Hanging out in the live blogging channels at Lotusphere Live. It’s kind of like being there, but only textually.
More cool stuff than I can take in… Lotus Connections (Ventura), Lotus Quickr, Google Gadgets running in WebSphere Portal, composite applications…
I’m going to watch the replay of the opening session in Second Life tomorrow…
Some of my favourite comments from the live blog, reporting the announcements live from the conference floor:
Notes 8 supports SmartSuite docs as well as Office and OpenOffice
integrated RSS feeds in Notes 8 sidebar
(Lotus Connections) has integration with profiles, internal blogs, sametime, dogear, tags, communities, activities
(…) showing blogs in Connections — blogs becoming a commodity capability in all IBM Lotus products
(on Connections) This demo reminds me more of LinkedIn thatn MySpace or FaceBook, which is very good
(…) MySpace and FaceBook, being discussed now, are not good for corporate use, but many corporations scan them for content posted by potential employees, and have retracted job offers based on what they have see.
