"Nuthin', what's a motto you?"&amp;nbsp; (Lion King)&lt;/h3&gt;I can't hear the word motto without thinking about Timon and Pumba.&amp;nbsp; Now a bit more than 30 days into the job, motto had become super important to me of late.&amp;nbsp; It may sound as if I am simply "drinking the Kool-Aid", but when you have a good motto, its worth talking about.&amp;nbsp; Coda's motto (or tagline) is &lt;i&gt;&lt;b&gt;Do something great.&amp;nbsp; Every day.&amp;nbsp; &lt;/b&gt;&lt;/i&gt;Being in the software business, there is a very real risk of missing the mark with your solution should it come out at an inappropriate time, be irrelevant in its message or function, or any other number of conditions that have led many good things to an unfortunate end.&amp;nbsp; Every day I try to do my part to ensure this does not happen with Maestro.&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Coda's motto couldn't be more appropriate for our line of work, as if we do not move the needle even just a little bit each and every day, there is a chance someone else may seize our market.&amp;nbsp; Keeping an eye on the future, while managing the tasks of the day, and learning from the past and those before you can definitely leave someone with a dizzying view of life.&amp;nbsp; We don't have to always see in all directions, just never lose sight of the goal and nudge, leap, claw, climb, run, fly, whatever you need to in the right direction and good things will happen.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; Maintaining momentum is easier than trying to generate it in the first place&amp;nbsp; Motivating multiple teams to move in one direction to build, market, sell, and manage the flagship product offering for a new company has been extremely rewarding and an amazing growing experience so far, and it is JUST starting!&amp;nbsp;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;So my advice to all, do SOMETHING every day.&amp;nbsp; Make it great, or trust that it will be a step towards something great regardless, and see what happens.&amp;nbsp; Positivity is as contagious as negativity, but has a better effect on morale and productivity.&amp;nbsp; Try to see the positive in all that is happening around you, and continue on your respective journeys.&amp;nbsp; You never know how your journey may overlap someone else's and the amazing things that happen when you get the right band together.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;</description><thr:total xmlns:thr="http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0">0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://socialaboration.blogspot.com/2016/04/what-motto.html</feedburner:origLink></item><item><title>Introducing: Coda Global</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/Y7EWflxbVGA/introducing-coda-global.html</link><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Thu, 24 Mar 2016 06:58:38 PDT</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-5791073849616167768</guid><description>For the majority of my career I have been a consultant. &amp;nbsp;An information technology consultant. &amp;nbsp;A geek. &amp;nbsp;While the lifestyle (no, consulting is not just a career) afforded me opportunities to travel a bit, see different parts of the world, experience different foods and people, it came at a price: family time. &amp;nbsp;The importance of work-life balance, not missing so many "firsts" with my four children, and enjoying the fruits of my labors a bit in the moment (as opposed to the perpetual "some day") is more important than maintaining gold status with a given airline. &amp;nbsp;I needed to realize that and work towards right sizing my work life.&lt;div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div&gt;Beyond racking up status points, I also highly valued the customers who saw me as their "trusted advisor" for all things within my area of expertise. &amp;nbsp;Building the laundry list of skills like a buzz-word dictionary to describe what I "do". &amp;nbsp;So, what do I do? &amp;nbsp;I have always gravitated towards collaboration as a focus area of expertise. &amp;nbsp;Over the years this discipline has been referred to as knowledge management, or more recently social collaboration, or others I cannot think of at the moment. &amp;nbsp;Regardless, my career has been largely centered around helping people work together better, faster, or more efficiently. &amp;nbsp;I do not see this entirely changing, but for me it is evolving.&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div&gt;This brings me to the topic at hand, which is&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="http://www.coda.global/" target="_blank"&gt;Coda Global&lt;/a&gt;. &amp;nbsp;This latest chapter in my career is built on the same foundation as always, helping people work together better, but with a twist. &amp;nbsp;Among other focus areas, Coda is a product company, and I am the first to bear the title of Conductor. &amp;nbsp;Our business platform is a cloud solution, built with a combination of open source and proprietary IP, designed to provide large enterprise like capabilities to small and medium size businesses in an affordable and flexible manner. &amp;nbsp;Conductors in music help direct and shape the performance of a group, so too do Coda Conductors &amp;nbsp;We take the base platform (our score) and work with customers and our service professionals (the orchestra) and deliver a solution (performance) to solve the complex and sometimes unique needs of our customers. &amp;nbsp;The most significant difference for us is that we do not see each of the movements of our piece as stand alone engagements, but rather a variation on the theme, which offers opportunity for features and capabilities to find their way back into the product. &amp;nbsp; This productized approach also affords us the opportunity to be prescriptive with certain behaviors and aspects of the tooling, but our services arm is capable of tailoring to the business needs of the individual customers we work with.