Sun, Jan 18th 2015 10:40p   Mat Newman
Every now and then I come across an article published by Fortune Magazine back in December 1994. Yes, that's over 20 years ago and as you know Notes is now into it's 25th Year. As I mentioned a few weeks ago, Alan Lepofsky, Carly Tyler and I have a session at ConnectED that will share some of the highlights from the past 25 years of Lotus and Notes. I also have a little something prepared that I'm going to share next week at #IBMConnectED, but for the moment have a read of the article and c

Announcing the availability of the Totally Unofficial Totally Unsupported IBM ConnectED Session Database
Tue, Jan 13th 2015 5:31p   Mat Newman
A couple of years a group of enterprising individuals picked up the mantle left by Ben Langhinrichs and created the IBM Connect 2013 and 2014 session databases. This year the conference has been renamed to IBM ConnectED, which of course would not be complete without the communities Totally Unofficial, Totally Unsupported IBM Notes Session Database.

In the past couple of days Ray Ozzie has released an awesome series of Tweets recounting the history of IRIS and Lotus Notes.

Where does Mail.Next come from
Sun, Nov 16th 2014 3:17p   Mat Newman
In the past few weeks I've been asked a lot of questions as we approach the signature event launch of IBM Mail Next this week on November 18th.

A quiet farewell Lotus 1-2-3, Organizer and Smartsuite
Sun, Oct 5th 2014 11:45p   Mat Newman
Last week a fairly significant date passed without much fanfare: The Withdrawal From Support (WFS) for some of the best desktop software ever created in Lotus 1-2-3, Lotus Organizer and the Lotus Smartsuite office package. This - of course - followed on from the announcement that these iconic products would be withdrawn from marketing effective the 11th of June, 2013. WFM is the term used to signify that a product will no longer be available for purchase by customers. WFS means that a prod

Ok Timmy ...
Mon, May 12th 2014 9:21p   Mat Newman
The first time we met face to face, we engaged in a deeply geeky conversation about manipulating arrays of rich text objects that I brought to him late one night at Kimono's. It was my first Lotusphere back in 2008 and I had been hunting down the legends of the community to meet them in person for the first time. Tim was one of the folks at the top of my list that I had to meet, for reasons that many others have written about today in lament of his passing. Yes, Tim was a Genius. Capital

Sametime contacts, a couple of things you might not know
Thu, May 1st 2014 2:06a   Mat Newman
One of my favourite features of IBM Sametime integration within the Notes client's side-bar is the way you can utilise contacts with Notes address features in Email, Calendar Meeting Entries and Group To-Do's. Many just use their Sametime contact list as a method of looking up contact details, or seeing whether someone is online. But there are some great features of the Sametime contact list that enable you to easily address messages, meetings, To-Dos, and even utilise the contacts from wi

Mon, Feb 10th 2014 8:35p   Mat Newman
This year at Connect I presented a session "IBM Worklight for IBM Domino Developers". The idea was to show Domino Dev's how easy it was to transition from creating pure browser-based applications utilising XPages with the Extension Library + Mobile Controls that are included natively with Domino 9 to creating a native application utilising IBM Worklight which has IBM DOMINO as the back end data service. There were three demonstrations included within the presentation: Building a mobile

My Top 5 reasons to get to IBM Connect 2014
Wed, Jan 15th 2014 1:38a   Mat Newman
For the past few years, the trek to IBM Connect (Lotusphere) has become a pilgrimage for me. It was in the late 90's that I first heard of a conference dedicated to Lotus software held in the USA at the Swan and Dolphin in Orlando. I immediately added it to my Bucket List of "Must Do" things to achieve in my lifetime. Watching the Videos for the first couple of years (yep, I mean VHS cassettes) provided to us by our local IBM/Lotus reps I became very excited at the depth and breadth o
