I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been accepted to speak at both IamLUG (North American Lotus User Group) and MWLUG (Midwest Lotus User Group) this August. Both are great events with some awesome speakers.

I made it easy for myself and I’m presenting the same topic at both conferences:

Make IBM Lotus Quickr sexier

In the session, I’ll introduce you to some innovations that make Lotus Quickr even more valuable to your teams, including tagging and integration with external sources using Adobe Flex and Air.

These together with the two Collaboration University conferences kick off the conference season that ends with Lotusphere in January 2010.

Hope to see you there!

From Rob Novak’s blog:

I’m pleased to welcome two new faces to Collaboration University 2009 to help us kick off the most exciting year we’ve ever had for CU! With Sametime 8.5, Connections 2.5, and Quickr 8.2 all hitting the streets this year – and with the major technology changes there and in the near future, it’s great to have IBMers back this year to keynote the event and give us a heads-up on Lotus’s ¬†strategy in the Web 2.0 space.

A picture named M2 In Chicago, we’ll hear from Louis Richardson, Lotus Worldwide Sales Executive for Lotus Collaborative Document Services. Louis, at IBM the past five years, has been instrumental in helping get the word out about Collaboration University inside IBM, where all the events, dates and even links on the IBM website are helpful. I’ve known Louis for several years and know he will be an exciting and insightful speaker. Besides, anyone who gives me a picture on a sailboat has to be cool.
A picture named M3 In London, we’re joined by Darren Adams, Messaging and Collaboration Business Unit Executive for North East Europe. Which, as it turns out, includes the UK, Ireland, Switzerland and Austria (fairly south and west for northeast!). Many of you know Darren from his blog at www.dadams.co.uk where, among other things, he shares his insights on Lotus software. Darren was recently promoted to this very long title, so please congratulate him when you see him in London! Dareen’s a long time friend of Collaboration University, having helped out with arrangements a little more each year.

Please join us in Chicago and London to learn about the strategy and direction of Lotus’s Web 2.0 lineup of software – Quickr, Sametime and Connections!

Just weeks after the research & development labs at SNAPPS released PandaBear, we are introducing Flippr (Beta) for Lotus Quickr services for Domino.

Where PandaBear is aimed at end users for uploading, downloading and locating files from/to your Quickr server, Flippr is aimed at administrators. The application makes everyday Quickr admin tasks a breeze. Some of the functions that you can accomplish with Flippr are:

  • Lock and unlock places
  • Create and remove places
  • Archive places
  • Add persons and groups to places
  • Rename person and groups in places

Flippr is using a friendly interface including type ahead for selecting places, people and/or groups from the server or LDAP directory. It also features three intuitive screens.

  • On the Commands screen, you get tree-style navigation of the most common QPTool commands.
  • On the XML screen you create your own XML to upload to the server. For the advanced cases where you want to do send in many commands at the same time.
  • On the Settings screen, set up your connection to server(s), check for updated versions and check the latest release notes.

Designed on the Adobe Air framework, Flippr runs on Windows, Mac or Linux using the same application code. Just as PandaBear, Flippr features automatic check for newer version and will download and install it with a one click operation.

Flippr is free during beta, and is not time-locked or disabled in any way. Post-beta plans are still under consideration.
