Welcome to my new home –

After almost 3 years and over 400 posts at Blogger, I decided it’s time to leave the nest, and join the ‘big-boys’ playground. Welcome to my new website – !

Welcome to my new homeI’ll write later this week about the migration process and the steps I took moving from Blogger to WordPress, was relatively easy. If you’re reading this via your favorite RSS Reader, please make sure you’re subscribed to the new feed I’ve updated feedburner, but you can never be 100% sure..

My first blog post was on January 17 2007, where I wrote: I wanted to open a blog for some time now, as part of this ‘web 2.0′ trend that’s flooding the web and the IT/Business scene, but there was always something else in my to-do list… already there are over 55 million of them, so what is one more blog?

The blogosphere has changed a lot these past 3 years, and the playing field has become tougher, with the rise of micro-blogging tools as twitter, and social networking sites like facebook, which makes it easier to share your life with people, and create content. Many have announced ‘the death of blogging‘ and ‘rss is over‘ in the past, but I liked what Steve Rubel wrote 6 months ago, Blogs are out of Beta, but Bloggers should always be in Beta:’ Blogs are the new normal, everything is a blog… Bloggers, as pioneers, should always be in beta, seeking to grow and advance our beloved format, rather than be complacent.

This blog was the first step I took in the public world, my lifestream in a way, and it contributed a lot to where I am now and where I’d like to be in the future. So blogging may be mainstream now (facebook is one giant blogging platform with 350 million users, no?), but we, bloggers, will always remain ‘early adopters’.

There are some people I would like to thank, and I’ll start with you – my readers, for staying loyal, commenting, creating a discussion, sharing and spreading my content. I’d also like to thank my followers, for responding quickly to my tweets with solid feedback, making the task of blogging much more fun. And last, to Sharon Gefen, WordPress guru, that helped me bring life to this site, in 30 guided minutes instead of 4 lonely hours, sometime between midnight and 3am – thank you, you’re the best!!

If you have something to say, shout back in the comment.

IBM’s Commitment to Lotus Notes/Domino

My friend Alan Lepofsky, who’ll be keynoting our Lotus Collaboration Event on March 20th, wrote an excellent post on ‘The Cure for Fear of Commitment‘. Ed Brill also mentioned Alan’s post. Alan posted this in response to a customer’s CIO asking how committed IBM/Lotus is to Notes/Domino family. Instead of sending an email, he posted his thoughts and hard proof on his blog, for all to see and use. Highlights from Alan’s post:

At Lotusphere 2008, IBM announced:



  • Calendar enhancements including better iCal support and Group calendaring.
  • The future Domino Designer running in Eclipse. This will provide developers the modern UI they have been asking for, a ton of new features, including the new XPages design element.
  • A new “Web 2.0” makeover for Domino HTTP applications.
  • For the Domino server, simplifying Notes Identity management and authentication, options to replace Domino Directory with alternative LDAP directories, optimize and reduce attachment storage, further reduce I/O bandwidth, improved quality of service with the Domino Configuration Tuner (DCT), and Dynamic Group Policies.

* All future plans are subject to change!
