All this, of course, means your loyal blog admins are off galavanting (or just sitting on the sofa) and not actively working today. But that doesn't mean we don't have some good content for you! In this case, it is a new video from IBM Electronic Support guiding us all on how to download software from the Fix Central repositories. Take note, this video will come in quite handy after tomorrows blog post, so take a look and then stay tuned!

Ah, yes, it IS that time of year when many Americans roll out that one last big blow-out barbecue party before the summer comes to a close and we look toward welcoming winter, albeit a bit trepidatiously. While the holiday has indeed come to symbolize the end of summer for many of us (it isn't, summer doesn't end until September 22), it started and remains as an American federal holiday to honor the worker; a day when we recognize the contributions of the American worker by relaxing and eating lots of BBQ

Yup, we're still "working outside the inbox" here.
Along with Luis Suarez Kelly Smith and I continue driving and evangelizing the idea in hopes it will take hold and help create a new business culture of open, transparent, and collaborative work. To that end, I recently built a presentation now hosted on Slideshare to help illustrate our efforts as we documented them here in our Notes from Rational Support "WOTI" blog series. We've tried to distill the core concepts, ideals, and recommendations down to their essence and provide an easy to consume presentation. I hope you not only enjoy the presentation deck, but also find it helpful in your own quest to reduce email and increase your effectiveness.