&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div&gt;So, take a moment to get to know Coda Global. &amp;nbsp;Understand our differentiators and capabilities. &amp;nbsp;Perhaps we can bring better harmony to your organization too.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;/div&gt;</description><thr:total xmlns:thr="http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0">2</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://socialaboration.blogspot.com/2016/03/introducing-coda-global.html</feedburner:origLink></item><item><title>Making Ubuntu MEAN!</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/P9WGTfRsvmY/making-ubuntu-mean.html</link><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Mon, 02 Mar 2015 11:29:38 PST</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-4998454128699262481</guid><description>One of the coolest things I saw at ConnectED was a utility out of Lab Services called Project MUSE. &amp;nbsp;It is a collection of JavaScript technologies put together to enable rewriting of HTTP packets on the fly for rebranding and injecting custom modules for SaaS customers. &amp;nbsp;This means even multitennant Connections customers will be able to brand and customize the UI to their hearts' content. &amp;nbsp;The IBM Distiguished Engineer, Jason Gary gave a wonderful demo and walk through the stack and its capabilities. &amp;nbsp;One of the things the team used in MUSE was the MEAN application stack. &lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you are not aware, MEAN is a fullstack JavaScript framework comprised of MongoDB, express, AngularJS, and nodejs. &amp;nbsp;This JS app stack is extremely flexible and I wanted to learn more about the underlying technologies used in MUSE. &amp;nbsp;To get started, I figured I would fire up an Ubuntu server and install the stack. &amp;nbsp;Sounded like a simple enough task, and obvious place to begin. &amp;nbsp;After a day or so of failed attempts, hunting down error messages, troubleshooting, and piecing together documentation from the four corners of the internet, I have the formula for making the stack work. &amp;nbsp;Here are my notes in the event they prove to help anyone else. &amp;nbsp;(and so I don't forget)&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;I started with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. &amp;nbsp;As always I immediately ran the apt commands to refresh the repo information and then install the latest patches. &amp;nbsp;I will assume that the readers know how to do this, and a fully patched Ubuntu 14.04 LTS installation is the starting point.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;PROCESS:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;ol&gt;&lt;li&gt;First I needed to install a few things to make the environment ready for development tasks.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: #cccccc; font-family: Courier New, Courier, monospace;"&gt;sudo apt-get install gpm vim vim-doc vim-scripts build-essential curl git&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;One of the issues I encountered was a WRITE SAME error when installing MongoDB. &amp;nbsp;To prevent that issue, I found a helpful script in an article (referenced) linked here to address the issue:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a href="http://ewen.mcneill.gen.nz/blog/media/disable-write-same"&gt;http://ewen.mcneill.gen.nz/blog/media/disable-write-same&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;Next I needed to install MongoDB on my own. &amp;nbsp;I followed the instructions provided in the link found in the reference section to mongodb.org. &amp;nbsp;They were:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: #cccccc; font-family: Courier New, Courier, monospace;"&gt;sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv 7F0CEB10&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;echo 'deb http://downloads-distro.mongodb.org/repo/ubuntu-upstart dist 10gen' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb.list&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;sudo apt-get update&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;sudo apt-get install -y mongodb-org&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;span style="font-family: inherit;"&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: white;"&gt;After installing MongoDB, I then continued on to install nodejs. &amp;nbsp;I was able to follow the simple instructions from the mean.io site.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: #cccccc; font-family: Courier New, Courier, monospace;"&gt;curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup | sudo bash -&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;sudo apt-get update&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;sudo apt-get install nodejs&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;span style="font-family: inherit;"&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: white;"&gt;TIP: BE SURE TO INSTALL GIT IF YOU MISSED IT EARLIER!!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: white; font-family: inherit;"&gt;Git installs and does not always setup the git:// protocol resolution correctly. &amp;nbsp;To compensate for that I had to run:&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: #cccccc; font-family: Courier New, Courier, monospace;"&gt;git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git://&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;With MongoDB, Node ,and the necessary underlying system stuff underway, I now turned my attention to the mean tools.