IBM developerWorks introduces My developerWorks - Social Networking via Lotus Connections

Looks like the cat is now out of the bag! IBM and the IBM DWadvancedDesign team have been working on a new Lotus Connections offering, this time taking the collaborative abilities of IBM Lotus Connections to the community:
Welcome to a new way to connect and interact with your fellow developers. With My developerWorks, create your own personalized profile and custom home page (My Home) to get instant access to the people, feeds, tags, bookmarks, blogs, groups, forums, etc. that you care about.
This is not YACI, as IBM has both - as I'd mentioned - taken the social network to the community as well as shown how an active, existing, and feature-rich environment such as developerWorks can adopt Lotus Connections. So far, so good!
The bad news? Yancy might be busy updating PlanetLotus.org with all of the newly launched Lotus-themed blogs!
I'm attempting to work with the DWadvancedDesign team to create a facility for existing bloggers to cross-post their content to a DW-based blog - allowing the existing blogger more exposure to the global Lotus Online Community beyond the yellow bubble while said blogger not having to do anything more than claiming their RSS feed. More on that when I have something to share!
Until then, check out My developerWorks, create your profile, and feel free to add me as a colleague/connection!
And if you don't have one already, this is the perfect excuse to start a weblog!
