Since eProductivity.NET isn't live yet, I'll blog about another favorite site: Michael Sampson's Shared-Spaces. Michael writes an excellent blog on cross-enterprise collaboration architecture. It is a useful site to stay on top of the latest developments in collaboration. I first met Michael 8 years ago, as part of our work in the Electronic Messaging Association (Now, OpenGroup). At the time, Michael and I co-presented on the subject of Unified Messaging. Companies are beginning to used the technology Michael and I talked about all those years ago. Through that experience, Michael and I maintained a close friendship, despite the fact that Michael is in New Zealand and I'm in California. Like us, Michael and his wife, Katrina, educate their large family (all boys -- I stopped counting at 5, but there have been more since, and more are on the way) at home. Hmmm Michael, you have all the boys, and we have all the girls. Let's talk in 15 years.
Looks like I'll be travelling to Chicago in April, to speak at a corporate conference on the subject of eProductivity with Lotus Notes. I'm looking forward to it.
