Lotus Products that are missing blogs

July 23 2008

So with the introduction of the Notes Design Blog, we now have 7 official IBM blogs (sorry Alan, you no longer count :) ) on the PSC external blog server. They include:

We also host IBM blogs for

Now, I know we are not the only place that IBMers blog, but we get a lot of the IBM products teams. But we are missing some:
  • Lotus Quickr
  • Lotus Protector
  • Lotus Foundations
  • Lotus Symphony
  • Lotus Traveler
  • Lotus Domino Document Manager
  • Project Atlantic
  • Lotus Forms
  • Lotus Web Content Management
  • Lotus Workflow

So while I am making a public offer to any of those teams who would like to start blogging to host their site, we should encourage all of these teams to blog wherever they decide to go. If you know anyone on these teams, please, ask them to start blogging. And feel free to point them to me to host.

    Bilal Jaffray from the Foundations team is blogging: { Link }

    Don't think it makes sense for there to be a Traveler blog - it's a Domino feature, not a separate product.

    Project "Atlantic" is one of my team's products. Due to the nature of the joint development, it is unlikely there would be much to blog prior to its initial product release. I can ask the rest of the team. Lotus Protector is also one of my team's products...I can see that team getting into blogging, again once they ship.

    There's also at least one other on your list that doesn't make any sense since the product is in maintenance mode...you might as well have put SmartSuite on there too :-P

    Hmm. A Lotus Workflow blog. Now there's an idea. I wonder if www.tumbleweed.com or www.nothinghappeninghere.com are available ...

    Your customers don't consider that product in maintenance mode Ed ... neither should you.

    I meant lotus workflow, John. You decided I meant something else, that I did *not* say.

  5. 5) John Head says:

    your right Ed ... just was me in a moment of pure anger over ILDDM ... understood about workflow. But your comment might not have been about ILDDM, but that is what I hear from others.

    Ed, John,

    So where should workflow customers be looking, going?

    I thought the Symphony folks blogged on { Link } - does that count?
