It’s a big day for Seamus. There has been a very important addition to his family today.
No, not the McManus family. The Cloud Family.
What’s that? No, Cloud is not the maiden surname of Mrs. Seamus McManus. Allow me to clarify: I’m talking about Cloud Computing. Yes, that’s right. Our Seamus is the father of Cloud Computing. I know the Pulse fans know all about it from the session "Aligning IT to Business - Competitive Advantage of Cloud Computing" that was featured at Pulse 2009 and Pulse Comes to You local events.
I have been thinking of Seamus a lot lately in anticipation of the arrival of this new addition christened, IBM CloudBurst. I really wanted to congratulate him, you know, pay my respects. And invite him to the webcast scheduled in honor of the arrival next Thursday. It’s going to be a big hit. BTW – you’re all invited, too.
So I did what anyone would do when looking for someone.
I looked Seamus up on Facebook.
To my dismay, my search netted eleven, yes - eleven Seamus McManuses. Who knew the name Seamus McManus was all that common? I only know of one.
I also know this:
If Seamus were a female, I would have found her on the first try. I know this for a fact because me and most of my lady friends of the hitched marital status include our maiden names on our Facebook profiles so long lost buddies can find us. It works. My BFF from 1st grade that I haven’t spoke to in about 20 years recently found me. No, she didn’t write LYLAS on my wall . . . yet.
Alas, most of the Seamus’s on Facebook have the cartoon instead of a personalized picture, so I still haven’t been able to connect with our hero. Can you imagine if my well-intended sentiments on the bouncing baby . . . . nebula? . . . (I don’t even know) went to the wrong guy? Embarrassing.
So will the real Seamus McManus please stand up?
Ok everybody. Let’s all give him a round of applause. Well done!
(And upload a personalized photo on your FB profile, already!)

So. We picked a guest speaker for Pulse, one of IBM’s flagship conferences. And this time it’s not a sports hero. This time we picked someone more renowned for his serious passion to save the world. For real. Our dude is busting his rump to save us from the fire and brimstone we’ll be swimming in when all the glaciers melt. And since we here at IBM have been talking the talk of building a smarter planet, I’m thinking our choice makes a lot of sense. Because the world wouldn’t be so smart if we all got dead. There’d be all these data centers floating about aimlessly. Just saying.
Ladies and Gentleman of the blogosphere, please put your fingertips on your keyboard and prepare to tell the rest of the interwebs that we are honored to host:
But if says he’s building an arc, I’m still not buying stock in the big box home improvement center that’s breeding grackles in its 40 acre parking lot. They’re chasing away all the song birds. I’m just saying.

So this week, the United States had a big moment. You know, the one right before Barack Obama was supposed to surrender his Blackberry. Yep, the oath. Well, technically we had two moments since he re-took the oath on Wednesday. But today is Friday, and as Mr. President has rolled up his sleeves to get to work on all his campaign promises and more, we humble IBMers continue ours.
With less than 15 days away from the second annual Pulse conference, some of us are just a tad anxious as we close in on the home stretch to February 8th. After all, Pulse 2008 was such a smashing success and we promised to make Pulse 2009 even more fantastic. That was a big promise. One we intend to make good on.
But I confess: we had a little help. From the world.
Amazing that a world with all its problems from global warming, to economic crisis to dwindling food, water, and energy resources would have the bandwidth to offer our little show a hand. You know what they say: “You want something done, give it to a busy world, right?” Or something like that, anyway.
The world may be getting busier, but it’s also getting smarter. And more instrumented and more interconnected. This realization led us to build Pulse through the lens of a busier, more challenged, but smarter planet. That’s when the Pulse team had a little moment of our own – our “light- bulb” moment, if you will.
Without giving too much away, I’ll assure you gentle blog readers that when you come to Pulse next month, you can expect to have your own moment: the moment when you realize just how the planet is becoming smarter with service management through a dynamic infrastructure - and what it means to you, your family, your community, and your business.
Joining the Pulse News Network for the duration of the conference are television journalists, Forrest Sawyer and SuChin Pak, who will be breaking all the big stories at Pulse, and they’ll want to know:
“Where you when you experienced the moment?”
See the three-part, Pulse News Network interview with Al Zollar: “Smarter infrastructure is by far our best path to creating new jobs and stimulating growth. We at IBM were asked to map this out by President-elect Barack Obama's transition team and our research shows that a $30 billion stimulus investment in just three areas -- smart grids, health-care IT and broadband -- could yield almost one million new jobs within one year.” Sam Palmisano Wall Street Journal, January 13, 2009 Oh, and by the way, if you haven't heard, Obama got to keep his Blackberry.

