ND8.0.1, Widgets, Twitter, and a new Domino blogger

I spent my lunch hour today updating my Notes client (now running 8.0.1) and playing around with widgets in the sidebar. Great stuff!! I can immediately see the business benefits to getting users to live outside of their inbox - and those of us who setup mail-based workflow engines can look to alternative notification methods as well as entry-points into our applications - we now have a plug-and-play framework so there's no excuse!

Looking to play around with the technology (while in the final days of the ITSO residency, I don't have the cycles to *write* any examples myself), I setup TwitNotes and suggest that you do the same (awesome work Mikkel). This of course had me creating my own Twitter account, so "add me" as a Twitee if you're so inclined.

Speaking of adding, I'm more than happy to announce that one of my long-time friends and fellow yellow bleeder has decided to get off his ass get inspired enough to start his own weblog: Erskine Harris, said yellow bleeder, is a smart guy and a good developer (even if he occasionally listens to me for advice).

More updates later... maybe even via Twitter!
