- Meeting all my Lotus colleagues
- Meeting new Lotus colleagues
- Mike J Fox's Opening Session Presentation
- Guy Kawasaki's Opening Session Presentation at IBM Connect 2012
- MWLUG Gathering on Tuesday, 17 fellow Lotus Geeks and Beer. What can I say. Russ Mather thanks for the beer.
- The incorporation of OpenSocial technology into the next version of Domino
- Social Mail client, (just make the iNotes client the official client for Domino)
- The Notes plugin for the iNotes client
- A chance at the Ask the Developer to request the ability for ISVs to create custom XWork/Domino installation packages. Contact me if you are interested. Need to create enough interest.
- More business focused sessions.
This year unlike previous years, I entered in most of the showcase vendor raffles, but
- I lost the GBS Kindle Fire and I was so close, I woman who pick just before me won
- Losing the iPad, iPhone, iPod, HTC Tablet Pro raffle
- Social Business for SMB session was only opened to the press. It would have been nice if Business Partners can attend given that the Business Partners are the one in the trenches in the SMB market.
- As the organizer of MWLUG I know how hard it is to organize an event like Lotusphere, but would it hurt to have the old used Lotusphere signs on the highway exits to point to the auxiliary parking. Many went to Blizzard Beach instead and waste an hour of travel time including myself.
- The bad PR disaster that IBM created with Andrew's and Gabriel's session
- WiFi was down and down so many times
- The attendance was down definitely. Many I know did not attend. There was so many IBMers that I figure 50% of the attendees that I past by or met were IBMers.
- The 750 to 1000 students got preferred seating in the front
- Too many Connections sessions
- An ingrained images of a naked Darren Duke twittering during the OGS.
