Episode 28, recorded Friday 26th November 2010, discussing reasons to be thankful, Connections 3.0 GA, Transformer demo, 'classic' applications, XPages performance in the Notes client, the new XPages URL Shortner and more...
Please note: we have started to put times in the show notes for when we start to discuss each topic, in order to make it easier to fast-forward through the show to the topics that are of particular interest. If you would like us to produce an enhanced podcast (AAC format) version of the show with multiple chapters to cover the individual chapters, please do let us know.
Also, we have made the decision to move to recording this show on Thursdays from this point forward, in order to allow additional time to get the podcast produced and still release on a Friday in time for the commute home (in Europe and America at least). Hope this meets with your approval!

Thanksgiving week - what is your 'reason to be thankful'? (04:24)
Lotus Connections 3.0 GA (07:12)
First available to customers, then partners - what were they thinking? ;-)
Keep an eye out for the new book “Mastering XPages Development” (Amazon UKUS) due out in time for Lotusphere 2011 and should be on the bookstall. Written by Martin Donnelly, Mark Wallace and Tony McGuckin with technical review by Maureen Leland and John Mackey.
My tip is about social software. Focus on collaboration, on improving your daily activities. It’s about business value, not a social cool tool.
Use Lotus Sametime.. awareness to see if people are available, send message to see if they can accept your interruption.
This has been said before in TWiL, but Evernote is amazing. I’m using it to sync “notes” between several Windows laptops, my Galaxy S Android phone, my BlackBerry Tour and my Galaxy Tab Android Tablet. I store things like wifi passwords, etc and have them accessible no matter the device I’m one.

TWiL - The show must go on!
Sun, Mar 16th 2014 11:51p Stuart McIntyre In response to lots of kind words from our listeners, Darren and I are continuing to produce This Week in Lotus on an occasional basis... Whilst there are really no IBM products left that enjoy the 'Lotus' moniker, there is definitely a 'Lotus community' that survives. Given the closeness of the friendships and the enduring sense of kindred spirit, I have a feeling that we'll still be gathering in person and online many years after all installs of Notes and Domino have long since been r [read] Keywords: collaboration
