Hey, this is my first post here for quite a few weeks, since last November in fact!
It’s not that I’ve been inactive or have nothing to say, just that recently my blogging efforts have largely been directed to writing articles for iTWire. But I do plan soon to refocus on writing more articles here (and on my other Blogger.com weblogs, listed at right).
IBM’s Lotus Software products are on a roll, not just for the re-architected Lotus Notes and Domino 8 but also for enterprise social software offerings and the very popular free Lotus Symphony office suite.
I’ve installed Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5 gold code and have repeated testing of my NotesTracker SDK to confirm (as with the two ND8.5 public betas) that NotesTracker works just fine with this latest Eclipse-driven Notes client release.
As well as regular writing, during the second half of 2008 I recorded a number of podcast interviews, see them listed here at iTWire.
I’ve been very much in a Lotus frame of mind during the last few months, so would like to draw your attention to the latest podcast uploaded that I’ve published just a few hours ago: IBM's Jonathan Stern outlines Lotus collaborative and social software strategy
In this podcast interview, Jonathan – who is IBM ANZ regional executive for Lotus Software – gives a wide-ranging outline of the Lotus communication and collaboration products.
Another podcast being prepared should be of a fair amount of interest to IBM and Lotus followers in particular. It’s with Michael Karasick, Director of IBM Lotus China Development Labs, who talks in depth about Lotus Symphony and other similar Lotus Software product development topics. So watch for it at the aforementioned iTWire podcasts home page.
Just to show that while I like Lotus I’m not totally one-eyed, look out for the last of the three interviews that I recorded in the weeks immediately before Christmas (and also to be published fairly soon), this one being with Greg Stone, Chief Technology Officer for Microsoft Australia.
Apart from podcasts, my regular stories for iTWire are in the section A Meaningful Look at Desktop and Enterprise Computing
And if you like puzzles, why not check out my contributions at the the iTWire TechWords Interactive Crosswords section. I really need a bit of encouragement/justification (by your visiting them, that is) before I decide to devote any more precious time to composing these technology-oriented word puzzles!
Eh bene, ciao bambini.
