Hi all - Back in the old days, Lotus Development Corp. provided a benefit to all its employees - a 1 month sabbatical after 6 years and another one after 17 (I think). At the time, I didn't even think I'd make it to #1, but I did (that was the family trip to Italy), but here I am about to take #2, thankfully "grandfathered" in after IBM acquired Lotus. So, I will be out from Oct 11 - Nov 11 learning how to build my own guitar in 3 weeks up in Vermont. Reportedly, there is no cell tower nearby but there is wifi, so I hope to post progress on my efforts to my personal blog. If I end up doing that, I will post the url here again and tweet it, of course.
Until then - take care and "see you" when I get back, refreshed and ready to take on Lotusphere. Maybe the stock market will have recovered by then and the Red Sox will have another trophy!
Program Director, Lotus Software UX
