The SharePoint Conference 2009 has announced it’s first award winner! Robert Chrestensen, of Salient6, has submitted the winning design for the SharePoint Conference design competition. I like Robert’s idea (at least the one that my feeble mind is able to identify) that SharePoint is going through a re-design from the original blue teamsite template to…

Andy Dale’s SharePoint Awards 2009

AIIM – Spreading the SharePoint Love – what?

My relationship with AIIM over the years has been fairly typical, I would guess – maybe a bit more affiliated than some, but not as tightly aligned as others.  I’ve taken some AIIM training classes, I think that I attended my first AIIM conference in about 1998, and I’m tentatively planning on attending the conference…
