Lotusphere 2012 Departing Thoughts
Mitch Cohen    

Another Lotusphere is in the books. I have so many pictures and videos to sort through, session slides to download, notes to follow up on, and people to follow up with, but first sleep.

This was my 8th Lotusphere, and while I always appreciate the opportunity to attend, this year was a little different, and I am especially thankful I was able to attend Lotusphere 2012..

It is always hard to explain Lotusphere to those who have never been, part conference, part family reunion. It was incredible the number of people who stopped me this week, both friends, vendors, and complete strangers (as much as any lotusphere attendee can be a stranger) to offer words of encouragement and support over Elisa’s recent battle with cancer. All of your support is appreciated.

To my many friends who went out of your way to so something extra to make this past week just a little more special you know who you are. Thank you I miss you already.

My employer continues to see the value of Lotusphere and made attending possible again this year, thank you.

I said it before Lotusphere but thanks again to Elisa, and our support system our parents who made attending possible this year.

Big thanks to the weather for cooperating this year, no snow causing flight problems or creating one more thing to worry about at home.

Thanks to the Giants for winning their playoff game on Sunday one more little (OK big) thing that made the week more fun.

There is much more to be said and written about Lotusphere 2012 all of which will have to wait until after a lot of sleep, and the Giants game on Sunday.

CloudGOO – combine all of your cloud storage into one drive
Fri, Mar 28th 2014 3:11p   Mitch Cohen
I installed CloudGOO on my Android phone today (they say an iOS version is in the works), I love the idea of showing all my cloud based files across different services as if they were all together on one big drive.  CloudGOO also supports automatic upload where you can specify which service to use, or let CloudGOO decide based on the space you have available.

Pley – The Netflix of LEGO
Tue, Mar 25th 2014 8:10a   Mitch Cohen
My friend Daniel tweeted this link to me this morning about Pley, the “Netflix of LEGO” where you can borrow and return LEGO sets.  My first reaction was “That is Brilliant”, my second reaction was “until I have to return a set and spend hours searching the house to figure out where the kids lost all the pieces” [read] Keywords: twitter

IBM Connect 2014 By the Numbers
Thu, Feb 6th 2014 12:16p   Mitch Cohen
Here is a quick look back at IBM Connect 2014 by the numbers Photography I felt like I did not take that many pictures this year, as I left the big camera behind most of the time and stuck with my phone, at the end of the week I somehow ended up with  2251 pictures between my phone and camera. Here is my Flickr Collection for IBM Connect 2014 Steps Everyone knows you walk, and walk, and walk at IBM Connect here were my Steps per day as tracked by my Fitbit One Sunday – 18,428 Monday ̵ [read] Keywords: ibm twitter

Yes it is called IBM Connect now, and the Closing General Session wraps up around 4:30 in the afternoon, but the true closing session takes place many hours later when Mat Newman finally removes his badge (well has his badge removed).  The honor this year was given to Amanda Bauman.

Holes I Need Holes
Thu, Jan 16th 2014 12:12p   Mitch Cohen
(Yes the post title is a Seinfeld reference see below) One of my cardinal rules in life is ABC (Always Be Charging).  I like to keep my devices charged, and you can usually find me with a spare battery of some sort on me when I am out and about.   Much as I have tried to avoid Kickstarter, last year The Practical Meter caught my eye and I backed the project. I have been playing with it for some time now, and it is definitely helpful in making sure that when speed matters devices are charging [read] Keywords: application wiki
