Collaborating in the Lotus Community

My latest for Intranet Journal is out now. Collaborating in the Lotus Community is an article I had planned months ago, so it became rather timely when the whole iPhone discussion and John Head’s call to action happened.

Hopefully the article is a great jumping off point for those new to the Lotus community. If you have someone who wants to expand their horizons, please point them to the article and also point them to John Head’s community slides.

I’m really proud to be a part of this community, and the more people we can have join us the better!

You may ask yourself, why do I care about any of this? Well the reasons are simple. By becoming part of the Lotus Notes user community you can easily gain access to some of the best minds ever to wield a Notes client. You can make contacts with these people, interact and learn a lot.

For me, if you join in the fun, I get to hear another voice, another perspective and ultimately we all wind up stronger as a community. It may be pure unbridled selfishness on my part, but in this case, I don’t think that’s a bad thing.
