The Birds-of-a-Feather sessions received relatively few evaluations, so the data is a bit less reliable.  Among the top BOFs were: The Lotus Blogging Community; OpenNTF -- An Open Source Community;  Service Data Objects (SDO) Mediators and their use in Building Portlet Apps; and  Notes Plugin for the IBM Workplace Rich Client.
