New this quarter:
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.

The good folks at ibm.com have just released a new feature which displays the results of our Rate This Page surveys at the top of each document page, like so:
Now, you too can see what feedback has been received on our documentation. As Rate This Page surveys are received, the results are processed, and will be displayed for those technotes.
So this is a good time for me to repeat my call for feedback on the content you find and use on Rational's support pages on ibm.com. Your feedback helps us determine what content is useful and relevant, and what content is not ... so we can fix it! :-)
We're off to see the wizard!
Finally! The 2009 Rational Software Conference is almost here!
We've been primping and preening and prepping and polishing, and this weekend, Rational Support will join thousands of Rational Software fans in travelling to Orlando for what is SURE to be a fun and informative week.
Some stuff I'm looking forward to...
and MOST of all,
If you can't make the conference, hopefully you can follow along at home via the RSC@Home Keynote replays, a Remote RSC event near you, or just follow along HERE, where I'll be live-blogging the event.
AND, we have aflickr pool created. Please join and add your conference photos!
Looking forward to meeting you at the conference!
