Planning a SharePoint Saturday: A recap of #SPSNH

Planning a SharePoint Saturday: A recap of #SPSNH

We are now almost a month removed from SPSNH and it has been just enough time for the glow to start to fade and for life to start getting back to normal.  The event was wildly successful and somehow managed to receive nothing but positive reviews.  There were a few things that I noted that are worth mentioning: 1.) Drop off between registration and attendance was between 30-40%.  2.) Doing 6 keynotes instead of 1 made the day interesting, but…

Holy time gap in posting!

Holy time gap in posting!

It has been almost 6 weeks since my last post and it is time to bring to light what has been going on in my world during that time.  While I am not someone who discusses my employer regularly on my blog, I joined Sentri 6 months ago and couldn’t be happier.  Especially in light of recent developments.  Some of you may have noticed the press release, twitter storms, webcasts, etc about Sentri’s acquisition of the KMA SharePoint Practice.  Over…

Google Search plus Your World: My soap box, then a solution

Google Search plus Your World: My soap box, then a solution

Anyone who has ever read my blog knows that I am not above getting on my soapbox and wailing on and on about injustices and poor design decisions.  Welcome to one of those times… It’s now been 5 days since the launch of the “Search plus Your World” and I finally figured out exactly how to undo what Google has pushed down on us. Firstly, lets be clear in the fact that Google pushed out a new feature set that…

1941 days later: Gilad Schalit is finally home

1941 days later: Gilad Schalit is finally home

I normally keep my personal views on world happenings and politics out of this medium, but today is a very special day, so please feel free to disregard this post if you want but I feel that I must share my views on this topic. At the beginning of June 2006 I ended my time as a USY Advisor after more than 10 years of working with Jewish teenagers.  Much like my passion for technology, my passion for informal Jewish…

How SharePoint Governance is like a moose in a swimming pool

How SharePoint Governance is like a moose in a swimming pool

I was watching the news last night and a story came on about a man in Manchester, NH (about 30 minutes from my house) who heard a noise that was coming from his backyard, and when he turned on this lights he found a Moose in his backyard.  The moose was spooked by the sudden flood of light and charged through his fence and directly into the man’s swimming pool. The man from didn’t have many options going in to…

Apples and Mangos and Raspberries, oh my! A fun day of fruit…

I spent a good portion of my day watching phones update today.   My iPhone 3GS had finally ground to a halt and I decided to go back to baseline and reimage it.  It took almost 2 hours for my iPhone to reinstall the base iOS and restore a backup, but at the end it is performing like a new phone.  I highly recommend doing that every 6 months to improve performance of your iPhone. The really big news of the…

Breaking the silence–a personal note

Breaking the silence–a personal note

Some people have noticed the unusual lull in my posting.  Others are probably wondering why in the world they are still reading after the title doesn’t have anything to do with SharePoint. The out of the norm silence is due to several things happening in my personal world, which I normally try to keep out of my blogging, but since this has a direct correlation to my SharePoint community involvement I have decided to share it here. Since my vacation…

Office Web Apps Service Pack 1 is here!

Office Web Apps Service Pack 1 is here!

It has almost gone overlooked, but Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010 are not the only products to get a Service Pack 1 release today.  I know that the Office Web Apps are a bolt on to SharePoint 2010 and so they don’t get a whole lot of attention, but from an end user feature enhancement perspective, I am almost more excited about the Office Web Apps SP1 than anything else released today (Office 365 not withstanding). Sourced directly from Microsoft’s…