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: #cccccc; font-family: Courier New, Courier, monospace;"&gt;npm install -g grunt-cli&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;npm install -g bower&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;npm install -g mean-cli&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: white; font-family: inherit;"&gt;With mean installed, I now had the stack, but there is a default administration application that needed to be setup. &amp;nbsp;I used mean to initialize the default admin application.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: #cccccc; font-family: Courier New, Courier, monospace;"&gt;mean init &amp;lt;myApp&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: white;"&gt;&lt;span style="font-family: Courier New, Courier, monospace;"&gt;&amp;nbsp; (&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span style="font-family: inherit;"&gt;where &amp;lt;myApp&amp;gt; is the name of whatever you want to call your default application)&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: #cccccc; font-family: 'Courier New', Courier, monospace;"&gt;cd &amp;lt;myApp&amp;gt; &amp;amp;&amp;amp; npm install&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: white; font-family: inherit;"&gt;Now I started the application I just setup.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: #cccccc;"&gt;&lt;span style="font-family: Courier New, Courier, monospace;"&gt;grunt&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;li&gt;&lt;span style="background-color: white;"&gt;I then just pointed my browser at my server on port 3000 and was able to see the default app.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;http://&amp;lt;server.name&amp;gt;:3000&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ol&gt;&lt;div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;REFERENCE:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a href="http://learn.mean.io/#m-e-a-n-stack-installation"&gt;http://learn.mean.io/#m-e-a-n-stack-installation&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a href="http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-ubuntu/?_ga=1.210389661.982565409.1424984373"&gt;http://docs.mongodb.org/manual/tutorial/install-mongodb-on-ubuntu/?_ga=1.210389661.982565409.1424984373&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;a href="http://askubuntu.com/questions/449232/problem-installing-14-04-in-vmplayer"&gt;http://askubuntu.com/questions/449232/problem-installing-14-04-in-vmplayer&lt;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;</description><thr:total xmlns:thr="http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0">2</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://socialaboration.blogspot.com/2015/03/making-ubuntu-mean.html</feedburner:origLink></item><item><title>IBM ConnectED 2015, As I Saw It</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/XGb3ZQNP4WQ/ibm-connected-2015-as-i-saw-it.html</link><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Tue, 03 Feb 2015 06:59:15 PST</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-3954697447524140896</guid><description>I did not always know I was going into technology.&amp;nbsp; In a previous life, like so many of my technical brethren, I was a musician.&amp;nbsp; During the mind-late 1990's I played in a band that would do events like weddings, bar mitzvahs, etc.&amp;nbsp; We would close each night with &lt;a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUSzL2leaFM" target="_blank"&gt;this Eric Clapton song&lt;/a&gt;.&amp;nbsp; It speaks of getting ready to go out with your wife, then the realization of how luck you are to be the one with her, and end with her tucking you in at the end of the night the way only your better half can or does.&amp;nbsp; I felt this sentiment through the entire week of ConnectED this year.&amp;nbsp; It started with careful preparation, more so than years past. &amp;nbsp; I packed more suits than typical, enjoyed the time spent with customers and being able to say that they were there with me, and finally a gentle farewell.&amp;nbsp; The speculation among the community that this was the last hurrah for the Swan/Dolphin to host the ICS conference, and the sentiment was undoubtedly there for me this week.&amp;nbsp; I feel extremely privileged to have been able to attend this years conference, especially if the speculation proves to be accurate.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The key messages for the week were definitely centered around IBM Verse and whats new in IBM Connections.&amp;nbsp; If you have not found what Verse is, take a &lt;a href="http://www.ibm.com/social-business/us/en/newway/index.html?S_PKG=-&amp;amp;S_TACT=USBRB301&amp;amp;iio=CCA&amp;amp;jm=-&amp;amp;cmp=USBRB&amp;amp;ct=USBRB301&amp;amp;cr=bing&amp;amp;cm=k&amp;amp;csr=Capabilities-Social-Category-IBM_Verse_BR&amp;amp;ccy=us&amp;amp;ck=IBM%20verse&amp;amp;cs=e&amp;amp;cn=Verse_BR&amp;amp;mkwid=I6pxbkvx-dc_5939843093_432t5q28552" target="_blank"&gt;look here&lt;/a&gt;.&amp;nbsp; It is without a doubt one of the biggest innovations in personal information management.&amp;nbsp; Blending Watson with email, calendar and a really intuitive UI.&amp;nbsp; It is definitely something to keep an eye on.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;For Connections, Luis Benitez kicked off the week with a spectacular demo of what is coming, including Watson search and analytics integration, an improved homepage, and the most exciting community customization enhancements I have seen to date.