I will tell you that I do get "pinned down" by  customers during
Lotusphere.  Usually attempting to solve an application deployment issue or
system deployment issue.  I enjoy the opportunity to help our customers
with these solutions but I should note that this type of service is not
generally available via support.

I haven't been but my boss (Alan - who Chris has met) loves LotusSphere.
We'd actually rather not have him go but since he is our boss we can't do
much about it.  It is my impression that there is a lot of benefit, my
problem is that my boss has a tendency to get caught up in all the futures
or really exotic stuff that isn't really applicable to what we are
attempting to accomplish here.  Having said that (and I wonder why I never
get promoted) I think there are a lot of things - with what you are doing
with QP and ST (do I have to use the new name?) and Domino I'd think this
would be a good thing.

Regardless, you might mention us and Alan.......it might carry some weight
with Chris...........if not, don't let me know....my ego is taking a
beating this week.....

Thank you for your response.  I appreciate it.

My boss, and I, like our beers as much as the next fellow.  However, one
paragraph for the conference benefits, and two for the social aspects
probably is not a marketing technique that will impress him in this tight
budget period.  He already won't let me go to conferences in exotic places
like Marcos Island - calls it a 'compucruise'.  Indianapolis - now that's
a turn on.  Means business.

Would approaching this like how I approach COMMON be a good thing?  I pick
the sessions I would go to and then decide if it is worth it?  Does their
web site show their session grid?

It's never too late.  I think registration is still open.  Airfare at this
late date might kill you though.

I have been going to Lotusphere for 3 years now.  I have always thought it
was a benefit.  It is a real good mix of people at all levels and skills.
It is a great place to get your questions answered. They have things set
so that you can talk to the developers of Notes/Domino face-to-face.

The one year, I almost ran into Francis Ford Coppla (sp?) after the
session.  That was way cool.  First time I ever got to see somebody that
famous that close up.  Also, the parties on Wednesday night make it all
worth it.

It is not iSeries specific though.  They usually have the Domino iSeries
people there though on the show floor.  We usually end up asking them a
questions every year.  Plus they (iSeries people) usually have a 'special'
party of their own one night during the week.  The one year, we got to go
to the House of Blues and see Terry Bradshaw do a little stand-up act.  He
actually is pretty funny!  That was the year they had all kinds of sports
legends there.

Pretty much a safe bet that it's too late this year, but is LotusSphere
worth it?  If so, what kind of audience:  Developers, Systems Analysts, VP
of IS, help desk, power user, other line of business people.
