I know it's spam or crawlers or other such nonsense, but if you don't mind, I'm just going to sit here and revel in it for a little while.
And if any of you are REAL people, you could leave a comment and say hi. And get a prize. :-)
I have 4, count 'em, FOUR Rational Support moo cards left from last year's conference, which I will give away on a first come, first served basis to the first 4 commenters on this blog.
But not to spambots.

Managing requirements across Analysis and Design phases using System Architect & DOORS
This document describes why requirements need to be tracked and also explains how tracking can be setup and managed.
The IBM Rational System Architect DOORS integration helps users create abstract views in System Architect based on the user requirements in IBM Rational DOORS. Having this integration will enable users to synchronize the model with the ever changing requirements. This document can be used as a reference for users who would like to map their requirements captured in DOORS to a modeling tool Rational System Architect. Also, there would be an information flow between DOORS to System Architect and vice-versa.
Using the document provided, users can map the requirements in
DOORS to the System Architect project encyclopedia and vice versa. As a
summary, this document can prove effective as a start point for new
users who are in the process of exploring this integration and its
Many thanks to authors Rajesh Avanthi and Praveen Sreenivasan!

Over on my personal blog, I posted last week about Building a better business: Hiring ducks and eagles for the right jobs.
In that post, I explored the personal experience and positive results of team hiring practices that focused on finding the right person for the right job. The net conclusion of that post being: "Hire to your needs, but also to the candidate’s strengths and abilities. It isn’t easy, but the rewards and your future success depend upon it."
But, I'd like to take that conclusion a step further now, since "future success" is a bit too nebulous for my taste.
From the social business perspective, hiring the ducks and eagles is a critical portion of our success, as people in the right job tend to be more motivated and passionate about what they do. It is this increased level of passion that is such an important building block of success in social business. Without passion, social business just becomes activities that fall flat, and your audiences will pick up on that immediately.
Social businesses with passionate employees, however, are thriving and forging new paths in the world around us. It is that passion which drive employees, either on their own or with slight urging, to get out in the social spaces and share their knowledge and excitement with others. While the passion IS infectious, it also needs to be cultivated.
That passion is either fostered or stifled long before the employee ever has opportunity to play in the social spaces. It begins during the hiring process: identifying and hiring to both your needs and the candidate's abilities right from the get-go builds that foundation to grow your company into the motivated and passionate social business you need. Hire a duck for an eagle's job (or vice versa) and you will stifle that passion. Likewise, put the duck in the right pond and enable the eagle to soar, and that same stifled passion now becomes a raging fire driving both to spread the excitement.
Your audiences can tell the difference between mere activity and authentic excitement, and they will treat your social business accordingly... Can you really afford to not hire the ducks and eagles?
I'll leave you with the video that inspired both post titles and over-arching topics: You Can’t Send A Duck To Eagle School:
