Rob, You weren't suppose to pick up on that! It is actually a good thing though having the down time stuff. After spending 7:30am to 6pm (sometimes earlier or later if you go to BOFS) in sessions, it is nice to be able to get away from it all. The site does have the session list on it now: http://www.lotus.com/lotusphere/orlando.nsf/wdocs/lshome03 So go check them out. They usually have a good broad range of topics. They even have some for the bosses. Ed Brill's session on "The Boss Loves Microsoft --Where Does That Leave Lotus?" is a good one. I use to go to COMMON when I was a Programmer/Analyst. It is a nice conference for iSeries specific stuff. The first time I went to Lotusphere, I was blown away by how much better it seemed to be done. And all the extra fanfare that was there. Lotusphere does not nearly have the number of sessions that COMMON does. That can be good or bad. -- Scott Johnson 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?
