Products & Applications
The idea is simple. At the start of your day - upon completion of your first task - create an entry highlighting what you did and whether you feel it was an efficient or inefficient use of your time. Based on several requests, you can also select the priority, apply categories, or even align your time against a project.
For Lotus Notes Client v8.0 and above, you can use the Time Tracker Widget to make this process even easier!
My Configuration-based Rich Text Mail Merge and Emailing Utility, Zephyr allows you to create rich, data-driven emails to support automated workflow - all via Microsoft Word Mail Merge-like architecture. Dear <firstname> allows you to personalize each email message not only to the individual recipient, but also to the individual application workflow event!
xCopy is a simple configurable xCopy client for the Lotus Notes client. By creating and defining xCopy Profiles, you can batch process your file backup or remote upload jobs. With the addition of the xCopy sidebar widget, you can easily kick-off these jobs, and modify both the xCopy Profiles and xCopy itself.

Promising (and from the above screen shot delivering) a clearner UI, faster page loads, News Feed filters, and even more point-release features, Facebook 1.7 for Blackberry is looking pretty slick, and this Bold user is looking forward to the rumored September release!
Of course, it's still not the Facebook for iPhone UX...

Nathan reminds us that next Tuesday, August 11th, 2009, is the 2nd Annual Yellow Day! What's Yellow Day? Well, Yellow Day is a day where every Lotus product geek is encouraged to evangelize their YellowBleeding - either through their dress, though contributions to and beyond the Lotus Online Community from the blogging and podcasting community, various social networks and social media (such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc.), through developerWorks contributions to the product forums and wikis, and even through contributions to community resources like OpenNTF. Some vendors last year stepped up to the plate and delivered some really impressive community and product offerings as well.
So why am I bringing it up here (especially when Nathan covered it so perfectly on his blog earlier today)?
Simple. I want those Lotus geeks beyond the yellow bubble to get the message. How? Well, those of you who use Facebook could certainly help! I've setup the Yellow Day - August 11th, 2009 - Facebook Event Link! Having this event in Facebook will allow us to easily Share the event with our geek brothers and sisters that don't participate in the Lotus Online Community, as well as act as a central location for Yellow Day photos, videos, and links that can be further shared beyond our community.
So, if you're a Facebook user, RSVP Attending to this event. Then Share it with your own contacts.
And, of course, don't forget to take your own photos, videos, and whatever links to fellow participating geeks across the globe and contribute to the Event page.
Oh, and of course stay tuned for a few Yellow Day announcements from me...

The IBM Lotus Information Development Center has been hard at work with not only highlighting community member education through social networks and services like Twitter, Facebook, and even YouTube, but they've also created a LotusTechInfo Landing Page on the IBM Lotus Developer Domain.
While the community itself is resides on IBM Greenhouse, this Landing Page will remain as public.
Incidentally, if you do not yet have an IBM Greenhouse account, feel free to sign-up and enter Joyce Davis as your IBM Contact.
From there, you will easily be able to access/join the IBM Lotus Technical Information and Education Community.
Want to know what the IBM LTIEC is all about without having to sign-up for a Greenhouse account? Check out the Landing Page and find out who we are working within and beyond the community to build both Lotus portfolio knowledge as well as business contacts.
And if you have a blog or site where you already contribute to this community, check out the developerWorks Author Achievement Recognition program and learn how you can re-purpose your tips and tricks, have them gain a more global audience, and better establish your subject matter expertise.

Friday night/Saturday morning Facebook - the most heavily adopted and active social networking community online (at least since the last time I checked) - finally offered vanity URLs. I jumped at the chance to grab http://www.facebook.com/christoohey. Thus I've updated my contact information which can be seen on the right-hand column of the DominoGuru.com website. If you haven't done so already, grab your own vanity URL (and while your there, feel free to Friend Request me).
In the past few months, I honestly find myself spending more time on Facebook than I do on this website or across the other various social networking sites. This is due in part to it's flexibility and near-constant evolution as well as the limitations within my own weblog template.
Speaking of evolution, Facebook v1.6 for Blackberry just hit the Blackberry AppWorld. I'm installing it now and hoping that this release bridges the UX gap between previous releases and those on - for example - the iPhone Facebook client.
I'll play around with it later today and let you know whether it's worth upgrading/installing.
Something that is worth checking out right now is the Fan Page for PlanetLotus.org.
The thing about this particular Fan Page is that it's a solid stroke to bring the subject matter expertise and amazing content that's generated from within the little yellow bubble to a community that primarily may not know of the Lotus Online Community.
From the Fan Page, Yancy is pulling in the PlanetLotus.org content feed. This will allow us to quickly and easily click-and-share content that addresses our own needs as well as those that do not actively engage the blogs, podcasts, news items, and other amazing content that's aggregated at PlanetLotus.org.
So go grab your vanity URL, fan page PlanetLotus.org, and for the love of all things holy can you stop sending me Yoville requests?! ;-)