IBM is proud to announce that Michael Phelps will address the audience at Pulse 2009 in Las Vegas, NV.
On August 16, 2008 Michael Phelps etched his name in Olympic history by winning his eighth gold medal of the Beijing Olympic Games, surpassing Mark Spitz for the most gold medals in a single Olympics. Seven of his eight wins set new world records, and with the addition of his six gold medals from the 2004 Olympics, Phelps has now won the most Olympic gold medals in history.
Phelps has been making waves in the world of sports since he was young. He tied the record for the most medals at a single Olympics in the 2004 Athens Summer Olympic Games when he earned six gold medals and eight medals overall. Already a sports legend at the age of 22, he has been named World Swimmer of the Year for three out of the last four years (2003, 2004, and 2006).
Although he is young, he has already had a lifetime of experiences—in the pool and out. He founded “Swim with the Stars”—the first ever Olympic Swimming Tour that travels the country to give kids the opportunity to learn from the best. He is also a national spokesperson for the Boys & Girls Clubs.
Phelps is the illustration of dedication and passion, practicing 365 days a year. His results speak for themselves.

I’m going to predict that the people who know me
are going to LOL when they read this blog because I don’t tweet. This is ironic
because I am a certifiable Internet JUNKIE! For proof of this, I met by best
friends online and talk to them more than the people in my house. And when I do
see my online BFFs in person, we have our
But Twitter has never been my thing. I often wonder if I need to be indoctrinated at some social media therapy center so that I can keep my job as marketing communications specialist. Tiffany Winman, feel free to reply with any recommendations here or on my Facebook Wall.
Ahh, Facebook. Definitely more my speed. Perhaps there is a way to tweet via Facebook that I just haven’t learned yet. Tiff?
Ok, ok. So I have tweeted some for Pulse, if not much from my own neglected Twitter account. Tiffany, our social media guru, taught me how to use a few cool tools, like HootSuite, which updates status with Twitter and Facebook at the same time – which I loooove. A working IBMer mom of two littles, I am all about multi-tasking. You know, two tweeting birds: one stone. Check it out if you have the Twitter and/or Facebook Junkie Monkey on your back.
Take from me (or don't): there is no shame in being
clueless as to just what the heck the Twitter fuss is all about. But, if you
are attending Pulse this year, you should care.
This conference is going to be huge. Pulse will be host to over 5000 attendees and feature over 300 client and IBM Business Partner presentations. So while your ticket to Pulse can provide a glimpse of what the near future will look like from the most uber-intelligent Tech and Business experts, you are still going to miss a lot because it is impossible to be in more than one place at a time.
Unless you use Twitter. Twitter is the closest thing to time
travel that we have right now. And if aren't planning to travel to Pulse
First Things First. Get a Twitter Account, Already!
This is painless and only takes a minute. Do it now, K? THX!
Use Hashtags in Your Tweets
Tagging your tweets ensures that your input is included in search results on your subject matter. And you want this. People don’t tweet because they want to be wallflowers. So they use hashtags.
Always wanted to know what a hashtag was but were too busy to Google it? A hashtag is just a tag included inline with your status update.
Twitter tags are called hashtags because they are preceded by the "#" character. The “#” prefix is called the hash (mark) and in Twitter messages it is immediately followed, without a space, by topic or issue you want to tag for others to find. Together, you have a code called a “Hashtag.”
Don’t even ask me why it is a hashtag and not a poundtag. IDK.
Use the following HASHTAGS in your tweets during Pulse:
#ibmpulse #svcmgmt #dyninfra #ibmtivoli #ibmrational #ibmstorage #ibmsecurity #ibmcloud #greenit #tivuser #assetmgmt #maximo #systemz #tivz #taddm #netcool #midmkt #omegamon #tbsm

I was unable to make the Business Partner Summit because I got into town too late - but I heard I missed one heckuva a time. Thanks to Felicity Carson for providing the following summary of the largest Tivoli Business Partner Summit to-date
Over 500 Tivoli Business Partners showed their commitment to IBM service management by attending the Pulse Business Partner Summit, making it the largest gathering of Tivoli business partners to date.

