Gert ter Burg has been in charge of one of the most comprehensive sites about GroupWise for 11 years – if you don’t know about http://gwcheck.com, then get over there and check it out!
One of Gert’s many contributions to the GroupWise communities over the years has been one-on-one interviews with influential names in the GroupWise world, ranging from Novell/Attachmate top dogs, product managers, engineers, third-party vendors, consultants and administrators. Here at Caledonia, we’ve helped Gert compile those interviews into a little book called Interviewing the GroupWise Community. Caledonia is selling this book on Gert’s behalf, with profits going directly to Gert himself. Go purchase this book here!
However, you have the opportunity than do more than read some interviews about GroupWise. You can also support a cause near and dear to Gert and those of us here at Caledonia. Gert manages to do all of the great things he does to support GroupWise, while dealing with Parkinson’s disease in his own life.
Here’s what Gert has to say about his condition:
“I found out to have Parkinson Disease / PD in february 2006. It is genetic in our family. There are great names to have PD as well, such as Michael J. Fox, the previous Pope, Maurice White – lead singer of Earth Wind and Fire, Janet Reno, Salvador Dali, Mao Zedong. If you have any Questions on PD, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org, and perhaps I will put up a page with this info and your questions on the site as well. ”
So, we’re going to make you a deal! For every book we sell on Gert’s behalf, we will also donate $1.00 to the National Parkinson Foundation in Gert’s name through our charitable organization, Navitie House Foundation. We’ll even give you the opportunity during purchase to add additional funds to your donation if you so desire.

Thanks for your support.
