Today I would like to say thank you to the one and only Bruce Elgort.  He is a true thought leader and advocate of all things technology.  Obviously Bruce’s greatest contribution to the IBM community has been his work as chairman of OpenNTF.  I am sure everyone knows that OpenNTF wouldn’t be what it is today without Bruce’s involvement.  For me personally, Bruce has always been there to give honest feedback about the features and products I work on as an IBMer.  I trust his opinion and appreciate his honesty and he always provides me with great perspectives on the things I work on.  So #thanksbruce for all that you have done with OpenNTF and all you continue to do for everyone in the community!
