Still trying to explain Domino - maybe this ORIGNIAL launch poster could help

I always kept at least one copy of the marketing stuff Lotus sent me to give out to customers.

For the first time in almost 15 years I re-opened this envelope, it came from "Lotus Development" who were then located in Kent Street, Sydney...

According to the poster: "What is Domino?"

"Lotus Domino is the ultimate Internet/Intranet Web, messaging and cross-platform application server."

Maybe IBM could learn a little something from this, and for all the people who have been asking what IS Domino, well - there's the simple answer!

<deep sigh>

Darn it. You've dumped me back into the "coulda been a contenda" daydreamland.

@1, Craig: LOL - Mate, there's more ... "Why Domino Dominates", a comparison with Exchange and Netscape. I'll post that one when I have a few minutes :-)

Now that is advertising! Absolutely perfect. Imagine seeing this in an airport. Post the "why domino dominates" and let Ed Brill see it..

@3, Rchard: I'm sure Ed has seen the original 'Why Domino Dominates' series, I wonder if that was the inspiration for the Notes 7 campaign of the same name. Anyway - I've posted the original now: http://www.matnewman.com/Webs/personal/matblog.nsf/dx/05102010050239MNEP6R.htm
