Open Mic Time with the Calendar Team
Thu, May 9th 2013 7:05p notesgoddess What are you doing next Wednesday? That’s May 15. At 11:00 AM EDT?
Why don’t you join the Notes C&S team for an Open Mic call? It’s hosted by Andrea Mitchell and Todd Bailey who will talk about tips and tricks they’ve learned, then open the floor for your questions.
As usual, we will coerce some of the developers out to answer questions and much of the rest of the L2 crew will be in the meeting chat answering any questions you want to throw in there.

My Week in Boston
Sun, Apr 21st 2013 7:25a notesgoddess This is the second attempt at a blog about my week in Boston. I won’t tell you what happened there because you already know. Here are my details. I had planned to visit my colleagues in Littleton from Sunday to Tuesday, then speak at the ViewAdmin 2013 in Cambridge from Wednesday until Friday. That happened. I was in the lockdown area near the police shootout with the bad guys. I got home on Friday night after the roughest, most turbulent flight I’ve ever been on – and I’ [read] Keywords: facebook
Where I find my Inspiration
Fri, Mar 22nd 2013 8:25a notesgoddess There are times when I get down, lose my energy and inspiration. We all do. I look around and often find inspiration in unusual places. This week, I found it in my young grand-nephew Tyson. He and his family took their first-ever airplane ride to Texas. He and his brother Eli learned among other things that yes, tumbleweeds are real and - oh by the way, they have thorns. I learned something from young Tyson, too.
This first picture is my favorite actually. He’s aboard the S [read] Keywords:
Send the Elevator Back Down
Mon, Feb 11th 2013 4:45a notesgoddess In 2004, Ed Brill took a chance on me. He approved my friend Kathleen McGivney and me to speak at Lotusphere 2005, doing a Domino Administration Jumpstart. Kathleen and I both did presentations as part of our Field Support Engineer jobs and we’d spoken at smaller conferences, but let’s face it, Lotusphere is the big stage for the community we’re in. Kathleen and I work great as a team and we did so well on that session that we not only presented it that year, but at least twice more, [read] Keywords: administration
Thank you to the people who made IBM Connect 2013 a hit
Sat, Feb 2nd 2013 7:45a notesgoddess I arrived in Orlando this year after driving the 8 hours by choice. I arrived a day early to get myself ready for what many in the ‘community’ saw as the end of Lotusphere. I knew it would be stressful for many, including me. I’m an insider, so I knew the messages that were on the way and wondered how they’d be received.
On Saturday, I watched the community soccer/flag football party on the beach, greeted the incoming arrivals, collected a thousand or more hugs, then participated i [read] Keywords: ibm
I’m so excited! Its IBM Connect 2013 time!
Tue, Jan 22nd 2013 6:25p notesgoddess I’ve been holding back the excitement so far, but I can’t help it how – its nearly time for IBM Connect 2013. 2 days before I head out to Orlando! I’ve been working hard on the Best Practices track, helping calm nervous speakers, herding the cats into submitting slides, editing, posting. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes to make it all work. At times, from inside and out, it looks like a train wreck, and often it almost is. All of the track managers [read] Keywords: ibm
When will we be notified about sessions?
Thu, Nov 29th 2012 7:05p notesgoddess When are those notifications going out? Heard anything about my session? Hey, when will we be notified? Hate to bother you, but – can I ask about my session? I know you’re busy…
This is a sample of the skype chats popping up for me in the last couple of days. The internal emails and Sametime chats are getting insane.
So what are we doing? This is the time where the track managers get real. We have trading sessions. It goes something like this:

Anybody want to talk about abstracts?
Thu, Oct 11th 2012 8:22p notesgoddess As you know, its the run up to Call for Abstracts for IBM Connect 2013. And as you are staring at the calendar wondering when the call will go out, let me say that the answer is ‘soon’. But why wait? If you plan to submit, write the abstract. Use 75 words to say what you want to talk about. It may take several tries to get it to short enough. And that’s 75 words.
That paragraph above is it. All you get to work with. A few sentences. Practice.

Thoughts on changing a conference name.
Sun, Aug 26th 2012 3:22p notesgoddess I thought I’d take advantage of the time between the unofficial blog/twitter discussions about the change of name from Lotusphere 2013 to IBM Connect 2013 and the official reports that will surely come out early this week
As many of you know, I’ve been the track manager of the Best Practices track for 2 years at Lotusphere. I don’t know if I’ll be asked to do it again – but given that the track trounced all the others for those years, I’m thinking I may pl [read] Keywords: ibm