&amp;nbsp; Luis has a great summation on &lt;a href="http://www.lbenitez.com/2015/02/from-ibm-connected-2015-whats-new-in.html" target="_blank"&gt;his blog&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;There was other news from the IBM camp about realignment of resources, new offerings, and the normal smattering of great stuff.&amp;nbsp; Of particular note to me was a small project out of the IBM Labs, Project MUSE.&amp;nbsp; It is an amazing little collection of JavaScript technologies that enables one to customize and extend cloud delivered offerings as if they were on-premise.&amp;nbsp; It injects customizations into the HTTP packets on the fly, and by using caching and predictive services, there is no performance hit.&amp;nbsp; (They showed studies of performance gains to be honest.)&amp;nbsp; I can definitely say that MUSE is now very much on MY radar and am extremely eager to see what happens with it.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;To all friends, old and new, it was a pleasure roaming the halls of the Swan and Dolphin with you once more.&amp;nbsp; Until the next time we all get to gather around a fountain and raise a glass, be safe, work out-loud, and continue to innovate without caution.</description><thr:total xmlns:thr="http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0">2</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://socialaboration.blogspot.com/2015/02/ibm-connected-2015-as-i-saw-it.html</feedburner:origLink></item><item><title>IBM ConnectED 2015</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/a_xzHmxssh8/ibm-connected-2015.html</link><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Tue, 13 Jan 2015 10:11:07 PST</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-6654678080571159557</guid><description>IBM's conference ConnectED 2015 is quickly approaching.&amp;nbsp; At the end of the month, many of us who work daily with IBM's collaboration sollutions will swarm on Orlando, Fl.&amp;nbsp; The topics of discussion this year will no doubt include &lt;a href="http://www.ibm.com/social-business/us/en/newway/index.html" target="_blank"&gt;IBM Verse&lt;/a&gt;.&amp;nbsp; If you are not familiar, this is the single largest innovation in email in quite a number of years.&amp;nbsp; It is a mail client that ir browser based and centered around making you more productive.&amp;nbsp; With a design direction of "two clicks to perform anything" and a search / recommendation engine which shares DNA with Watson, it is a very promising tool.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;In the arena of Connections / Portal, we have seen a great deal of maturity.&amp;nbsp; I have been working for over a year now on building social portals with a few different organizations.&amp;nbsp; Taking advantage of Social Rendering, DDC, the advancements made with the Connections Portlets, and many other technologies.&amp;nbsp; I hope to see some coverage on these technologies as they have grown, but I don't expect them to be the crowning jewel of the show as they were in years past.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If you will be at the conference, please look me up, otherwise I will try to relay as much relevant and exciting information from the ground as I can along the way.&amp;nbsp;

The customer had extensive UI and feature changes for the smaller of the two groups of users.&amp;nbsp; To achieve this goal, I decided to solve their particular challenge with Social Rendering and API portlets to develop the extranet UX and enable the internal users to use Connections virtually out-of-the-box.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Social Rendering is a feature of Portal / WCM released with the 8.0.0.1 update.&amp;nbsp; It enables developers and integrators to surface lists of Connections content using WCM conventions (presentation template, authoring template, PZN &amp;amp; HTML components, piece of content, and a web content portlet) and then quickly or easily modify the UI to match the Portal design.&amp;nbsp; This is a significant enhancement to the traditional pattern of developing API portlets to do this very task because the API query is built for you in the piece of content that represents your list.&amp;nbsp; It also separates the design from the logic so that when making edits or changes to the HTML components for UI changes, there is no risk of ruining the business logic behind the list.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style="background-color: #cccccc; border: 5px solid gray; margin: 30px; padding: 10px; width: 490px;"&gt;*NOTE* As of the time of this writing, the default behavior of Social Rendering is not real time.&amp;nbsp; It operates on a delay of ~15 minutes do to the architecture.&amp;nbsp; Workarounds may be employed, but to do so there may be harmful side effects.&amp;nbsp; Tuning and optimization of Social Rendering is not going to be covered in this post. &lt;/div&gt;The first step for our team, however, was to get our arms around Social Rending.&amp;nbsp; How does it work?&amp;nbsp; What are the pieces and parts we need?&amp;nbsp; Which component in WCM do I use to control which aspect of this solution?&amp;nbsp; These answers were critical to our success and once we realized how these pieces all fit together, the flexibility that it truly affords, the possibilities became numerous quite quickly.&amp;nbsp; As is often the case, I wanted to capture these important points of information somewhere and my blog is the place for such things so I can refer back later and maybe even a few others will learn from my struggles as well.