Just before Christmas two new communities launched on Lotus Greenhouse for Lotusphere and Connect
The communities have a wealth of useful bookmarks, wiki articles and other content. IBMers and Champions have been adding content over the last few weeks and will continue to build in that in the lead up to Lotusphere and during the conference. The communities are intended as an ongoing resource for attendees to use to get the most out of the conference. (If you have any further questions, there’s also a forum in the communities.)
There is also an Ideation Blog in the Lotusphere community. Here you can vote on existing BoFs you want to atttend. Also, following feedback from IBMers and the community on making the Ideation Blog more powerful as an example of Connections functionality, you can now also suggest and vote on new BoF ideas, some of which will get selected. There is no confirmation yet on numbers, but there will at least be a few. The deadline for BOF ideas is Friday 6th January so join the community and act fast!
It’s great to see this nice idea from IBM to drive the community which a number of people have invested time in developing. You’ll be able to meet some of those involved in setting up the community at the Social Lounges at Lotusphere as well as find more information about all things social. There are also other plans in the pipeline, so look for us at Lotusphere as well as keeping an eye on the community (for example, using the Connections app for mobile or other tools like iWildfire).
There is only 2 days left to get those ideas in - so get on over to the Lotusphere Community now and get your ideas in.
