MWLUG Is Social and Community

MWLUG 2012 was held last week at the Omni William Penn Hotel.  It was the most attended MWLUG so far.  Hopefully, next year in Indianapolis we will exceed this year's attendance.  We as IBM professionals talk about Social Business and Social Collaboration, but it is venues like MWLUG and other LUGs where the true sense of social occurs.  It is friends and colleagues meeting together for a common focus.  Even competitors at MWLUG were meeting together and having lunch.  It is all about us humans as a social beings.  Making some like MWLUG possible requires the efforts of many within our community including IBM Partners, Customers, and IBMers plus volunteers and others.  I would like to take the time to list all those who were involved, some were in the background and did not attend MWLUG 2012.  I just hope I did not miss anyone.  Special thanks to 4C Technologies and Sherpa Software:
