I must say, Lotusphere this year was much, much better than last year. Last year was okay, but I for one came away confused about where Domino fit into the IBM puzzle, and a puzzle it was. This year, from the opening general session, Mike Rhodin and Ambuj Goyal repeatedly drove home key points with strong emphasis on long term Lotus/Domino presence and enhancements, continued support and development, and overall product integration. Workplace Services Express may finally demystify in a practical, affordable, and most of all, manageable test environment what it is that Workplace really brings to the table. Finally, IBM has given us an opportunity to become motivated towards possible Workplace implementation. This light version appears to offer possibly dynamic, streamlined integration of the desktop, file system, web, and all of the notes functionality that we all know and love, from one centralized workspace. And it is all role based and built upon the concept of team management. How cool is that?

I am happy because I was able to hit Epcot, Magic Kindgom, MGM Studios, Sea World, and Islands of Adventure(thanks to the lotusphere party), AND hit over 10 sessions, AND pass the 601 upgrade exam with a nice 92% leaving 32 minutes on the clock, AND win a nice Lotus Notebook Binder(thanks Barbara). I even had time for two massages in the CLP lounge. In summation, this year, the Lotus faithful were not stuck in the smaller, overflowing rooms at the Swan, while all of the Workplace/Websphere sessions were given top billing in the larger Dolphin Ballrooms. It appears that IBM listened, and in doing so, gave precedence to their user base rather than their marketing strategy...or perhaps it is now a perfect world, and these are one in the same.
