A very happy fourth to those who are celebrating it today. Those of us in the states are likely out of the office, stoking the barbecues, and watching the fireworks as is tradition today.
For our global audience, we will return tomorrow with more of our technical content. Until then...

There have been a few queries asking why organizations should use at least one Team Area with all same members as in a Project, using IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC).
We have small projects only about 20 members per each and we don't need separate project members into teams.
--> The following details provide some basic information about Team Areas and their usage in RTC:

One of our own Technical Support Engineers and content creators has his own blog on developerWorks and is now delivering some great ClearCase specific information to help address issues he discovers in the course of his job supporting the product.
Pedro Luiz Teixeira de Moura is just getting started with his blog, but already has some quality posts in his back pocket of the archives for you to check out:

Here is another good lesson, among many that I happened to learn, while working with a customer using IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC). While this may not serve as a supported solution for the issue reported, perhaps it can serve as a pointer or guide on the types of things to look for.
I hope this gives some idea for users and the steps that can be taken, in case of a similar situation.

The IBM Innovate theme this year was "Stay Ahead", and being the new IBM Technical Summit, we saw some great innovation on the expo floor as well as within the multitude of sessions presented.
One of the big stand outs for me was the Liberty Car, a small RC Car modified to be controlled via WiFi using RaspberryPi hardware. The real innovation here is not only in the adaptability of the concept, but the truly low cost incurred (low cost being part of the Raspberry Pi mission). The combined adaptability and low cost make this a seriously accessible platform to begin messing about with and furthering the concepts which Hursley Tech Evangelist Tom Banks talks about in this quick two minute video with Innovate Social Host Katie Linendoll:
In this next short, 6 second Vine clip you can watch Katie driving the Liberty Car: http
For a more detailed explanation and deeper technical discussion, check out Tom Bank's blog post on WASDev.net. This post published in late April serves as an awesome FAQ that covers all the questions I heard being asked at Innovate (and admittedly the same questions I asked as well): http
What better way to stay ahead than by innovating at such an accessible level that anyone of any age can begin learning how to code and adapting hardware to meet new and different needs? To me, everythign about this simple concept embodied both the stay ahead theme as well as the driving ideas behin the new technical summit.
