I'm just about to head out the door for INV106, the Notes/Domino roadmap session. I am really pleased with where we are at with the Notes/Domino product strategy, and believe you will be as well.
At 1:30 PM, I'll be hosting our Lotusphere Idol! auditions in the Dolphin North Hemisphere. We selected several finalists to audition for a real speaking slot on Thursday morning, and they've produced some excellent tryout material.
At 4:15 today, we are having a customer success stories panel discussion, in Dolphin Southern III. The title is "selling Lotus internally" -- sounds very familiar to me and to many of you as well.
I have been reading the blogs and some of the press coverage from yesterday. It's clear that we have a job to do this week to expand on all the news from the opening general session. For those who are developers, I strongly want to encourage you to plan to attend the app dev mini-keynote on Thursday morning, where Kevin Cavanaugh will help tie the whole message together. Just the fact that this mini-keynote exists is strong evidence of how much renewal Lotus has put into the message of "developers, developers, developers".
Have a great day -- more blog entries to come!
