I’m happy to announce that I have been hired by Lynda.com to author a video series entitled “Up and Running with IBM Connections”. I have been collaborating with IBM’s Luis Benitez on this effort and he has been great to work with. My producer at Lynda, Jonathan Sears is awesome as well. I have to say that the experience has been amazing. A huge hat tip also to my friend Jess Stratton for hooking me up with Lynda.com and for being an amazing coach and resource. Stay tuned.

Following up on the IBM Mail.Next poll I conducted a few weeks ago, I now want to ask you again to take the same poll, now that you have seen much more about Mail.Next on today’s webinar.
On Friday I created a poll to gauge the IBM ICS communities interest in the forthcoming IBM Mail.Next product/service that was announced at IBM Connect 2014. Here are the results:
I will be conducting a second poll after the April 23rd webinar IBM detailing the progress of the Mail.Next offering. So, what are your thoughts about the poll results?
In just a few weeks IBM will be providing an update on Mail.Next which was announced at IBM Connect 2014. Based on what you know so far about Mail.Next, how interested are you in this new Mail app?
The results of the poll will be shared soon.
