In most cases Ed Brill responds to Lotus topics. Maybe this does make Ed Brill a "social" person but not IBM as a company.
And without Ed Brill there probably would be total silence in IBM Lotus land. A fragile construct when communication depends on a single person in a 400.000 people company.

Why is there an expectation that IBM has to descend into a snake pit in order to be considered "social"?

I think I've been pretty explicit that I'm not going to be goaded, baited, or chided into participating in discussion on vowe.net. I'm happy to have a proper professional discussion. That doesn't happen here, unfortunately.

@Ed

That's a bold statement. From my perspective vowe.net is one of the most important places for proper professional discussions around what is going on within the Lotus world. Therefore I'd say your comment once more demonstrates why Lotus is in such deep s..t.

The relevance of the discussions on your blog we ain't need to discuss in detail.

Preaching to the choir is not going to gain you any converts.

Bill Dorge, 2011-01-13

Bill, I'm plenty willing to engage with other audiences. You'll find postings from me on iPad forums, Android forums, and of course the occasional random blog. Google will reveal all.

This site is still the choir.

@Ed, The issue is not where you engage, but why others do not...

Stuart McIntyre, 2011-01-13

I don't agree with that. You don't need 100% participation for a social business.

But the disappointment expressed by the email author is misdirected. The lack of IBM comment is not for lack of people who engage.

@Ed

Seems like you got goaded, baited, or chided into participating in discussion on vowe.net...

Nils Halvorsen, 2011-01-13

I don't fully agree. There are a lot, and I mean a lot of IBMers on Twitter actively engaging in a wide variety of topics. In the UK alone, specifically Hursely, there is a good sized group of people that are active in Energy Monitoring, Social Networking, MQTT, Linux and personal things like photography, sports and the environment.

Once in a while a shot rings out about how IBM does something poorly, but it is all constructive. Usually its around something wrong with Notes and it's usually the UI.

I fully agree with Henning, there would be crickets louder than the Lotus discussion were it not for Ed.

Ed, what makes you think that this mail is about you? You should know that you are probably the most accessible person in Lotus. But there are certainly more people who could enlighten us.
