We have seen this before

by Volker Weber

Carl reports that a Quickr Redbook has been cancelled. There are no Connections Redbooks coming either. Actually there are no Lotus residencies at all. No residencies, no Redbooks.

Ask your local IBM guy what is happening.

Why are you not linking your old entry? Because Carl is or is there a real reason?

There is no particular reason.

Spooky. Only yesterday I was wondering about this. Given that Notes 8 is out tomorrow, and the other pieces of the stack are imminent, the lack of Redbook residencies is nothing short of bizarre.

Maybe IBM are experimenting, relying on people reading the Composite Applications weblog, developerWorks, etc.?

woof ;)

Reading between the lines, it sounds like there is no budget for Lotus redbooks for the rest of the year.

Crazy when this year is seeing some huge new release from Lotus, that really need this kind of documentation. Somebody somewhere in IBM/Lotus land still doesn't understand the value in these things. I'm guessing they'd have to be someone not very technical or someone very very technical.

But nobody average like the rest of us.

Hhm,
one of my colleagues is *sitting* in a Lotus residency right now. Could be communication problems or an interlude due to musical chairs?

Steohan: Last time this kind of thing happened, IBM were very kind to indirectly call Volker and I liars. I'd be glad to be a liar again this time too.
