    The SharePoint Conference 2009 has announced it’s first award winner! Robert Chrestensen , of Salient6 , has submitted the winning design for the SharePoint Conference design competition.

  • Blog Post: Andy Dale’s SharePoint Awards 2009

    I’m a fan of the web site SharePointReviews.com .  It’s a great site to point anyone who is looking for SharePoint add-ons and third-party applications to add to their SharePoint farm.  While catching up with the site the other day, I saw Andy Dale’s guest blog entry on Mike Ferrera ’s OnPoint...

  • Blog Post: SharePoint Training – Blaming a Lack on The Economy

    I loved to see the blog entry today on EndUserSharePoint.com , calling out an observation that companies are not investing in training due to the “Bad Economy”. While each SharePoint owner has their own reason for investing in training or not, I’ve got to agree (biased?  perhaps?  :-) ) that...

  • Blog Post: AIIM – Spreading the SharePoint Love – what?

    My relationship with AIIM over the years has been fairly typical, I would guess – maybe a bit more affiliated than some, but not as tightly aligned as others.  I’ve taken some AIIM training classes, I think that I attended my first AIIM conference in about 1998, and I’m tentatively planning on attending...

  • Blog Post: ECMSharePoint ‘08 Conference

    I’ve been to a lot of ECM conferences and a lot of SharePoint conferences over the past years.  At the ECM conferences, SharePoint is covered by 15-25% of the sessions, and at the SharePoint conferences, ECM is covered by about 20% of the sessions.  Wouldn’t it be great if one could attend...

  • Blog Post: Logical Architecture Model for SharePoint
