Some thoughts on IBMConnectED 2015 from afar
Tue, Jan 27th 2015 12:40p   Stuart McIntyre
For the first time in 7 years, I’m missing the annual IBM ‘collaboration and social business’ conference in Orlando. Sadly this has also coincided with the conference being ‘down-sized’ somewhat and thus being deprived of the live video-streaming and playback support that it has had for the past 3-5 years. I’ve therefore been watching the event through the somewhat murky and confusing lenses of Twitter and PlanetLotus.  This has most likely led me to more th

OH: "The way to think of it is not to be sad that it's ending, but to be amazed that we got away with it for 20 years." #IBMConnectED #ls15 — Julian Woodward (@woowar) January 24, 2015 It's called Lotusphere. Deal with it. #ls15 #ConnectEd #socbiz @IBMSocialBiz pic.twitter.com/Rsg6tL4frQ — Alan Lepofsky (@alanlepo) January 25, 2015 (I’d buy that shirt in an instant…) Thanks to all at the conference that are sharing photos, tweets and posts.

My favourite audio utility gets a major update

Every single episode of This Week in Lotus (my goodness, I miss that show) that we recorded over Skype was captured using Rogue Amoeba’s Audio Hijack Pro. This Mac OS X app has always been phenomenally good at managing the audio inputs and outputs available to a Mac system, applying filters and effects, and then writing high-quality recordings out to just about any format you can name. However, Audio Hijack Pro has become a little long in the tooth over the past few years, with the last

Missing Lotusphere (IBM ConnectED)
Mon, Jan 19th 2015 7:47a   Stuart McIntyre
It’s about this time of year that thoughts in the IBM/Lotus community traditionally turn to Orlando, to the Dolphin & Swan hotels, and to IBM’s major collaboration and social business event of the year. From Lotusphere to IBM Connect to this year’s IBM ConnectED, the name hasn’t mattered too much (I still think of it as the ‘Sphere), it was the technology and the people that made the event what it is.  Thousands of geeks and business folks alike, flocking to

The Clue Train is back!
Thu, Jan 15th 2015 7:30a   Stuart McIntyre
For many in this industry, The Clue Train Manifesto was a seminal work in the evolution of the internet, and in many ways forecast the development of social media and social business. As I noted in my Social Connections session in Stockholm, it’s incredible both how prescient the site was (written back in 1999), and also how 15 years later, so many organisations are still failing to take note of the theses it offered. The Clue Train Manifesto book is front and centre on my bookshelves in

I have belatedly come across a fascinating 15-month old post by Esko Kilpi on ‘Emergence and self-organization‘: What takes place in open source projects is typically not the result of choices made by a few (powerful) people that others blindly implement. Instead, what emerges is the consequence of the choices of all involved in the whole interconnected network, “the connective“, as Stowe Boyd puts it. What happens does not follow exactly a plan or a design, what happens emerges.
