Lotusphere sessions – a nice problem to have
I won’t be getting much sympathy from my colleagues who aren’t attending… sorry guys. Last night I started working on an annual dilemma… which Lotusphere sessions to attend. I’ve said before that this is the hallmark of a great event, being spoilt for choice. I’ve identified fifty-four (yes, 54) sessions that I want to attend, but the four-day schedule means I can only attend eighteen. Prioritising is tricky when you don’t want to miss anything, but I shouldn’t be complaining (I’m not, this is a nice ‘problem’ to have).
Also of note this year is the fact that the opening general session (featuring Mike Rhodin and his team, a guest speaker – last year it was Neil Armstrong – and a heap of announcements) is having to be repeated to accommodate everyone – a happy symptom of the ever-increasing attendance. Let me just repeat that – ever-increasing attendance.
My frolleague Brendan Tutt and I will be live-blogging again this year (in our IBM-internal Lotusphere blog), and I’ll paste the highlights into this blog too.
Addendum: ooops, I nearly forget to thank Ben Langhinrichs of Geniisoft for once again providing the Lotusphere session application for Notes, a nifty tool which lists the sessions and what else is going on at the same time, and then adds the selected sessions to your Notes calendar. Thanks Ben.
