First ever Lotus Knows IdeaJam was held from August 19 to August 22. The jam was designed as a unique opportunity to hear the thoughts of Lotus users and learn from their experiences. The Jam had more than 4,700 unique visitors from 73 countries who contributed over 950 new ideas, 2,200 comments and 20,000 votes. They are keeping the Lotus Knows IdeaJam available until September 12 so you can read the comments from the community.
As the momentum around this continues to build, they are asking for contributions to the ‘Video Blitz’. The Blitz is designed to showcase the broad capabilities of Lotus technology in short, entertaining video clips, and you are invited to participate: “It’s an opportunity for you to create a video that visually demonstrates how end users know Lotus. Take any approach you think best conveys your message. Be as creative as you like, but you’ll need to do it all in 1 to 3 minutes and your submission must be in .WMV video format.
You can upload your submission to www.doyouknowlotus.com ” (more info there also).
There is also a new podcast in the Taking Notes series Lotus Knows Jamming with Industry Innovators. “Alistair Rennie and Kevin Cavanaugh discuss the IdeaJam, the Lotus Knows campaign, IBM’s Smarter Planet agenda and what’s on the horizon from Lotus. It is available on on iTunes or on the Taking Notes Podcast web site.”
