I’m going to Lotusphere 2012 (and IBM Connect) because I want to!
Lucky for me, panagenda invited me to help staff their booth (408!) on the showcase floor. I haven’t staffed a booth since Sametime 1.0 – back before the new big dining hall was built. We were in some kind of a tent the whole time. I am thrilled at panagenda’s offer because it will be a great way to catch up with many of you, and because their Marvel client is a good way to manage the Notes client. There have been many times when a customer would ask me ” can I do this or that” to manage the Notes client, and I’ve been able to say “If you get Marvel client, you can do that.”
I also want to go because my new job is still very much about leveraging social business and “mass collaboration” for innovation, so I am hoping to learn from some of the success stories and other presentations.
I’m taking vacation to come to Lotusphere. I know that many people do. Thank goodness my kids and husband know how much I enjoy the community, so they understand. My boss laughed when I told him what I’m doing on my vacation. But, since he did manage me 6 years ago at IBM Lotus, he also understands the excitement.
Only 1 more week until I head to Orlando! 🙂
