Connect 2014

This year, I will be presenting during two sessions at Connect 2014, an IBM conference focused on social, collaborative, and mobile technology. I will be speaking about my company's implementation of IBM Connections (a social network for the enterprise) and responsive web design.

Below are the descriptions for both of my sessions:

Session: ECE104
Program Stream 1: For Business Leaders
Track 03: Solutions for Exceptional Customer Experiences

Brand Refresh and Responsive UI at the Superior Group

Founded in 1957, Superior Group focuses on the agile delivery of people, process and project outsourcing solutions. When your business is people, brand is critical. Mobility is also critical as HR professionals and recruits are not always sitting in front of their computer. Come to this session to see how The Superior Group partnered with Avnet Services to deliver a new brand, leveraging rich content management capabilities. In addition to the new brand, the new sites are fully responsive so users are given the proper experience from any device. You will learn the business drivers as well as some technical details of the implementation.

Session: CUST122
Program Stream 2: For IT Practitioners
Track 07: Customer Case Studies (from an IT perspective)

Superior Group and Waters Corp: Successfully Launching IBM Connections

Anyone looking to deploy a social business platform should attend this session to understand how to plan, build, and launch Connections. You will learn from the real life experiences of two mid-size organizations. Waters Corporation and Superior Group are from different industries and geographies, but each wanted a globally connected internal communication platform that promoted company-wide knowledge sharing and collaboration. We will showcase each deployment and discuss how to leverage business objectives to drive high rates of adoption and engagement across the enterprise. This session will provide valuable lessons learned for you to consider when planning and orchestrating your IBM Connections launch.

If you're attending Connect, please be sure to say hello or attend one of my presentations. If you'd like to learn more Connect, access the event website at http://www-01.ibm.com/software/collaboration/events/connect/.

The Chaneysville Incident by John Bradley

I read a lot of books, and sometimes even manage to comment about them here. More often that not, I enjoy most of the books I post about. This is probably because (admittedly) I look for books by authors I already know or that I have an inkling -- from word of mouth or reviews -- that I'll enjoy. Still, you never know when you're going to read a book that you really like or that makes others pale in comparison. The Chaneysville Incident is such a novel. I came to read The Chaneysville Incident after asking for suggestions for a big book for my long flights to and from Japan. One of my work colleagues suggested it, and though I'd never heard of it or author John Bradley, I decided to give it a try. I'm really glad I did.

The protagonist's efforts to reconstruct the past eleva

Configuring a Wireless HP Photosmart C4380

For the record, over a year later the workaround I detailed here is still working for me. If you have something to add that might help others, please feel free to add to the comments. The original post follows below. ##   So, we bought a wireless printer. After some initial back and forth, we settled on a wireless HP Photosmart C4380. I thought we did a fair bit of research before purchasing the product, but apparently not enough, as there were many issues and surprises that we discovered only after we setup the device. I'm posting this to relate the significant difficulties we encountered setting up the printer and post workarounds I've implemented for the benefits of others who might be considering this product or who may have already purchased it
