They say all press is good press, but good press is better press. Today's press releases on the new Notes widgets and Foundations Reach are covered all over. Even got a great quote from fellow IBMer K.C.: "Whatever Lotus customers need, there's a widget for that." Take that, Redmond!
Tomorrow we have to figure out how to fight our two front war and keep Google at bay. More plans around LotusLive for sure!
Today's mood is Lifted!!
UPDATE: Kevin's quote was an Apple reference!? Drat!
Instead, we're charged with "cleverly" manipulating our business partners and customers into generating "buzz" for us. I say "cleverly" in quotes, because the only strategy anyone ever seems to buy into is to do something so incredibly bad that we get a news cycle of people making fun of us. It's so frustrating.
*sigh* I had some good ideas when I took this job, and now slowly, but surely, they are being crushed out of me.
