My blog roll got out of control. I tried organizing it, but that just failed. So I decided to include all sorts of links here for everyone. My blog roll is going to be exclusively for those writers with which I am regularly interacting. This page will include those links and all others.
All links embedded behind a company’s or person’s name that isn’t part of the blog name is a link to that Twitter account. A list within a list.
Content Management Industry Blogs
e-Discovery Team: While not core to Content Management, and written by a lawyer, this blog is essential reading if you want to try and keep up with the e-Discovery world. Ralph Losey is a pretty smart guy and dealing with the realities on a regular basis.
Informata: Jesse Wilkins focuses on Records Management, but knows ECM and Social Media as well. He speaks regularly out there at different AIIM and ARMA events. He has been too busy to post regularly, but when he does, it can be quite informative.
The Real Story Group: Okay, an analyst blog…but a GOOD analyst blog. Formerly known as CMS Watch, this is a gifted collection of thinkers in the space.
Brilliant Leap: Written primarily by Virginia Backaitis, a recruiter, this blog closely follows the ups and downs of Documentum in order to best serve their clients. Usually some insightful posts on the current state of Documentum and the market.
Content Perspective: Alexandra Larsson is a Documentum practitioner for the Swedish Armed Forces. She plays with some cutting edge applications and shares her experiences.
dm_misc: Like Johnny Gee, Scott Roth is another local Washington, DC Documentum consultant/blogger. While not as old as other blogs on this list, Scott has a TON of very technical and useful content. If you get into the nitty-gritty of Documentum, you need to read this blog religiously.
Documentum Cookbook: Some useful tips up there, if infrequently updated.
Infinite Blend: John Webber focuses on the consulting and design phases of Documentum with a broader look at Information Management as a whole.
Me and Content Management: Some insightful writings about Content Management and how Documentum fits into the bigger picture.
For these and more, check this list of Documentum Blogs on the EMC Developer Network.
EMC Employee Blogs
Andrew Chapman: Andrew writes the blog MemorableURL.com, formerly known as Never Talk When You Can Nod. Andrew is a senior product manager with IIG/Documentum, specializing in SharePoint. He also has developed a healthy fascination with the cloud.
Confessions of an eBiz Junkie: Written by EMC’s Director of Social Strategy, Len Devanna, the practical side of social media is explored. Len is always looking for new things to try and knows that what bloggers want more than anything, except for Internet, is an espresso bar.
Cornelia Davis: Cornelia is a brilliant ex-Documentum architect that moved to EMC’s CTO office. Some of the things she works on is truly amazing and I always try and catch her when she speaks, even if I have to think really hard to understand it all at times.
Tech Industry Blogs
A Journey In Social Media: This is a great blog/journal by Chuck Hollis of EMC. While the blog is officially retired, it has a huge amount of valuable posts and shows the evolution of the Enterprise 2.0 efforts at EMC.
assertTrue(): Kas Thomas, formerly of CMS Watch/The Real Story Group is now the Technology Evangelist at Day Software, recently acquired by Adobe. He’s a smart guy and still keeps his hands dirty with Java.
Craig’s Musings: Craig Randall works at Adobe and is a former architect at Documentum. He is a smart guy and is someone to whom I listen when he speaks. He used to talk more about Content Management, but less so at Adobe. Still interesting though.
Infovark: A startup in my local area, they have created a useful tool for sharing information within the organization. They have many interesting thoughts on Enterprise 2.0, Collaboration, and the old standby, Content Management.
IT Project Failures: A ZDNet blog, this is a great blog to follow if you want to learn what not to do when managing an IT project.
James McGovern: I am listing James’s name instead of his blog name, which is Enterprise Architecture: From Incite comes Insight. James is smart and writes on a variety of topics. Be warned though, he can be belligerent and isn’t concerned about keeping it civil if he thinks it will further the debate. He has eased up a bit after a blogging break. There is a lot of value in what he writes though.
