In the Wheelhouse: Are You Up for Sharing Your iThusiasm?

In searching for a topic to cover, I thought I'd do a bit of a 180 with this edition of Wheelhouse. I want to talk about how we connect with each other. Not in a personal sense, but a practical one.


I had a conversation a few weeks ago with some IBM i writing peers. The discussion turned to how we can get people informed about IBM i, specifically the content that we create.
