Member Spotlight - Gold Forums

Well, that took me by surprise.  Tara Hall of IBM just wrote and let me know that I was selected to be the person highlighted for the developerWorks: Lotus Member Spotlight for February.  (I thought it was a bit funny that her letter described it as "formerly the Lotus Developer Domain" whereas I, and many others, think of it still as "formerly Notes Net")

It is pretty cool to be in the spotlight.  I have answered a lot of questions over the years in the various Gold Forums, but I didn't think I would ever be picked for this.  I'm honored.  

If you want to take a look, go to and look on the right hand side.

Well deserved, I might add. Now, if we could just get you to quit plugging your product all the time like a raw, naked capitalist, it'd be perfect! LOL!

Dan, don't ask him to "expose" anything!

Dan - Ironically, I have a full profile available, but it is under Benjamin Langhinrichs. I'll try to get them to point to that instead.

Duffbert - Zip up your mind!
