    8. 8. Dirty Techie bit (Lessons learned) <ul><li>Use Linux/AIX (much better Websphere / filesystem performance ) </li></ul><ul><li>Use a reverse caching and compression proxy or your network will complain (great performance booster ) </li></ul><ul><li>Go beyond documentation : discover bookmark-let urls, community cards (like person cards) and more </li></ul><ul><li>Overuse it, integrate people-cards and bookmark-lets in existing application. Wherever it makes sense </li></ul>
