This post is dedicated specifically to IBM Business Partners, but we encourage all security professionals to help make our world a better place to live. So read on.
If you haven’t heard by now, IBM will be talking security at the place where “the world talks security” next week—the RSA 2009 conference. On April 23, Brian Truskowski, GM of Internet Security Systems (ISS), will provide an RSA keynote on “Securing the Smarter Planet.” His talk will address how security professionals are in a key position to enable effective change to create a smarter planet as our world and systems become more instrumented, interconnected, and intelligent.
Listen to the RSA podcast to learn more.
As an IBM Business Partner, you are critical to the success of using innovative security solutions to enable a smarter planet. We'd like you to join us in shaping this conversation and activity in new IBM Security social media channels on ibm.com, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube.
Use this presentation to get a quick overview of these new channels and how you can help.

We have a great new IBM addition to the Twittersphere this week: Dave Bartlett, IBM Vice President of Solutions for Industry Transformation. Dave has been blogging for awhile, but only recently joined Twitter under the handle @davebart.
Redmonk analyst Michael Cote filmed a video with these two on this very topic at Pulse.
Greenmonk analyst Tom Raftery captured Dave on video discussing IBM green solutions.
Please welcome Dave to Twitter with a tweet on your favorite industry topic.

It’s Good Friday, and it not only has been a good, but a GREAT week. Did you hear? IBM made the list of Top 50 social brands for March 2009: “The Social Radar Top 50 measures the most social brands by the number of unique topics of conversation. These brands are top of mind for consumers and bloggers today.”
If you haven’t noticed by now. IBM’s presence is growing more and more in the social media arena. Below are some of the hot topics lighting up this space this month.
The IBM Service Management global conference--Pulse 2009--that was in Vegas this year is hitting the road and starting off in Tokyo, Japan on April 15 and then India on April 24-26. Many more locations are yet to come. To learn more, check out the Pulse blog on adding more Pulse to your life .
IBM is a platinum sponsor of RSA 2009—the conference where the world talks security—and has a host of activities demonstrating how IBM is “Securing the Smarter Planet through a Dynamic Infrastructure.” We’ve launched new IBM Security social networking venues on Twitter and LinkedIn in honor of the conference and are hosting a pre-conference online jam on April 14. You can also learn more from an RSA podcast with Brian Truskowski, General Manager of IBM Internet Security Systems.
Ewwww, that almost sounds as decadent as eating chocolate. If you’re into networking with SOA strategists and architects, learning about real-life examples and benefits of SOA in action, then this event is for you.

You can register for the April 28 or 29 event, but you have to do so by April 17. And hurry, they only have a select number of seats!
Some good news if you were planning on attending the IBM Cognos Forum from May 12-15. Early conference registration was extended to

Personally, I never really got hooked on American Idol, but next month IBM is releasing a Software Development reality TV series at the 2009 Rational Software Conference that I'd love to watch! Yup, I'm a nerd. :) This stuff fascinates me. I'm looking forward to the drama, laughs and intrigue. Get an overview of the new reality TV series and view a trailer with the videos below:
