Good and bad at Lotusphere 2009

by Volker Weber

Just a short list of things on my mind. YMMV:

Small piece of advice for owners of small consumer cameras: turn off the flash when taking pictures of screens and displays. Don't assume you can illuminate a large room. Don't post pictures of people stuffing their face, holding alcoholic beverages, drunks, or those making a fool of themselves. Capture the moment with your heart, but not with your camera. If you need to use the camera, keep the pictures for yourself.

Aside from the Wi-Fi issues, Lotusphere - just - works. It's a great conference. I don't think you can make it much better.

*) Bonus points if you can spot login credentials for Lotusphere Online. Harrummph. Wink, wink.

And the reason it - just - works: Sandra Marcus and her staff.

Thank you for taking the time to explain the Sonos to me and also for your patience explaining what it requires to take a good picture. I hope to one day be half the photographer you are. :-)

On the photographer thing, it's the one-eyed leading the blind. Trust me on that. :-)

Bad: too cold this year.

I would like to add to that: "Bad: too cold outside AND inside this year."

Many of the rooms we're just way too cold especially the showcase ballroom.

they did get cables to the bean bags by the way because i had one.
I agree about the wi-fi it was spotty this year.

Good list, Vowe -- if a bit short. Also good advice on the picture taking. I'm one of those with a cheap shirt pocket camera and I do try to pay attention to turning off the flash and so on.

I always have my camera but rarely take it out and take pictures. It takes me out of the moment and I prefer to be there with what's happening.

I was *in* one of the bean bag chairs and didn't get a cable as they were out by the time I had passed other ones down the row...

Michael, A/C is a luxury that has to "show off". :-)

Keith, you may call it spotty. I call it broken. Networks are broken, if you have to deal with them at all.

Andrew, make it longer.
