The innovator’s innovator

One of the things I love about working with IBM is that we get to think about and experiment with the future. For example, with the economic climate and the travel restrictions in place, we’re looking for ways to hold more effective virtual conferences. It’s absolutely fascinating seeing people come up with ways to make virtual conferences more engaging and more inclusive, and to see the way we’re improving the technologies and processes. I can’t wait to help figure things out. And as we’re learning, we’ll help other companies save money and connect more effectively, too.

IBM’s a large company, so we have the challenges and opportunities that many other companies also have. IBM has terrific people who are passionate about their work and who have the technical and organizational skills to make things better. And IBM has the services, software, and hardware structures to share these solutions and best practices with others. It’s not a perfect company, but it–we–can do a lot of good. =)

The world will be a better place when anyone can come from anywhere in order to connect, collaborate, learn, and share. Looking forward to helping make this happen!

RSS footers

I’ve noticed an increasing number of automated spam blogs (splogs) that syndicate my blog posts, usually with a teensy bit of attribution and a whole bunch of ads.

I will always offer full feeds, not summaries, because summary-only blogs drive me crazy. =)

So I thought I’d use the RSS Footer plugin to add a little context to my feed. If this is driving you crazy (too much text!) or if you want to suggest a change to the footer message, please leave a comment. Thanks! =)
