Lotusphere session proposals

by Volker Weber

There are good and bad problems to have. Ed has a good one:

In the infrastructure track which I manage, we've had over 200 submissions -- for 50 speaking slots. The toughest part is that so many of them are good!

If I may make a suggestion: Chose the odd ones, the one most surprising, with the deepest technical content possible. Stuff that people will be talking about even weeks after the conference.

And: Speakers in tuxedos and kilts must be accepted.


I have 70 submissions for the Jumpstart track, and only 14 session slots to fill. This is not going to be easy....

Although Irishmen can also wear kilts, I just dont think my legs will look any good next to Buchans :-)

Ladies... control yourselves

@Paul: anyone's legs would look good next to Wild Bill's! Lord, man, how scary could yours possibly be?!?!?

I wasn't aware that the formal requirements for a session proposal included an outline of the speaker's appearance and wardrobe. But hey, who am I to know?

Come January, will any LS07 attendees out there have space in their hand luggage for a skinny blond Englishman? :o)

Ben you have to come - how else can we scare the Americans than by shouting rude words on the Broadwalk bridge late at night? ;) Plenty of space in my laptop bag for you.

You not coming over Ben?

Paul Mooney, 2006-09-27

Paul, alas, no. I had my turn this year, so no more Lotusphere for me :o(

Kitty - thanks for the offer!