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Once you install Portal 8.0.0.1 and make sure the 8.0.0.1 features are all enabled, a series of portlets will now be available to be added to your Portal pages.&amp;nbsp; These portlets are all lists of something, such as the "List of Blogs" portlet.&amp;nbsp; These are all special instances of a web content portlet preconfigured to also setup a piece of content that represents a search against Connections.&amp;nbsp; Staying with the List of Blogs example, this particular list should display all of the blog posts that the current user has access to.&amp;nbsp; It is the equivalent of searching for everything and then changing the scope to Blogs in Connections.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This leads me to the next important point, which is Social Rendering makes use of the Connections Search API to find the content it displays.&amp;nbsp; It truly is a search operation, the results of which are what is displayed in the portlet.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Now that we know how we obtain the data, the second half of the equation is what is responsible for rendering the list.&amp;nbsp; This is a bit more complex of an answer.&amp;nbsp; In the WCM Library Explorer you should be able to find the IBM Connections library.&amp;nbsp; This is the library that is setup when Social Rendering is enabled that includes the components which are responsible for the design of the Social Rendering lists.&amp;nbsp; There are the expected authoring and presentation templates, but these are very generic and point to secondary components with reference another level of component.&amp;nbsp; I have found ti generally safe to use these same components for most lists.&amp;nbsp; The magic really happens when the content is run through the PZN engine and the PZN component applied.&amp;nbsp; The PZN component functions like a standard WCM navigator in that it has a header, body, and footer design block.&amp;nbsp; These blogs call HTML components which contain the markup that is applied to the search results.&amp;nbsp; This would be the injection point for customization as you can have the component reference a custom PZN component that links to custom HTML components.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;In short, Social Rendering is a search result from Connections that is then handed to the PZN engine where UI elements are applied to the list of results.&amp;nbsp; The search type / criteria can be manipulated in the piece of content and the UI controlled with the PZN and associated HTML components.&amp;nbsp; These are then displayed with the standard web content portlets that are used for all WCM content on a Portal page.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The out-of-the-box lists all make use of the OneUI standard and are responsive UI friendly to fit into the Portal default UI.&amp;nbsp; Your cusotmizations may change this or not require the OneUI standard, but it is good to note this fact.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Hopefully this is more helpful than confusing to those looking in from the outside.&amp;nbsp; For some specific information about social rendering, refer to the &lt;a href="http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/portalwiki.nsf/xpDocViewer.xsp?lookupName=V8+Update%3A+Supplemental+Documentation#action=openDocument&amp;amp;res_title=Social_rendering_wp8001&amp;amp;content=pdcontent" target="_blank"&gt;Portal Wiki&lt;/a&gt;.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;As an additional tip, one should also note that there are synergies between the Social Rendering lists and the &lt;a href="https://greenhouse.lotus.com/plugins/plugincatalog.nsf/assetDetails.xsp?action=editDocument&amp;amp;documentId=B72C4E177060582285257B3A0053BB6F" target="_blank"&gt;IBM Connections Portlets for WebSphere Portal&lt;/a&gt; from IBM Greenhouse.&amp;nbsp; I intended to cover that in a bit more detail in a subsequent post.&amp;nbsp; Just be sure to grab the correct version of the portlets as the older versions do not have the same support for Social Rendering.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;</description><thr:total xmlns:thr="http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0">0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://socialaboration.blogspot.com/2013/09/dressing-up-connections-social-rendering.html</feedburner:origLink></item><item><title>Connections Mobile Update</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/ZKnatATpKAo/connections-mobile-update.html</link><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Sat, 20 Jul 2013 07:52:48 PDT</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-8412897072499628227</guid><description>If you have not looked recently, there has been another major update released for the mobile application for Connections.&amp;nbsp;

