Ian's blog is called "Marketing at Eclipse"...
Lots of people know about IBM's commitment to Eclipse but the awareness is typically of IBM Rational developer tools. What I find intriguing is the rising prominence of Eclipse in the Lotus division.Also of note: a Notes 8 session from IBM at next month's EclipseCon.
It is pretty clear to me that IBM Lotus is executing on a platform strategy that spans Lotus Notes, Sametime and their new Symphony product line. At the heart of this strategy is Eclipse RCP.
The nice thing to see is that Lotus seems to really be benefiting from a common integration platform based on Eclipse.
