The C.U.L.T. Shirt preliminary design plan has been chosen!

By Andrew Pollack on 10/14/2008 at 09:15 PM EDT

In a secret meeting held deep beneath the surface of the earth, protected from the sophisticated eavesdropping gear used against us, Lotus Geek and I met to discuss the shirts for Lotusphere 2009.

We held a planning session with the aid of some good friends -- one of whom is a former candidate for the Nobel prize for fashion and design, another of whom is a graduate from the Sorbonne with a degree in humor, a masters degree in wit, and a PhD in repartee, and a third -- who's presence was unknown even to the other two, and may be also known elsewhere as The Stig.

The actual design is locked somewhere so frightening that not even those present at the meeting would dare tread. Deep within my own mind. The discussion of the design however, has now been agreed and we're moving forward. I could tell you all what it is, but then I'd have to remove your internet access.

I can tell you that we're very close to opening the unofficial top ten list for your suggestions, and that we think you'll have plenty of them.

I can also tell you that at current count, we have 8 sponsors already committed -- so there's a good chance you'll get a shirt if you show up.

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. ......
