    Greetings, Geeks!

    Tri-State Lotus User Group are having their annual day-long event in New York on 11 October. Attendee registration is free!

    I did a session at last year's gathering, it was a terrific group of sessions, and a great chance to really interact with the "showcase" sponsors.

    This year I'm doing a session titled "Cloud" Computing with Notes: Using Google APIs to get stuff done. Here's the abstract:

    If you're like many, many people these days, more and more of your data (email, calendar entries, documents, photos, YouTube videos...) are living somewhere in the world on a server owned by Google. What if you want to write Notes or Domino apps that "reach out" to the Google cloud? Is it possible to store, access, synchronize your Google assets from a Notes agent? The answer is "YES!" All of Google's services are accessible via XML-based REST APIs over HTTP, and Google has provided some nice, client-side object-oriented class libraries for us to use. If you’re nervous about letting Google hold all your data, or if you just want to learn something about REST APIs and object-oriented web services interfaces, come to this session to see some cool demos, and learn how to get started with your own Google code. While this session is mostly for developers with some experience with Java, anyone interested in the architecture and functionality of REST and Google will find something to learn.

    can you put it in a notes agent or is that still an issue? (I'm guess it's still an issue).

    So far as I know, still not possible without solving the exception from the SecurityManager. I haven't tried it in a while, though
