These people should NOT be buying their own beers at Connect 2013.

Congratulations, IBM's latest Champions. It's great to see so many friends on this list, and also sad to see so many notable names missing. These people (and I'm including all the ones that didn't make the list but also contributed) do the lion's share of what should be IBM's job of documentation, QA, and training, and they do it all without being paid for it.

Without the people on this list and their peers who should also be, the product line would long since have died out from the minimal documentation and resources that IBM puts into it directly. Consider what it would be like to learn XPages, or how to install Traveler, configure DAOS, or setup ID Vault without the work of these people.

You should thank them repeatedly. They should not be buying their own beer at Connect 2013.

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
