My Version of Lotusphere

I just noticed that the Microsoft Exchange Conference is back.  According to its home page one of the topics they will cover is the " mysterious disappearance" of the conference.

I think Lotusphere sort of disappeared as well in the sense that the conference is not that much about Lotus Notes any more.

What would I like to see?  My kind of Lotusphere would be all about Lotus Notes.  It would include administration and development, no surprise there.  But it would also include business consulting:  sessions by business department as to what Lotus Notes can and did for various companies.  Where the administrative edge one can get from using Lotus Notes works and when it does not and why.  The presenters would be the big consultants: McKinsey, PwC, Ernst & Young, etc.  The ones billing $3-400 per hour, not the Indian outsourcing companies billing $25 per hour.

Perhaps that would give Lotus Notes back the prestige it deserves.

The ReduceMail Pro team is very excited give our full attention to all companies who use Notes mail.

Hey Eugen, 1999 called, they want you back!

Eugen, have you heard of any of the LUGs put on around the world?

MWLUG is just around the corner in Pittsburgh (August 15- 17) and will feature over 35 speakers (a lot of them are also Lotusphere speakers) for 3 days of intense learning (and partying). The cost - $35 plus hotel (I think the hotel is $139 a night).

That is a long way away from the $2200 plus $250 a night that you pay for Lotusphere and you get the same speakers.

While face to face is superior in many ways, another version of Lotusphere would be to record MANY of the sessions (perhaps from user group meetings all around the world too, not just the Orlando conference) and put them up PERMANENTLY on a shared video download site. No lame excuses, IBM -- these days disk is pretty cheap, Internet bandwidth is high and also getting cheaper all the time.
