Quote of the day

by Volker Weber

Picciano is as adept at politics as he is at software development issues -- and the funny thing is, he's straight up about it. There is no spin to figure out. He says what he says and you don't need to spin it.
—Andrew Pollack

I can agree to that. Getting a bit fed up with spin that tries to sell bad news as good news.

I was really impressed that as Lotus CEO he actually turned up at Kimonos (for at least two nights), talked to people, and sang.

This is a leader.

Not a CEO though.

Yep, last Lotus CEO was a guy called Jeff, he liked to think of himself as a former Navy Pilot of flew fighter jets among other things. He was definitely an interesting character. Those were the days..........

Agree with Andrew. EVERYONE I've talked with who has met BobP is impressed with him. That really tells you something.

Joel, those were the times when Notes had exponential growth.

Volker Weber, 2009-01-25

I'd have to agree. I had a long conversation with him as we both left breakfast. I noticed he was wearing Bob's 1st year Lotusphere pin, and I asked him what he thought of it so far. In a nutshell, he was blown away by the thousands of Lotus Uber Geeks (you know who you are) and their dedication.
