We are thrilled to announce that we've just hit a major milestone .... we've recently logged 1 million visits to Notes from Rational Support! Yes, ONE MILLION VISITS!
Started in early 2009 as a part of an experiment in social business and proactive support, it appears that Notes from Rational Support has proven to be a valuable resource. Our traffic metrics continue to show steady growth in visits, views, unique visitors, and new visitors, and that makes us VERY happy.
So, in honor of this milestone, we'd like to thank the folks who made it possible (and fret not, this will be shorter than an Academy Award acceptance speech):
And let's keep going! Our next goal is to move from the 7th most visited blog on developerWorks to the top 5 ... maybe this year?
From all of us here at Notes from Rational Support, THANK YOU!

The On-Demand Demo Guy has been busy!
This demonstration provides an overview of Rational Rhapsody Design Manager's capabilities to help teams collaborate, share, review and manage their Rational Rhapsody system engineering or embedded software design information within the overall product lifecycle. It shows how design information can be centrally located and accessed using a web client by the extended team or by a Rational Rhapsody client for system engineers and developers using Rational Rhapsody. A central location enables searching across design and lifecycle information to help locate information faster and assists in keeping the entire team informed of the current status of the design. The demonstration includes an overview on how with Rational Rhapsody Design Manager you can conduct design reviews that allow stakeholders to provide comments and visual mark-ups linked to the designs. Also demonstrated is how you can trace from designs to other lifecycle artifacts using Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) based linking and visualize relationships between designs and lifecycle artifacts through a dependency relationship diagram.

rationalwebguy Patrick O'Connor:
The Support Café is buzzing with activity Tuesday morning (Europe 3, Dolphin Hotel).
The Rational Client Support Airship outside of the Support Cafe (Europe 3, Dolphin Hotel).
Support Cafe sign and the Support Airship on the RIGHT as you come off the escalator - NOT the left as our map and blogs said (last minute move)!
And finally, the man himself, Patrick O'Connor. He'll be there all week!
