Announcing the C.U.L.T. Shirt 2010 Winner

By Andrew Pollack on 01/23/2010 at 03:42 PM EST

It was great fun producing the C.U.L.T. shirt this year again, and one of the best parts of my job doing that is awarding the prize.

This year, we moved the selection of the winner to just before the closing session. This gave people more time to get their shirts and also works better than having to wear just a t-shirt on the sometimes cold or wet nights of the Wednesday party. Somewhat ironically, this year was the best weather for that party I can ever remember -- but the plan was still better.

A few minutes before being allowed into the party, my spotter for this year was told to close her eyes, turn around, and when she opened them point to the first person she saw wearing this year's C.U.L.T. shirt. Karma being what it is, this year continued our trend of always seeming to pick really cool and highly deserving people -- even if we are doing it somewhat randomly. That's probably influenced by the high probability of anyone AT Lotusphere and wearing a C.U.L.T. shirt being inherently cool and deserving.

Congratulations to Abby, for winning this year's prize -- An iPod Touch 8GB perfectly suited to using on her wireless network with Traveler.

Abby is a Lotus Principal CLP from the United States and was most gracious and excited to win the prize. Her smile made our day too.

In twenty five years, I don't think I've ever written an entry like this, but if you need the kind of work I do now would be a great time to get in touch. Both of the big projects I had lined up for late summer and early fall have been placed on hold and will be that way for a while.

IBM has made a deal under which the Notes & Domino software and intellectual property is now being developed and maintained by HCL America. HCL America is part of the very large "HCL Technologies" company that has grown from its roots in India to become an 8 Billion Dollar company with a global presence in the IT Industry. You could be excused for initially believing, as many people do when they hear this, that "they've outsourced the code to India where they'll milk it ......

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). Now, those are suddenly ALL available on the iPad. ......
