I've been on vacation this week, reading a few book, catching up on a few odd jobs and generally taking it easy. Where possible I have tried to avoid work so I have forbidden myself from downloading new builds of Lotus software to play with. This is quite hard because I love watching as new products take shape, how the new features are added and the design evolves. I'm not just talking about the next version of Lotus Notes either. We have loads of fantastic stuff in the development labs that I can't talk about - but many of them will get their first public peek at Lotusphere 2007 later this month.

So if I can't sate my "need for nerd" by looking at work stuff what can I do? Well on a whim I decided to create my own MySpace account. Knowing it was really for Kidz and that it was owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp I hadn't previously considered it, but I had a surprise. It is actually quite fun. Going from person to person is quite like the old days of the Web when you would just surf for hours with no particular destination in mind (not on work time of course :-). Design wise, so far I haven't moved beyond filling in the defaults and adding a few "friends", but I have had my first "Thanks for the add" comment. Much more fun than professional social networking sites like Linked In and Technorati.

I'm hangin' at Mr Ports' MySpace if you want to find me
