I myself won’t be there – the extra time away from paid work (on top of ILUG2008, 4-6 June) and the cost of this conference is simply too much for my business to bear.  The timing is a great shame in that regard!  

However, I do hope that the Technical Conference is a success, as it would be awesome to have a mid-year “mini-Lotusphere” in Europe on an ongoing basis…
