Yes, that is the last vacation I will be seeing for a long time. It looks like there was a lot of activity in the blogosphere while I was out. I kept up to date through the use of the google reader and feed subscriptions – which 90% of my news is now read this way. Lotus Notes 8 has some amazing download numbers and it looks like the composite application space is getting a lot of attention. Being on the beach in the Adirondacks got me thinking a lot and it spawned the addition of a cool new component for our team dashboard that I blogged about over at the CA blog. I am really impressed with the samples that shipped with Sametime 7.5.1 toolkit. I was able to take the RecentBuddies sample and modify it in a couple of hours to get what I needed.
