IBM HackDay6 is today

October 24th, 2008

Today we had the internal IBM HackDay event for the 6th time and I was part of the group that arranged the local hackday event in Denmark for the third time. I am proud to say that it was my accomplishment that the first local IBM hackday event was held in Denmark in October 2007.

At todays local event we were 10 participants discussing ideas and coming up with hacks to continue with at todays event. The WW event is at 283 projects with 371 participants.

I did some 30 minutes Lotus Notes to Excel hacking to get in the spirit - and then started a discussion on how to achieve better adoption of social software and social media within IBM Denmark. Karl Roche is currently in Denmark and took part in our local event and therefore also in this discussion on social software.

Check out all the pictures from todays event in the Flickr IBM Hackday Pool and my pictures from our local event.

Update: Mary Beth Raven blogs about the Lotus contest part of HackDay6.