4: Profiles Customization Gets More Flexible</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/LQbzIit2-Dg/connections-4-profiles-customization.html</link><category>connections</category><category>ibm_connections</category><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Thu, 11 Oct 2012 07:17:37 PDT</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-6510316698003356042</guid><description>So I am not sure if anyone else has really spent time with this feature yet or not, but IBM has rewritten the was Profiles customization and extension happens.&amp;nbsp; It now takes advantage of the FreeMarker templating system for customizing Profiles, Business Cards, and Profile Search results.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;IBM has provided a &lt;a href="http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/lcwiki.nsf/xpDocViewer.xsp?lookupName=IBM+Connections+4.0+documentation#action=openDocument&amp;amp;res_title=Creating_a_simple_profile_data_model_and_template_customization_ic40&amp;amp;content=pdcontent" target="_blank"&gt;demo example&lt;/a&gt; in the product wiki to walk you through the steps to execute a simple extension.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;The beauty of this approach is that code which would previously have been put into a custom attribute definition (which still works for backwards compatibility) can now be either placed into a custom FreeMarker macro in the commonUtil.ftl or can simply be wrapped around the display macro for the field in the other templates.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;One word of advice, the documentation still has remnants of the Connections 3.x methodologies and links within some of the pages weave you between both methodologies.&amp;nbsp; When looking for information on enabling extension attributes for editing via the API, for example, it still references all configuration being done in the profiles-config.xml.&amp;nbsp; That file has been broken up into multiple files, with certain configuration remaining there and other configurations being moved to profiles-types.xml.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;If the OOTB template files are not extreme enough of a UI change for you, it would appear that the documentation indicates you can completely rewrite the display and editing templates to your liking.&amp;nbsp; The ability to add/remove tabs from Profiles, reorder fields (which I have already used this for), add new fields, etc makes for a very flexible and interesting feature now.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Last note, there is a setting which you will want to explore:&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;div style="font-family: &amp;quot;Courier New&amp;quot;,Courier,monospace;"&gt;&amp;lt;layoutConfiguration&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp; &amp;lt;!--&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; UI Template rendering configuration information&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; --&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &amp;lt;templateConfiguration&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &amp;lt;!-- FTL template reloading to test customization, in production this value should be set to 0, but during customization set to value in seconds --&amp;gt;&lt;br /&gt;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &lt;b&gt;&amp;lt;templateReloading&amp;gt;1&amp;lt;/templateReloading&amp;gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style="font-family: &amp;quot;Courier New&amp;quot;,Courier,monospace;"&gt;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; ...&lt;/div&gt;&lt;div style="font-family: &amp;quot;Courier New&amp;quot;,Courier,monospace;"&gt;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &amp;lt;/templateConfiguration&amp;gt;&lt;/div&gt;&lt;span style="font-family: &amp;quot;Courier New&amp;quot;,Courier,monospace;"&gt;&amp;lt;/layoutConfiguration&amp;gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;This will ensure that while developing your templates checking them out and in without restart will render your changes.&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;Happy Customizing!&lt;br /&gt;&lt;br /&gt;For more information about FreeMarker, check their SourceForge page &lt;a

There may be items in the files on the HTTP server that you will need to incorporate into your upgrade.  &lt;li&gt;Changes to css are now located in &amp;lt;Connections_Data&amp;gt;/shared/customization/themes/defaultTheme and wind up being rolled into a "virtual" css "default.css".&amp;nbsp; This is NOT dynamically generated and requires a restart of the Common application to rebuild the file.&amp;nbsp; (Did not test to see if there is a timed interval that rebuilds this.)&amp;nbsp; NOT EFFECTED by the UI debug WAS parameter.&lt;/li&gt;&lt;/ol&gt;  </description><thr:total xmlns:thr="http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0">1</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://socialaboration.blogspot.com/2012/09/connections-2540-upgrade-notes.html</feedburner:origLink></item><item><title>iOS Connections Mobile Update</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/EplSvgM_TuE/ios-connections-mobile-update.html</link><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Sat, 08 Sep 2012 16:57:39 PDT</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-3065906446147560515</guid><description>If you have not found it yet, it appears the updated connections iOS app has hit iTunes.

Needed to lay the foundation of IC3011 + Kerberos auth.&amp;nbsp; Then turned on SPNEGO SSO to allow pass-through auth for browser clients like SP2010 offers.&amp;nbsp; While setting up SPNEGO, there were a few issues I encountered and wanted to capture them so I remember the next time I need to do this. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;img style="border-bottom-style: none; border-right-style: none; border-top-style: none; border-left-style: none" class="wlEmoticon wlEmoticon-winkingsmile" alt="Winking smile" src="http://lh3.ggpht.com/-g8XEHvzUbpk/UBqloMDEdiI/AAAAAAAAAVQ/SoK8pIgCFmc/wlEmoticon-winkingsmile%25255B2%25255D.png?imgmax=800"&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Issue 1: Remember to Patch!&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;IC 3.0.1.1 supports WAS 7.0.0.11 through 7.0.0.21.