Jake wins

by Volker Weber

Jake Howlett wins the Lotus User Group Blogger Award 2007 for codestore.net. I am very happy that Jake won this award, since he is way way above anybody else. Jake has been publishing his site for eight years now, and he has demonstrated many times over that Domino sites can work as users expect them to. I think it speaks volumes that Jake has won this award despite his outspoken dislike of Notes. Jake is no evangelist. He adds value. Thank you, Jake.


Who are LotusUserGroup.org these days and what do they do?

I genuinely thought it had folded when Libby moved on...didn't realise it was still going, don't appear to have heard anything from them for quite some time.

Thanks Volker. Very nice of you to say those things!

In my "speech" I said I was amazed that I won and you've highlighted why. If it had been an official award without the people's vote I don't think it would have gone the same way. Cynical old me also thought there would be some vote rigging going on. Hence my amazement.

Who are LotusUserGroup.org these days and what do they do?
They’re a group of people interested in Lotus technologies and they run a user group.

They got it "spot on" with this award.

I was upset however about missing the chance to finally meet you (Volker) face-to-face last night. I was dissapointed to say the least when I realized that I had missed you!
