Due to the stage lighting, I was unable to see much of the audience from the main stage where I was presenting, but I know that many people were taking photos during the presentation.


I'm hoping that some of you who took photos of my presentation would be willing to share these with me.  

Did you attend Lotusphere 2011 in Orlando last week? Did you happen to attend my session: INV208 V=KMT: The Formula for Creating Value with Lotus Software?  If so, I'd like to hear from you.

Please comment. Thanks.

Wondering who the Lotusphere Opening General Session Speaker will be? Wait no longer.

Tonight, I attended the B.A.L.D. Bloggers dinner at River Brewery. In a bold (foolish?) move, I decided to use the wisdom of the crowds to get the inside scoop on the Speaker's identity.

This 5-minute podcast will tell you what I found out.


I just opened my suitcase to find cards and letters from my wife and children. They are wonderful.

When I travel, my family loves to spoil me with cards and letters. Here's today's mail.

As much as I am looking forward to Lotusphere 2010, it's a long time to be away...

Dave Lawrence is the president of Smart Technology Enablers, Inc. His company resells the fantastic Lotus Foundations product that gives a host of Lotus capabilities in one server box.

Now, even the best products can use some tweaking here and there, and Dave's company has found that eProductivity provides a missing ingredient for Foundations.

See what he has to say about improving the Lotus Foundations customer experience:


There's still much to do: presentations to prepare, free software giveaways to pack up, and laptops and Blackberries to sync up. I am looking forward to this year's event, which promises to be the best ever.

Fortunately, I know what I need to do and I have a good action management system to help me stay on top of things.

In addition to blogging, I'm trying to get a bunch of video clips from my recent interview with David Allen loaded up on the web. I'll post them to the Notes On Productivity Blog.

I'll post details of my LS10 sessions shortly.

If you want to meet at LS10, get in touch with me and we'll set something up.