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;a href="http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27021342"&gt;http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg27021342&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Be sure to at least reach WAS 7.0.0.15 as there are critical Kerberos fixes that will make your life easier.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Issue 2: Double Check Security&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;When applying a FixPack post initial installation / configuration, it may revert your security to disabled.&amp;nbsp; Make sure to turn it back on right after upgrade.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Issue 3: Mind Your User IDs&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;My initial strategy was to use the same ID for all security related things.&amp;nbsp; When establishing the SPN for the server that ID needs to be a separate ID than the one setup as the administrative ID within the app server and for the individual features.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;a href="http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/lcwiki.nsf/dx/Mapping_an_Active_Directory_account_to_administrative_roles_ic301"&gt;http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/lcwiki.nsf/dx/Mapping_an_Active_Directory_account_to_administrative_roles_ic301&lt;/a&gt;

– THIS ID&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Issue 4: Sync the Node(s)&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Somewhere during all of the installation and patching activities to take a base 3.0.1 installation up to patched 3.0.1.1, the Node fell out of sync with the DM.&amp;nbsp; I had to manually force the sync for the ISC to report the state of applications and node agents properly.&amp;nbsp; The sync issue was also causing some of my configurations to not make their way to the running app server.&amp;nbsp;

After the close of the deal, Microsoft will continue to invest in Yammer's freemium, stand-alone service, and the team will remain under my direction within the Microsoft Office Division. With the backing of Microsoft, our aim is to massively accelerate our vision to change the way work gets done with software that is built for the enterprise and loved by users. &lt;p&gt;As a Yammer customer, you will continue to get a secure, private social network—delivered with the same focus on simplicity, innovation, and cross-platform experiences. Over time, you’ll see more and more connections to SharePoint, Office365, Dynamics and Skype. Yammer’s expertise in empowering employees, driving adoption, and delivering rapid innovation in the cloud will not only continue to power our stand-alone service, but also anchor the communication and collaboration experiences in Office 365. &lt;p&gt;You can find more information in &lt;a href="http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/Press/2012/Jun12/06-25MSYammerPR.aspx"&gt;this press release&lt;/a&gt; and our &lt;a href="http://blog.yammer.com/blog/2012/06/yammers-next-chapter.html"&gt;blog post&lt;/a&gt;. &lt;p&gt;Sincerely, &lt;p&gt;David Sacks &lt;p&gt;Yammer CEO and Founder&lt;/p&gt;  </description><thr:total xmlns:thr="http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0">0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://socialaboration.blogspot.com/2012/06/from-yammer.html</feedburner:origLink></item><item><title>It’s Official…</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/mumcI1HFSME/its-official.html</link><category>connections</category><category>sharepoint</category><category>yammer</category><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Mon, 25 Jun 2012 11:27:36 PDT</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-1566206155317201217</guid><description>&lt;p&gt;&lt;a title="http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/Press/2012/Jun12/06-25MSYammerPR.aspx" href="http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/Press/2012/Jun12/06-25MSYammerPR.aspx"&gt;http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/news/Press/2012/Jun12/06-25MSYammerPR.aspx&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;We knew this was coming, but now they are out of the closet.&amp;nbsp; So… what will this mean for SharePoint social add-ons?&amp;nbsp; How will NewsGator and the others plan for the next 12mo?&amp;nbsp; I think it will be very interesting as there is clearly a statement here that is SharePoint is NOT social, and as such, Microsoft is making a purchase that will enable them to bridge that gap.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;On a side note, it makes me feel that Connections’ message is more solid than ever.&amp;nbsp; As the MS partner ecosystem tries to figure out what the new Yammer + SharePoint will mean for them, IBM can continue to develop and evolve their solution just as they have been for quite a few years now.&amp;nbsp; Businesses can’t deny that IBM has what is obviously a market leader, and also a very mature and stable solution when compared to the new SP landscape.&amp;nbsp; This will be fun, for sure.&lt;/p&gt;  </description><thr:total xmlns:thr="http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0">0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://socialaboration.blogspot.com/2012/06/its-official.html</feedburner:origLink></item><item><title>"What's the Latest with Notes Traveler?"–Open Mic</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/Lu6GwqWtEj8/latest-with-notes-traveler-mic.html</link><category>ibm</category><category>lotus_traveler</category><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Thu, 19 Apr 2012 09:12:35 PDT</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-3972581482515077134</guid><description>&lt;p&gt;You are invited to join an Open Mic Webcast on the topic, "What's the Latest with Notes Traveler?"

