Kevin Hansen in an open letter to Mike Rhodin:
You have the worldâ€™s attention at the moment. For the sake of all of us who live and breath Lotus Notes/Domino, please make full use of this brief and rare opportunity.
Out of a strong belief that Notes 8 is the most important release of Notes in the last decade this blog has frequently been a location where I can beg and plead anyone at IBM/Lotus to do more advertising and marketing to get that message out to new audiences. Yes, there have been a number of activities on that circulated around Notes 8 â€¦ but its not enough. And, what is out there doesnâ€™t get to the right people. And when it does, it leaves them confused asking â€œwhat does an animal hybrid have to do with my company â€” or Lotus Notes?â€
My point is that it is frustrating to believe so strongly in a product and have to frequently respond to questions like â€œis Lotus Notes still around?â€
It is. And it has a great story to tell.
Well worth a read.
