Ed Brill: eWeek interview with Steve Mills (no fire extinguisher needed) Hey Ed -- thanks in advance for the answers to my questions.
Re "For example, conspiracy theorists out there -- can you tell me which IBM software brands are mentioned and which are not?" I don't think there is any kind of conspiracy; IBM's strategy in this context is very clear. Skim the interview again -- Steve Mills refers to the "Lotus subsidiary" in past-tense and refers only to future-tense IBM Lotus-branded offerings, as do the "Can you see it?" ads that reference Lotus Workplace (and in which words such as "Notes" and "Domino" are not to be found).
