Where Did I Land?

I promised a follow-up posting of where I decided to land after searching for months in the Covid technology landscape ( and we have to admit some wasteland of companies that fell). I am happy to say I am now at HCL in a unique role.

IBM Domino 10 and Sametime #domino2025

IBM and HCL had a webcast/chat about IBM Sametime and the futures of the product. Overall, it seems the feedback they have received is based around simplifying the product deployment, keep most every feature and simply make it easier to use meetings, video and tuning.
