The Last of Its Kind, Extinction in the Making
A few years ago at Lotusphere, I picked up a number of Lotus Software hats. Just like the Lotus brand which is fading away into the sunset, all my Lotus Software hats have been lost or have been damaged. My favor was the Lotus Domino 8 cap which was lost on a trip a few years ago. Now I am down to my final Lotus Software hat. I have decided to not wear it since it is the last of its kind and I will preserve it for the archive. But as the Lotus brand is now extincted, so will everything associated with it. Maybe in 30 years, I can go to the Antiques Roadshow and ask how much it is worth. Maybe I can then finally retire from the proceeds of the sale.
