Lotusphere Comes to you in San Francisco will be April 16th!

If you were not able to attend the conference in Florida, or if you just want to find out more about what is going on in the last month this is a great experience. LCTY is also fantastic for making face to face connections with the community. Please be sure to register early this year!

If your city is not listed, please note that the local Lotus ITS from the PNW will be working with our partners to bring one closer to you… targeted cities planned, but subject to change are Sacramento, Portland, Seattle and Salt Lake City.  Please check with your local ITS and Sales team if you do not see a city near you.

The VIEW Magazine and a free article on Green and DAOS

When was the last time you reviewed The View?  They are the same ones that conduct the Admin and Lotus Developer conferences.  The view has been around for EVER and consistantly produced high quality, deep dive, technical articles on topics that provided value in managing and developing in my Lotus environment. 

They use to send them to me for distribution at all of the User Group meetings for free.  Now that we have gone mostly virtual..  I wanted to give them a good plug here and share with you that their most recent free article is a great one on Maximize the Green Benefits of Domino Attachment and Object Service (DAOS) for Notes and Domino 8.5

Carla Gillespie – Understanding Lotus Connections – Profiles and Dogears
Mon 02/23/2009 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Profiles helps you quickly find the people you need by searching across your organization using keywords to identify expertise, current projects, and responsibilities. You can find people based on things like the person’s name, their organization, location, reporting structure and interests. Profiles let you tap into the knowledge capital within your organization, and makes it easy to establish new business contacts. Profiles help you expand your personal network and Profiles help you develop and maintain personal relationships that span obstacles like reporting structure, department, geography, etc. Profiles typically include a person’s photo, reporting structure, name, pronunciation, the time zone the person works in, and information about the individual’s expertise and areas of interest.
