Introducing the new IBM Champion Wrangler for ICS!

I'm super excited that this worked out. There are only two people in the company to whom I would entrust MY IBM Champions. And thankfully, one of them is taking over the IBM Champion responsibilities in ICS! He will not take on the other things, like user groups, community, and customer council, so this is purely an IBM Champion thing.

As you may have heard, I recently announced that I'm leaving IBM and I'm off to a new opportunity. When I first joined IBM in 2000, I never dreamed that I'd be here for 17 years! But IBM has nurtured me, supported me, enabled me, and has helped me become the person I am today, and for that I'm eternally grateful. I've worked with some of the brightest people in the industry, and learned so much from them!

Do you want bleedyellow.com? The charity auction has opened 

By René Winkelmeyer | 8/21/17 4:28 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

Some time ago I was fast enough to catch the bleedyellow.com domain when it expired. Nowadays I’ve no use for it – maybe others want it. Instead of just letting the registration expire I’m bringing it to a good cause. If you want it, you can have it – for some money that goes to a charity.
