GoogleIt Mail IT Print IT PermaLinkBest of SnTT Awards: The Categories
08:39:27 PM

As I mentioned last week, I've been considering initiating an informal "Best of Show 'n Tell Thursday" awards series, and the responses have been all positive, so yes... let's get it under way.

The first thing we need to do is figure out what categories we want to do awards for. Three obvious choices come to mind, so I'll just start by listing them:

  • Best Notes and Domino Development Tip

  • Best Notes and Domino Administration Tip

  • Best Notes and Domino User Tip

But really, I think a more fine-grained division is probably appropriate, particularly with development. It's pretty easy to divide that into web and Notes client sub-categories, and why not sub-categories for LotusScript, Java, @formula and JavaScript? For that matter, why not subdivide web development further, into AJAX and conventional? But are we getting too fine with the distinctions? My idea is that we'll have just a few categories open for nomination and voting at any one time, spreading out the buzz over time, so the more categories the merrier IMHO.

And of course, what about SameTime, QuickPlace, and even (gasp!) Workplace? If tips are being generated, I think we should recognize them. And if tips aren't being generated, maybe we can encourage some if we say we're planning to do awards. No, we're not offering fabulous prizes, just a little bit of recognition and some links, but still I think if this idea works for Notes and Domino we can make it work for other parts of the Lotus portfolio.

Your thoughts on all of this, how fine to break down categories, how many categories, non-Notes/Domino topics, and your specific category suggestions... all welcome, of course!

Oh, by the way... we're up to 395 posts in the SnTT aggregator now. It's up sustantially from just a few weeks ago as a result of several people registering their feeds or getting their tags right so that their backlogs of posts have finally appeared.
