Jeff Eisen moving on from the Notes world

By Andrew Pollack on 02/17/2012 at 01:44 PM EST

Congratulations, Jeff!

Jeff Eisen who has been with the Notes core team for 18 years is moving on. It's a huge loss for those of us who love the core Notes and Domino platform, but it is a huge step forward for Jeff. He's announced he'll be the Chief Architect of Watson Core Technology (the team charged with making Watson do things on the commercial front that actually make money).

I've known Jeff a long time and say without the slightest hesitation that he's been one of the best people on the Notes team for many years. His approach has always been reasonable and customer focused and I cannot recall a case where he's been unable to fully explain why he believes a decision was the right one from a technical standpoint (and he's been willing to admit it was the wrong one on the rare occasion when that happens). While I haven't agreed with everything we've ever talked about, I've never had cause to doubt his diligence, integrity, or the thought process that went into his approach.

Good luck in your new role, Jeff.

* I sure hope the last one out turns off the lights *

Re-reading your words Andrew. Did you mean "willing" or "unwilling".

As written, sounds like I've never been willing to admit that we done wrong.
Maybe you have a point :-)

I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
