IBM Champion

I am so pleased to say that I have once again been selected as an IBM Champion.  This is my third year being selected and I am once again included in a great group of people.  See the rest of the Champions here.

From the post:

These individuals are non-IBMers who evangelize IBM solutions, share their knowledge and help grow the community of professionals who are focused on social business and IBM Collaboration Solutions. IBM Champions spend a considerable amount of their own time, energy and resources on community efforts — organizing and leading user group events, answering questions in forums, contributing wiki articles and applications, publishing podcasts, sharing instructional videos and more!

I’ve always liked sharing what I know with others, it’s a great feeling and I usually learn more in the process.  None of us do what we do in order to become IBM Champions, we do it because we want to.  In the spirit of “help grow the community”, I’d like to throw out a challenge.  Are YOU sharing your knowledge?  You should.  I hear from many people that they don’t feel they know enough to share or aren’t experienced enough, but they are.  Everyone is.  You know more than the person who just started, so help them out.  You’ve probably gotten help in one form or another from someone in the community, now it’s your turn.
