In this cartoon short, Cartman leads the South Park gang down to the Rational Software Conference in the Sunshine State to - well - pick a fight with some techni-brains over the virtues of incrementally adopting model-driven software development and then skinny-dip in the famous fish fountain in the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel.
“The intersection of his brain and reality is the null set,” conclude the over-achieving smarties from Ascendent and iRis before they drop him like he’s hot.
I suppose cartoons don’t have to worry about a Cheesy Poof per diem and travel expenses, but if you’re living
If you are going to RSC, be sure to check out the Tivoli sessions listed below, which detail how we’re building a Dynamic Infrastructure through IBM Service Management to integrate development and operational life cycles in the new Smarter Planet.
You can get the full scoop from Al Zollar, General Manager, Tivoli Software, when he delivers the keynote address on June 2. But watch out for South Park shorties cracking crass jokes in the breakouts, diving for coins in the fountains, or unifying their backends with Jazz at Jelly Rolls.

What is the “Ask
the Experts online Jam”?
During our Ask the Experts Online Jam session we include products such as ITM, ITCAM, SMCz, OMEGAMON, NetView for z/OS, most Netcool products, Tivoli Service Request Manager, CCMDB, TADDM, and products in the area of security, storage management, and asset management, and more.
Here's how it works in brief:
Step 1: A member has a question – usually fairly technical.
To participate in the jam session, you must be a registered member of the TUC. Please register now

Yesterday, I was among 150 other IBMers at the "Tour of Tivoli" at the IBM site in Tucson (see photos). Hosted by Laura Sanders, VP of IBM Tivoli Development, the Tour provided demos of Tivoli Service Management technologies that "make sure our customers can deliver what they said they’d deliver within the time and cost they said they could deliver it," as Laura says.
Basically, the tour functioned as an internal state of the union talk where Laura reaffirmed the vision of Tivoli to lead in the Service Management industry by delivering innovative solutions for building and managing a Dynamic Infrastructure that strongly contributes to IBM's initiative to build a smarter planet.
The activities of the day reinforced this vision in very concrete ways by providing educational sessions and product demos of how Tivoli technologies directly contribute to building a dynamic infrastructure and smarter planet. The scope of the demos covered asset management, storage, security, business resiliency, energy efficiency, information architecture, quality assurance, integration, cloud computing, and virtualization.
The vice presidents of development on Laura's team each developed very creative videos explaining the scope and mission of their organization. Dabbling in edutainment, they used concepts from James Bond, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, American Idol, the Geico Gecko, and Johnny Cash to compete for best video. They were all hilarious and very educational at the same time.
Many IBMers tweeted about the experience using the #tivtour hashtag. See the Twitter Search for #tivtour on Twazzup for a running stream of related tweets and photos. The Tivoli Tour runs at many IBM locations this week and in Brazil on May 29. So you can expect to see more Twitter conversations in the near future. You can view a combined pool of photos across the various geographic locations by viewing the Tour of Tivoli 2009 group on Flickr.
I particularly enjoyed the tour because I had a chance to visit with Raj Subramaniam (@ibmstorage on Twitter) and speak with IBM Distinguished Engineer Tom Clark, the Chief Architect of IBM Storage Software, about future innovative storage solutions that will address cloud computing, dynamic information architectures, and the use of new solid state disk technologies. I also had a chance to get a sneak preview of IBM storage archiving solutions that will hit the market in the near future. I could tell you more, but then I'd have to kill you. ;)
While I was in Tucson, I also had the opportunity to interview two IBM experts on solutions they were demoing:
TSM Fastback video: Alistair Symon, Director of IBM Tivoli Storage Software Development, on IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Fastback (See product information)
Cloud and TSAM video: James Damgar, IBM Software Engineer, on IBM Tivoli service Automation Manager (See product information)
Externally, IBM is sharing much of the same information with the public via two key venues:
