Besides the fact that Iris was just cool, I wonder what is going on here. You would think that Iris.com would point to notes.net or devworks or at least Lotus or IBM ... hmmm

    Why? Iris as a company doesn't exist anymore. It's like giving up the LOTS stock symbol. When the entity no longer exists, and the brand never existed in the market anyway, why would IBM retain any interest in iris.com?

    FYI your website is prompting for a twitter name and password

    Yep. Still prompting me, too. Noticed a couple of days again.

    Five years to do something useful with it:

    > Domain Name: iris.com

    > Created On: 03-Jun-1991 00:00:00

    > Expiration Date: 02-Jun-2013 00:00:00

    I see Ed's point. On the other hand, Ed, Iris IS a brand in the minds of some people, otherwise this blog post wouldn't exist. So why not point it somewhere? Maybe Lotus itself, or perhaps { Link } ?

    PS. John - that Twitter prompt is annoying.

    Yes yes, I know about the Twitter prompt. No idea what is going on. I will look at it tomorrow.
