Wanted to make you aware that the next phase of the 5 star rating/tagging pilot is now live, with a new Highest Rated section now available in the Overview Top Ten portlet of the IBM Support Portal.
Currently 5 star ratings are being piloted in Rational ClearCase and DOORS products. We will be adding more products to the pilot in the coming months.

Get on the KCS train! We've run the numbers, reviewed the data, and found the top support documents from last month. These are the docs which were most commonly reused over the course of our TSEs assisting with calls.
With our KCS (Knowledge centered support) ideals in mind, our reuse data tells us these docs should be of great benefit to you all.... We hope highlighting this content here will help you as well, and maybe even save you some time in resolving issues or finding the right answers...

It's really quite impressive, and well worth spending a few minutes on a Think Friday afternoon.
Makes me proud to be an IBMer.

Jazz.net have a great new video tour of Rational Requirements Composer Beta 2a and Lifecycle Linking.
We examine in this video some of the latest capabilities provide in Rational Requirements Composer (RRC) Beta 2a, including comment navigation, editing rich text, use cases, user-interface sketches and business process diagrams. From the dashboard, we also have viewlets that show the lifecycle status of the implementation of requirements, in Rational Team Concert (RTC) and validation using Rational Quality Manager (RQM) test cases. These requirements are also viewed as lifecycle links, in both the implementation and test plans.You can find more over at the IBMJazz YouTube channel. Enjoy!

The replay of the TED talk "Final Jeopardy! and the Future of Watson" is available here:
Host Stephen Baker, author of "Man v. Machine," discusses Watson's performance on Jeopardy!, and the possible real-world applications of this technology with a panel of experts. The panel includes: IBM Watson Principal Investigator Dr. David Ferrucci, IBM Fellow and CTO of IBM's SOA Center for Excellence Kerrie Holley and Columbia University Professor of Clinical Medicine Dr. Herbert Chase.
I highly recommend taking the 33 minutes and watching this panel discussion. Some amazing bits of information about Watson's early beginnings, challenges, and what the future may hold. Exciting stuff!
And how about some other links about IBM's Watson while we're at it... lots of great info here:
As you digest all the information from the links above, I'll leave you with this: Jim Powers, a Worldwide Technical Enablement Lead for IBM Software Group, Sales, gave us some fun and interesting insights after Wednesday night's final Jeopardy! game.
"I had the privilege of attending the Littleton lab event last night to watch Watson kick some (very smart) human butt with 300+ of my colleagues and their families. I was both impressed and proud (as was the rest of the audience), as we watched a machine about the size of several refrigerators make television history.
Some great food for thought there, Jim...
This week has truly been ground breaking for our understanding of what natural language processing can accomplish. I can't wait to see where this technology takes us in the future, both from the machine perspective personified by Watson, but also from the social-learning and social business perspective as Jim outlined. Exciting times!

The oh-so-wonderful Bob Leah announced a new minimalist dW blog theme available for dW early adopters, and as I can never resist a new bit of blogging shininess, we have jumped into the pool.
Bob has made it very easy to apply and customize the new template, even for someone like ME, who just knows enough HTML/CSS to be dangerous.
I love the new look ... what do you think?
