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
