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.

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. ......
