Tips:

Lisa: If there are managers & line of business people in your office who don’t “get” social, let them know about the Get Social Do Business podcast I host - fairly non-technical discussion of how people are using social tools to transform business
Darren: Matrox M9120 Plus LP graphics card. You can never have enough monitors, this puppy drives 4!
Stuart: Audio Hijack Pro for the Mac $32, free trial available. ‘Record any audio - three simple words to explain Audio Hijack Pro. Record from applications like iTunes, Skype or DVD Player. Record from microphones, Radiosharks and other hardware. If you hear it, you can record it.’ Used on This Week in Lotus!

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 domino ibm lotus notes community
