Special Thank you to all 6 of my readers -- and a happy birthday shout out to one....

In 12 years of Lotusphere I have never once been in Kimonos until tonight. Anyone who has suffered through my singing can tell you why this is the case. After an insane round of miniature golf in the "Blogger's Open" and then an amazing dinner with five great friends (Gab, Tim, Carl, Mike, and Sue) I was headed back to the hotel for bed when I decided to drop in at Kimonos. Those of you who know me also know that I don't drink much if at all.

All of these facts together make it even more astonishing to me that I had such a fantastic time at a karooke bar. What a great way to end a fantastic week with so many friends. I wasn't counting, but I'm pretty sure all six of you readers came up and talked to me this week. That brings me to my last comment of the evening. It turns out that one of my six readers is Eric, who is having a birthday. Some of you may have heard about this. Lets all join together and wish Eric a Happy Birthday.

Happy Birthday, Eric.

If your company has ditched Notes and Domino, I feel sorry for you. For companies that do use Notes/Domino this is a game changer and Apple should be paying attention. Here's why: There are hundreds of little Notes client applications you'd never spend the time and money to build and deploy for your internal user base on IOS that we use Notes for all the time (those of us still using it).

I read a really insightful post a couple of days ago that suggested the use of social network funding sites like “Go Fund Me” and “Kickstarter” have come about and gained popularity in part because the existing economy in no longer serving its purpose for anyone who isn’t already wealthy.
