The impact of current tech trends on XPages and SharePoint

October 8 2013

I found this great presentation on slideshare that talks about the "50 Mega Trends Affecting Every Business - Power statistics about tech" and thought I would share it. 50 Powerful Statistics About Tech Mega Trends Affecting Every Business from ValaAfshar The trends are grouped into five areas: 1. Mobile 2. Social 3. Cloud 4. Big Data 5. Apps I think all of these are impacting anyone doing custom development today. XPages, SharePoint, Salesforce, Python, etc. And interesting reminder of how the greater tech trends effect each developer personally.

My social media breakthrough: How my father’s passing shaped my feelings on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus

July 8 2011

As I process everything that has happened in June, I am starting to pick out a few lessons learned that I can remember and apply to my life. One of those lessons is around social media engagement. It just happens that I identified the lesson just as Google Plus was launching. Actually, the first 48 hours of my usage of Google Plus really hammered it home. Let me explain. On June 1st, the day my father has his heart attack, I posted a single note on Twitter about it. That posting made it to Facebook (because I auto-populate my tweets to Facebook).

I then wrote the blog entry and it made it's way to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIN, and all of the other social networks I barely use (Buzz, FriendFeed, etc). I then posted that blog entry on my Dad's page. Outside of Facebook, Twitter, and that blog entry, the only other communi

Follow the Product Managers and Executives on Twitter - this is for Marie and Stuart :-)

February 7 2011

Before and during Lotusphere 2011, there have been some discussions about how to engage with the IBM Lotus Executives and Product Managers outside of the stage and event. There has been some discussion on if this is needed, and I get Ed's point, but it is always good to engage with folks on a regular basis. I thought it was very interesting that the IBM executives new to the social software team (i.e. Lotus) , Sandy Carter and Nigel Beck ( I love how his url directs to his about.me page ), are both very active in social media with their own personal brands. You can even use Tungle with Nigel - the first IBM VP I have seen do that. So to facilitate this interaction, and in Marie and Stuart's honor, I have created two public Twitter lists. IBM Lotus Ask the Product Managers: A list for any IBMer who is a Product Manager in the Lotus space IBM Lotus Executives: A list for anyone on the management team in the Lotus space These are meant to grow over time, so please let me know if we
