I find that a little odd that a vendor
at Lotusphere would be taking that particular angle as a blog entry to
promote their product. But looking at all their blog entries, I see
the same pattern. People are defecting from Notes, so come talk to
us about our mail product. Hmm...
I commented on that post as follows:
I'm not sure I fully understand your
approach to marketing your product. You continually post on how poorly
Notes is doing in the marketplace from your perspective, yet you want us
to talk with you on buying a product that works on Notes. If I'm
to buy your original premise, then why would I even want to listen to anything
you're trying to say? You're setting up an immediate objection in
the mind of the potential customer, and then you're trying to fight that
Yes, IBM has a number of things to
work on. But I'm not convinced that your style of marketing will
do anything to get them any closer to the position you hope they achieve.

Book Review - Judaism For Dummies by Rabbi Ted Falcon PhD and David Blatner
Sun, May 12th 2013 7:40p Thomas Duff This was a book that I had put on my
library "to be read" list, but decided that getting it via Amazon
Vine was faster and better... Judaism
For Dummies by Rabbi Ted Falcon
PhD and David Blatner. I felt this was a *perfect* example of what Dummies
titles are good for... context on a complex topic, enough so that you know
where to go for more information. Toss in a fair amount of humor along
the way, and I had a great time reading this (while learning lots).

Book Review - Tell No Lies by Julie Compton
Mon, May 6th 2013 8:40p Thomas Duff Tell
No Lies by Julie Compton is the
first of a series (two so far) of novels centered around District Attorney
Jack Hilliard and his fellow lawyer and one-time lover Jenny Dodson. That's
"one-time" as in "slept with her once", but it happened
at a time and under conditions that made the two of them front-page news.
Dodson was put on trial for murder, facing the death penalty. Hilliard
was her alibi, as the night of the murder was the night he visited her
house. He's convinced that [read] Keywords:
Book Review - Storm Kings: The Untold History of America's First Tornado Chasers by Lee Sandlin
Sat, Apr 27th 2013 10:09p Thomas Duff Tornados... powerful, fearful, unpredictable...
and a source of controversy over the years as people tried to figure out
what they are (or if they even existed). Lee Sandlin tells the story of
those who first tried to solve the puzzle in his book Storm
Kings: The Untold History of America's First Tornado Chasers.
I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would, but it could well
be due to incorrect expectations rather than the fault of the content or
quality of the writing. I'll [read] Keywords: connections
Book Review - Six Years by Harlan Coben
Tue, Apr 23rd 2013 6:06a Thomas Duff I picked up Harlan Coben's latest novel
Years from the library a week
or so ago. I enjoy his books, and I was looking forward to a few days of
leisurely enjoyment. What I got instead was a book I had a hard time putting
down, as Coben kept me guessing right up to the end. Granted, I read a
lot and don't necessarily do a good job of being able to remember plots
and story lines of books I read even six months ago. Still, this is one
of the best non-Bolivar novels he's written.
Book Review - Calculated In Death by J. D. Robb
Sat, Apr 13th 2013 8:49p Thomas Duff Yay... another J. D. Robb (aka Nora
Roberts) novel... Calculated
In Death. This time, Dallas is
tagged on a woman's death that looks to be a mugging gone bad. Her body
is found on the street at the base of a set of stairs leading up to a building
in the midst of remodeling. But Dallas and Peabody find evidence that she
was actually killed inside, and the street scene was staged as a diversion.
Further investigation reveals that in her job as an auditor, she had just
been given three new [read] Keywords:
Book Review - Keep No Secrets by Julie Compton
Sat, Apr 13th 2013 3:20p Thomas Duff I've not read anything from Julie Compton
before, but the premise of her latest book Keep
No Secrets sounded like a interesting
novel. Since it's a sequel to Tell No Lies, I got that one from the library
intending to read that first before this one. But too many books and forgetfulness
found me starting Secrets first without remembering the sequence. No matter...
Once I got started, this was pretty much a "won't put it down"
story. I'll be starting Tell No Lies tonight. :)

Book Review - The Racketeer by John Grisham
Sun, Apr 7th 2013 2:16p Thomas Duff I'm stepping back into the John Grisham
stream with his latest novel The
Racketeer. It's been a while since
I've read a Grisham novel, mostly because my enjoyment of his work seemed
to be on a good/bad/good/bad cycle. For whatever, The Racketeer caught
my eye when it was put into circulation at the library. Having finished
it this weekend, I'm more inclined to want to catch back up with his books.
The Racketeer was pretty good...
