Have you listened to This Week in Lotus recently?

As you may be aware, Darren Duke
and I have been recording and publishing This Week in Lotus for 9 months
now.  

The show is a weekly panel discussion about the Lotus (or IBM Social
Business) brand, discussing ‘all things social, collaboration,
technology and community’, and we feature an ever-changing cast of
IBMer, business partners, ISVs, customers and analysts.  We record
every Thursday and release the show via our site at thisweekinlotus.com
(and iTunes, Blackberry Podcasts, Blubrry etc.) on Friday.

The last few weeks we have had a very well-received set of shows, and I
wanted to highlight them here:

We’d love you to listen to the shows, if you haven’t already, and if
you enjoy them, please tell others in your organisation and beyond.
 We recognise that the podcast format isn’t for everyone, but
there is such great content shared by our guests on the show, it would
be wonderful to see it reach a wider audience!

Thanks again to all those that take part in, listen and offer feedback
on the show – we appreciate it!
