Julian Robichaux came up with an interesting idea for an advertising campaign for Lotus Notes and Domino the other day. I like it.
"Need e-mail? Yeah, it can do that. Client and web applications? Yeah, that too. Portal? Yeah. Blog, wiki, RSS reader? Yes, yes, yes. Web services? Yes, we could do this all day..."
Where I'm working, I'm pretty well known at this point as the guy who says that a lot. When I started where I'm working, if I saw a problem that could be relatively simply solved by using Domino, I'll point it out and explain as well as I can. Eventually somehow it became a cliche....problem stated, "you can do that with Domino", eye roll. Sometimes a lone admin isn't a great candidate for a technology advocate, but I try...
So what I'm saying is that while I think "yeah, it can do that too" is true and a good idea, I would hate to see it turn out like my efforts have turned out.
