Part 1. Introduction to Rational Application Developer
Once again, I have been freed from the tyranny of my inbox and calendar, and it is GOOD.
So, in spite of several hundred warnings to NOT DO IT, I initiated the steps to change my name at work. Lulling me into a false sense of security, I actually received mail in my new name for a couple of days before it all fell over and went boom.
Since Wednesday night of last week, I have not had access to my email or Lotus Notes calendar. Of course, I didn’t CARE on Thursday and Friday, because I wasn’t at work.
Then came Monday.
Yesterday morning, I panicked. Just a little. I went into the office, having no idea where I was supposed to be all day, nor what I was supposed to be doing. I missed meetings, I’m sure. And then there are those hundreds of emails piling up unread in my inbox.
Today, I find it liberating.
I’m freed from the tyranny of the daily grind, and forced to find other ways to share knowledge and communicate.
I’m picking up the phone (what a novel concept!). I’m getting up and walking down the hall to ask my question that way. I’m using our internal chat client.
Instead of living in my inbox, where I am interrupt-driven by whatever arrives there next, I’m living in our team wiki… making sure our project work is available to others, even if I can’t flood their inbox.
I’m more focused, less distracted, and my knowledge-sharing practices are improving.I think Luis might be on to something here.

Vacations. Beaches, Holidays...
One of my colleagues reports that he will be out of the office next week at the Beep Baseball World Series in Stockton, California: League games will stream live all week long. More information at: Boston Renegades.
Those of you in the Mass Lab area can catch the Renegades at the Northeast Beepball Championship in Waltham, MA on August 29.
