Stefan Heinz started the Lotus Mousepad Competition. This is my contribution. It is from Lotus. It is Yellow. It is powered by Notes.

There is another service I discovered while reading about geotagging. Plazes , the "navigation system for your social live", is a cool site that allows users to register access points to physical locations. Plazes will come out with a flickr integration, featuring automated adding of geo-coordinates from the Plazes Launcher and annotating it to your pictures.
In addition, Plazes has just added a tracking features that uses IndyJunior maps to visualize where you've been based on locations from which you have logged into Plazes. The result is a documentation of my current trips through Germany:
Well, this feature is really funny - but it scares me too. The vision of 1984 was the total control by the government. In 2005 we can see very clear: Its not the government. We give away our data without beeing forced - and very often we do it unsolicited and voluntarily.
Schade. Dabei ist heute doch so schönes Wetter.

But there is a continuous change in the way I use my personal information management toolset. I started to use flickr a year ago for managing and sharing my pictures. I started to use openBC to keep track of my contacts. I started using del.icio.usto manage and share my bookmarks. These tools have several things in common. First: They all belong to a new software category called "social software". Second: The data is available everywhere and I can share data easily. Third: There is no interface to Lotus Notes. Yes, I know, they all support RSS and some import / export routines, all not very usefull for me. There is no need to connect flickr to Lotus Notes, because Lotus Notes is definetly not the right place to store images - but what about adresses, calendar entries, tasks? I am not talking about my business adress and correspondence, which resides inside my Notes-based CRM. I am talking about my personal information management.
First, what about managing my contacts? The Lotus Notes personal names and adressbook is still my leading personal adress management application. Syncing the adressbook against services like Plaxo (stopped using it because of missing Notes support) or openBC is not supported. Marco told me he wrote a synchronisation interface to openBC which will be available soon. So there is some hope. But will I store my personal contacts in Lotus Notes in the future? I fight with the personal adress book in Notes since years, clean it up at least once a year for several reasons - mostly because DWA mail template or other applications sync against my adress book and this causes the well known troubles. And it seems I am not the only one fighting with this. Reading the "wishlist for Notes 7" I found several complaints about the poor personal name- and adressbook:
Notes 7.x feature requestsSame for Calendar. I see several needs to share my calendar not only within my company but with many other people and applications. Lotus Notes is not very good in sharing calendar entries across application. Yes, I know, it supports iCal format. I can send and receive invitations - but what about free time lookup?
An address book that doesn't look like its from a product developed 10 years ago. The address book in Notes is by FAR the worst of any PIM management out there. From annoyances like not formating numbers to not being able to e-mail multiple addresses. It is awful.
Now we have the To Do lists. vowe links to a servive called ta-da. You can make you own To Do lists or To Dos for other people. You can share them and the items are available via RSS. I liked the idea immediatly. But: I live inside my Notes client.
I have no idea how to bring all these services together. Share the data across apps and people, maintain the data in one environment when working in Notes. Is the Workplace Client the solution? Maybe in the future. Is it better to componentize, use different apps that are perfect for the individual task. Any suggestions? How do you deal with these - let´s say - challenges?
This is absolutly breathtaking. I know some crazy guys who do these base jumps. And I know some who died for this ultimate kick.

Have you ever wondered how these remarkable weapons work? Where does the energy come from, and how are they able to contain that energy in a rod-like column of glowing power?
