LotusSphere 2009... Here I Come

Tomorrow begins the first day of IBM's LotusSphere at Disney's Swan and Dolphin resort in Orlando. Looks like I'll be driving it each day. Its about 55 miles one way. I'm not looking forward to the drive, but its good to know that with gas prices coming down it won't be that expensive. There's just too much going on in the personal life to leave the family each night, with my 4 month old being chief culprit.

I'm very much looking forward to seeing current and former colleagues and customers there. There will also be quite a bit of new topics to be covered. IBM has finalized Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5 and announced it at MacWorld recently. That features some wildly new features in the Domino Designer. Some of which I was not too crazy about in the early betas. We'll see how far they have progressed this week.

Anyone else who is going, please be sure to look me up. I'll have my Crackberry with me, so you can email or call. Even comments to this post will arrive neatly in my Gmail for blackberry app.

Party on!
