I am curious as to how many Lotus professionals -- that is, people who work with products in the IBM Lotus product portfolio, such as Lotus Notes Domino, Sametime, Quickr, Traveler, Foundations, etc. -- know about resources like PlanetLotus.org (http://www.planetlotus.org
) or the greater Lotus Online Community.
PlanetLotus.org is an aggregated list of blogs specifically discussing IBM Lotus products.
The greater Lotus Online Community is a little more difficult to quantify. It is the global online presence of Lotus professionals through social networking sites & services (like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube) to business networking sites & services (like LinkedIn, IBM Greenhouse, BleedYellow Connections, etc.).
It is an overall network of subject matter experts (to accurately use the industry buzzword), most looking to not only help other Lotus professionals but to also extend the knowledge of the capabilities of the Lotus products "beyond the [yellow] bubble".
If you have the time, I suggest you check them out. And no, you don't need a "blog" to participate -- just jump in and engage with members of one of the greatest global communities you're likely to find!
