Memorial Day 2015 in St Louis, MO events

Each year there is so much to do in St Louis, MO for Memorial Day you often lose track. Here is a growing list of 2015 Memorial Day events with a live Google Map showing the events and links. A summary of events on the growing map is as follows: Each site on the map has links, times and URL links where possible.

I do not organize any of these events but wanted to share a growing list of places you should visit this weekend. This list is nowhere near inclusive of everything and I am adding to it all the time.

IBM Verse does not currently support sending encrypted messages

I found an IBM Verse technote on encryption interesting when I was investigating another issue:
IBM Verse does not currently support sending encrypted messages, though messages that were received encrypted can be read within Verse.  While all transactions between the web browser and IBM SmartCloud are transmitted over a secure network connection, the actual content of messages cannot be additionally encrypted by IBM Verse using S/MIME or Notes encryption.  This applies to both new messages composed within Verse and replies to messages that were encrypted when they were sent to the Verse user.

Messages that must be encrypted can be sent using either SmartCloud Notes or SmartCloud Notes web.

I am guessing this will come later but I never did consider this or see it part of any documentation as a limitation earlier.

IBM Connections Cloud enhancements for April 2015

IBM has announced enhancements coming to IBM Connections Cloud for April 2015.  Here are some of the updates.  Luis Benetiz was kind enough to give everyone a sneak peek of this at Social Connections
  • Customize community layout and navigation
  • Type ahead search
  • New theme aligned to IBM Verse
  • Policy to disable chat history on file transfer
  • IBM Verse for iPhones
  • Apple Push notifications for To-do's
  • Google Cloud Messaging integration for Traveler users.  (Using GCM is easier on Android to get notifications instead of being constantly connected for push notifications)
IBM Verse for iPhone

I am curious if we will see a new One UI change with a change toward IBM Verse look and feel.  This would be some retooling of numerous applications and interfaces for users.  While the end result would be cleaner, it might be a bit too clean.

See the previous IBM Connections Cloud enhancement posts right here (and previous SmartCloud naming ones) on IdoNotes.