If you ever read this blog before, you already know that many of the guest celebrity speakers that have joined the Pulse or PCTY agenda have written at least one book. While the subject matter of the books by our guest speakers are mainly biographical with commentary on business, culture, and politics, none of our past speakers have been primarily fiction writers. This makes a lot of sense because we don’t do fiction at Pulse. On the contrary, we make great effort to demonstrate the reality of how Integrated Service Management is helping to build a smarter planet today.
Our colleagues in India are getting innovative with the recipe this week at PCTY in Delhi and Mumbai and are hosting guest speaker Chetan Bhagat, the best selling English language novelist in India’s history.
As a big fan of the first amendment to the US Constitution and the innate desire for humans to communicate thoughts, given the choice between resting idle or reading what is handed to me, I’ll read anything from a toddler’s board book to an electronics catalogue. However, like a moth to the flame, the fiction junkie in me is drawn to made-up stories of all genres. Naturally I am intrigued by the choice in celebrity guest speaker at PCTY India.
If you are lucky enough to attend PCTY in Delhi or Mumbai this week, give us your feedback on anything from the latest analyst insights, industrial expertise, technology and service offerings presented by the Tivoli team in India, and of course guest speaker, Chetan Bhagat, who plans to deliver a satirical speech about, “Riding out the Tough Times.”
I haven’t yet read anything by Mr. Bhagat, but I do know that I care not to ride out any tough time without the accompaniment of satire.

With summer vacation coming to close, the kids are heading back to school, and once again it’s time to prepare for the harvest. For some, it’s a bittersweet time as kids venture out into the wildernesses of kindergarten through college. For others, it’s a welcome return to a routine of days begun without Finneas and Ferb, followed by the freedom to indulge in an intense focus on work without the whiny pitches of, “Maaahhhhmmeeeeeeeee! I need a snnnaaa-aaack” at regular intervals.
I hope you all had a good summer. Maybe you took a vacation. Me? If you’d been reading my blogs you won’t be surprised to hear that Central Texas destroyed every one of its existing heat records dating back to 1854, and along with it, my desire for my annual beach trip.
Heat exhaustion can do strange things to a person. Some see things like a mirage in a desert. Others might hear ringing in their ears. When I saw my vehicle’s thermostat register 130 F in my driveway, I listened for fire truck sirens.
Instead I heard the call of the wild, which emphatically told me to head north and keep going until I reached a glacier or something. Call of the wild? More like call of the brilliant ideas!
I was really glad I answered that call. It led me to a cabin in the North Woods of Minnesota on Lake Superior. Ok, it’s not a glacier but it used to be. After chilling for a while (under wool blankets!), I returned home recharged and ready for the harvest. For Pulse, our harvest goals include recruiting 300 Service Management experts to speak at Pulse 2010 by October 16.
Have you heard our call for brilliant ideas? It goes like this:
ME: Calling All Service Management experts to propose topics to present at Pulse 2010. Submit proposals to http://www.ibm.com/software/tivoli/pulse/
300 proposals reflecting brilliant expertise on the following themes will be notified of acceptance for Pulse 2010 by November 16, 2009.

Service Management and Information Technology Stream
Service Management for Enterprise Operations Stream

Clients should submit an abstract of 100 words that reflects a well- organized, well-written description of what the presentation will cover.

I know what you’re thinking, “Jen’s been wasting time on Facebook again.” But it’s not like that, ya’ll. While planning out a strategy for Pulse 2010 communications, I decided to try and get to know some of the new friends that www.facebook.com/ibmpulse has made lately. It’s important to know your audience before blasting off something awkward in social cyberspace that provokes an encore performance from Keyboard Cat.
