Google I/O 2010 - is Lotus watching?

by Volker Weber

As I am sitting in my comfy Fatboy watching Google I/O 2010 sessions in HD on my iPad, I wonder, is Lotus watching? Are they realizing how much Lotusphere has to suddenly change?

The session I am currently watching before the conference starts in three hours is one that introduces the App Marketplace. And again, I am thinking, is Lotus watching?

Comments

I hope they are. Sadly they probably are, want to do it, but don't have the "resources" to do it.

I sort of take your point Carl but they could release the LS2010 content to all non attendees by next week if they chose to. Instead they hold it back to promote regional marketing events, some of which have little, if any (? ) LS2010 content

Or am I being too harsh ?

@Sean, my comment was more around the App marketplace than the streaming of sessions. But I take your point on that too.

Carl Tyler, 2010-05-19

No. Releasing LS2010 content now is way too little too late.

Can you watch the keynote on your iPad live?

@vowe, I agree it is too little but as a developer pushing Lotus products I do not believe it is too late - all help is welcomed AND reciprocated

Mariano, it's not on yet. And I am currently on my Mac. I need more windows than one.

Volker Weber, 2010-05-19

Sean, I don't mean to say they shouldn't. But releasing a bunch of PDF files won't be enough to stay on top of this.

@vowe as I said all help gratefull received. anyhow I though that a lot of sessions were recorded ( audio and video ), probably at significant cost

Mariano, not streaming:

Maybe I can get this to work with playing a bit more with the URL, but right now, I am going to watch.

You have asked a variation on that question quite a few times in the past, from the streaming of the Opening General Session to the difficulty in obtaining the sessions PDF's. I believe that they are watching. However, the cynic in me says that in order to do something like this, and like Apple, there has to be a shift in thinking within IBM Lotus. They have to, at a minimum, drop the need to register to watch and make access easy ("easy" is probably the highest hurdle). If IBM Lotus cannot get a marketing/sales/technical lead from access, they probably won't do it.

I hope that I am wrong.

How about 'no'. How does 'no' work for you?

Fortunately my mouth was empty when I read Bill's comment.
In this case comparing Google to Lotus, Lotus look like a lame duck but IBM as a whole is a very successful company and its Websphere division is having one record quarter after the other (and no I do not know how this works).

Perhaps they are focused on super-premium buggy whip ultra?
