I really think this program is awesome as I know so many champions across the IBM product lines I can not possibly list them all here. There are developer blogs, admin blogs, design blogs, and general user blogs that hit just about every piece of IBM software and hardware. I think many times we forget why people blog, it may be a piece of narcissism or just plain old trying to spread the word about things they are passionate about. The bottom line is it is all good for IBM and all of the Tweets, links, and blog entries simply help the IBM community and its brand.
I personally have been very passionate about software development, Java, Eclipse, OSGI and in general web and rich client development from day one but I also know many others in the community far surpass my contributions. If you know anyone that you follow closely in the overall IBM community (Lotus, Websphere, Tivoli, etc) please take some time to submit their name to this site. (link here)
Are you a hot shot Lotus or WebSphere developer? Do you blog, author articles, are active in forums, or in general a strong Lotus or WebSphere advocate? Do you know someone who is? Nominations are open for you or a worthy candidate you may know! Just what is a IBM Champion, and what does it take to be one? —link
