Lotusphere – no use crying over spilt milk…

Let’s get this out the way….

I will not be at Lotusphere 2008, despite all my best efforts and those of IBM.  

Whilst I can understand the rationale – we have a lot of business on the go at the moment which really needs my attention – it doesn’t stifle the huge disappointment that I won’t be there to hear the latest news, make and enhance relationships, and to catch up with all of those in the Lotus blogosphere…    I’ve missed the ‘Sphere in the past, but never has it hurt this much.

So, to all who are there, hope you all have an awesome time, and that the huge buzz is more than matched by the announcements made and the event itself.  To those that aren’t, I will be doing my very best to capture what goes on and to present it via the blogs and our Webcast scheduled for 7th February.

Now where’s that bottle 😉
