.  They aren’t using the iNotes redirect to set those settings on the fly.  After contacting IBM Support, they were notified t [read] Keywords: domino ibm inotes notes facebook twitter

I know everyone is excited about the release of Notes/Domino 8.5.3.  And there is lots of information to digest regarding features and requirements.  One good bit of news I don’t want you to miss – is the entitlement for Tivoli Directory Integrator!  If you were keeping up, there were some licensing changes in 8.5.2 that limited the version of TDI and what types of data you could move with an assembly line. However, that’s all changed with 8.5.3.  Check out the licensing info regarding [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes enterprise facebook server tivoli twitter

Has someone discovered the “lost” iPhone 5 with the Notes client on it??
Wed, Sep 28th 2011 8:17a   Marie Scott
I’ve finally hit a tipping point.  I was reading the headlines in PlanetLotus.org this morning and the content immediately set off alarms. Having been on both sides of the fence so to speak – both as a customer who wasn’t connected to the “yellowverse” per se and as someone who now has a network of peers who are business partners and leaders in the Lotus community, I can see how the average customer may be totally confused by what they read here.  There are headlines posted here prio [read] Keywords: lotus notes notes client blogging community facebook iphone network planet lotus planetlotus planetlotus.org twitter
