LotusSphere

So, I'm in the midst of my 3rd year at my current gig, at EMC2 in Nashua, NH.
I've pretty much spent the entire time working on our Email archiving product line.

For the third straight year, I've signed up to go to LotusSphere in Orlando, next month.
The past two years, I had to bow out at the last minute, mainly due to other work pressures. Though our products support Domino, and I sometimes dabble and consult/troubleshoot, it's not my main focus on a daily basis.

I attended the first half dozen or so LotusSpheres, as a member of the development team. I haven't been back since I left IBM, shortly after LotusSphere in 1999, just as R5 was wrapping up.

They all sort of run together in my mind, apart from the very first one, which was held at a different time of year and was much, much smaller than all the subsequent ones...

I think it would be fun to go back, and see how things have evolved in the past 8 years ( has it really been that long???). It will be kind of weird standing on the outside looking in. I hope to connect with some old friends and make some new ones. I might even make it this year.

Any one know if the Lotus Notes (aka Red Box Panic) have a gig this year??

Word has it that there will be a "JamFest" featuring Red Box Panic++. The ++ means it's open to all, pick-up band style They did two nights last year, and I stood in for a few songs on guitar. Not sure what's in store this time.

Guess I'll see you there. We can talk archiving, which is my focus now, too. Or not ;-)
