20 Random Thoughts from Lotusphere 2012
Mitch Cohen    

Still trying to catch up from Lotusphere, until I get to some more detailed posts here are 20 random thoughts from this years event.

1. Manta at Seaworld is an awesome ride.

2. My bathroom was the most photographed bathroom at Lotusphere.

3. Lotusphere beat Mat Newman in round one, but he came back with a knockout punch in round 2 (even if he did try to blame me)

4. Darren Duke did not permanently ruin any of my favorite songs at Kimonos this year.. thanks Darren

5. Never having eaten a Pretzel Cookie myself I am not sure I get the obsession, though until this year I though they were universally loved, now I know otherwise.

6. In a bar at 1:30 in the morning Paul Mooney is evil.

7. After a terrific year last year the WiFi was terrible this year – the positive side of that I live blogged less than I planned and enjoyed the sessions more as a result.

8. Ask the Product Managers  terrific again, good questions, some humor, and good information.  Ask the Developers, not so much I have tired of this session and rarely go anymore (hint if you have a specific, in depth technical question visit the Meet the Developer labs all week, don’t save it for Thursday afternoon).

9. Way too many things happening at the same time during the week, you have to make tough decisions what to attend and what to skip.

10. Vendor showcase had a different feel this year, less shirts then ever before, but good to see some new faces, and a number of vendors exhibiting solutions for IBM Connections.

11. The Droid X battery held up well during the week with help from this, I learned this week that when the battery meter goes red there is still plenty of life left.

12. Great guest speakers this year Michael J Fox, Tim Berners-Lee,  Dr. Burns from Childrens Hospital of Boston, Manoj Saxena GM of IBM Watson.  It was all going so well until the closing session.

13. Always make time to spend in the Innovation Labs at Lotusphere, what they are showing this year in the Innovation Lab has a good chance of being a product/feature next year.

14. Stuart McIntyre travels with a replica of the Death Star.

15. The Giants should play the Packers in the playoffs every year during Lotusphere.

16. 89 sleep deprived geeks drinking beer on the Disney Fantasia Gardens mini-golf course and for the fourth year in a row no one was hurt, nothing short of a miracle.

17. OK Go, LS12, LS12u and OGS all trending on Twitter.

18. Never watch a football game with Mat Newman the beers keep coming at you faster than a Pez Dispenser.

19. No Laptop… No Problem

20. No I didn’t really do this on Sunday I just sat for the picture.

IBM Notes Traveler and support for iOS8
Tue, Sep 9th 2014 7:05a   Mitch Cohen
If you support an IBM Notes Traveler environment this question should be on your mind Looks like good news if you are reasonably current in your Traveler environment.  We have had a beta device connected to a 9.0.1 IF4 Traveler server and it worked with out any issue, I know I will be watching closely when Apple releases iOS8 to make sure everything keeps working. See the technote fo the Full Q&A including updates on Traveler Companion and To Do . Nice job by IBM getting this document pu [read] Keywords: ibm notes traveler apple server

Making Two Factor Authentication (even) easier
Thu, Aug 7th 2014 7:01a   Mitch Cohen
If you pay attention to the news you know you should be protecting your accounts with strong unique passwords, and two factor authentication wherever it is supported.  Two factor authentication improves your security by requiring (as the name implies) as second piece of information to authenticate which is usually a number generated by an app on your phone or received via text or email.  A while ago I posted this tip to make two factor authentication a little easier, now I want to follow that [read] Keywords: email google security

Fri, Mar 28th 2014 3:11p   Mitch Cohen

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
