I submitted for MWLUG again this year and one of my submissions was accepted:

IBM Connections – Installing the Free “Extras” and Integrating with other Products

The (absolutely riveting) topic will show you all the extras that you get as free entitlements IBM and a small assortment of for pay third party tools and applications.   I will be talking about asome of the tricks, tips and potential pitfalls of the install process and how to maneuver between the icebergs.


Will I see you guys there? It’s a great LUG and Atlanta is a fun city with great food and good Baseball … and it is home of the best Irish Pub of 2015 – who’d a thunk it?

Marine Corporal Josh Bleill [Bly-ul; rhymes with “Kyle” or “smile”] is a native of Greenfield, Indiana. After graduating high school, Josh attended Purdue University. Upon completion of his education, Josh decided to serve his country by joining the United States Marine Corps in 2004, and was activated for a tour of duty in Iraq in 2006.

While serving in Iraq, Corporal Bleill was severely injured, resulting in the loss of both of his legs. After extensive rehabilitation, Bleill returned to Indiana in August of 2008, where he attacked his new life head-on. This new life included employment as the Indianapolis Colts Community Spokesperson.

Indianapolis Colts Owner, Jim Irsay, has described Bleill as “very talented, bright-eyed, and skilled,” and Josh now travels the country to spread his message of hope, “one step at a time.”