The following alert applies to all products that are built on top of WebSphere Application Server, for example: Portal, Sametime, Connections, and Quickr J. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;ACTION:&lt;/strong&gt;&amp;nbsp; Make sure that your customers are aware of these items and the April 26th date . &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;1)The password to the Plugin-key.kdb file&amp;nbsp; that is shipped with the WebSphere Plugin install will expire on April 26, 2012: &lt;br&gt;&amp;nbsp; &lt;br&gt;Please refer to the following link for additional details.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;a href="http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21588312"&gt;http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21588312&lt;/a&gt; &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;The impact&amp;nbsp; of the "password expiration issue in the above flash" is that the https transport between the WebSphere plugin and back-end AppServers will stop working, if not resolved.&amp;nbsp; It means that the Plugin-key.kdb (and the personal &amp;amp; signer certificates in it) will not be loaded during the plugin initialization and the https transport will not be used. &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;2) The personal certificate&amp;nbsp; called "WebSphere Plugin Key" within the plugin-key.kdb that is shipped with the WebSphere Plugin install will expire on April 26, 2012: &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Please refer to the following link for additional details.&amp;nbsp;&amp;nbsp; &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;a href="http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21577327"&gt;http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21577327&lt;/a&gt; &lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;This will affect those WebSphere AppServers that are configured to require SSL client authentication (SSL mutual authentication) and that are using the default WebSphere plug-in key.&amp;nbsp; Most of our customers did not configure WebSphere AppServers to use SSL mutual authentication between the plug-in and WebSphere AppServers. &lt;/p&gt;  </description><thr:total xmlns:thr="http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0">0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://socialaboration.blogspot.com/2012/04/websphere-plugin-key-password.html</feedburner:origLink></item><item><title>We CAN Move From SharePoint to IBM!</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/08UMkDDQCfk/we-can-move-from-sharepoint-to-ibm.html</link><category>connections</category><category>ibm</category><category>ibm_connections</category><category>sharepoint</category><category>social</category><category>wcm</category><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Mon, 09 Apr 2012 07:30:48 PDT</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-3540532054788560497</guid><description>&lt;p&gt;So I have not posted for a while, and for good reason.&amp;nbsp; I have been working almost exclusively with the same customer since November on a really cool project and it is finally reaching a point that I can talk about it… a bit.&amp;nbsp; We (Ascendant) partnered with IBM and T-Systems to bring to fruition a working content migration utility that can take content FROM SharePoint and populate it into Connections / Quickr / WCM.&amp;nbsp; (Yes… any or all of the three mentioned have a native connector for the utility from T-Systems now thanks to our project.)&amp;nbsp; Beyond just grabbing the content, transforming it, and then pushing it into the correct content area, we are able to maintain content ownership and impersonate other users at migration time without impacting those users.&amp;nbsp; This is truly a first of it’s kind solution to the best of my knowledge.&amp;nbsp; Hats off to the whole team we have been working with.&amp;nbsp; I know I am excited to be part of this, as I am sure most of the other team members are as well.&amp;nbsp; This brings real choice to the market as people now have the availability to move their content between platforms.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Thank You everyone that made this possible!&lt;/p&gt;  </description><thr:total xmlns:thr="http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0">1</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://socialaboration.blogspot.com/2012/04/we-can-move-from-sharepoint-to-ibm.html</feedburner:origLink></item><item><title>Sametime Applets to Expire</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/kGhTUr9fLEE/sametime-applets-to-expire.html</link><category>sametime</category><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Fri, 10 Feb 2012 11:36:01 PST</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-6971875921977558948</guid><description>&lt;ul&gt;&lt;b&gt;Sametime Meeting applets certificate expires March 19;

This link points to the problem description:&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;&lt;a href="https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21201323"&gt;https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21201323&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;The work around is to add a few variables to your servers notes.ini to address this.&amp;nbsp; So what does this have to do with Quickr?&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;I was recently discussing a Quickr 8.x &amp;gt; 8.5.1 upgrade when this was encountered.&amp;nbsp; If you have implemented the work around as listed in the above technote, it will break the Quickr login page.&amp;nbsp; The rendered HTML will be malformed, and you will not be able to use the Quickr login page which allows for non-directory members logging into the server / places.&lt;/p&gt; &lt;p&gt;Took a bit of figuring and a PMR, and I suspect this is a rare combination of circumstances, but if this can help anyone else, here it is.&lt;/p&gt;  </description><thr:total xmlns:thr="http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0">0</thr:total><feedburner:origLink>http://socialaboration.blogspot.com/2012/01/quickrd-bug.html</feedburner:origLink></item><item><title>Messaging and Collab SlideShare</title><link>http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/Socialaboration/~3/WesgplpNum0/messaging-and-collab-slideshare.html</link><author>[email protected] (David Greenstein)</author><pubDate>Tue, 27 Dec 2011 14:02:56 PST</pubDate><guid isPermaLink="false">tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6770229321875844491.post-4170888349479757897</guid><description>&lt;p&gt;&lt;a href="http://www.slideshare.net/mediamutt/ibm-messaging-and-collaboration-details-and-whats-new-in-v853"&gt;http://www.slideshare.net/mediamutt/ibm-messaging-and-collaboration-details-and-whats-new-in-v853&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
