Well...it's almost time for our annual pilgrimage to Orlando, and like most of you that are going, I can't wait! For those of you that can't make it, I've been in your position as well...totally bummed about it...and all I can say is that at least this year, more than ever before, you'll get to live viscerally through the many social networking mechanisms that people in the community will be taking advantage of. I know that's not nearly as good as being there, so we'll raise one (or two or...) in your honor.
I still have a lot of planning to do, but there are a few places that I absolutely know I'll be come next week, else my co-presenters will be a little bit annoyed. ;-) If you'd like to catch one of my sessions, make your way over to:
1:00 - 2:00 BP108 - Getting to Wow...Interface First Design for IBM Lotus Notes Developers (co-presented with Tom Duff) - SW 7-10
8:30 - 9:30 AD212 - 1o Web 2.0 User Interface Design Patterns for IBM Lotus Notes and XPages (Co-presented with Nathan Freeman) - SW 5-6
10:00 - 11:00 BP108 - Getting to Wow...Interface First Design for IBM Lotus Notes Developers (co-presented with Tom Duff) - SW 5-6

As far as those social networking things go, I'll be trying to play along as well, so if you want to follow me, you can find me on:
I'm looking forward to really using the last two after finally getting a phone that can take advantage of them.
I hope to see you there! Feel free to stop me and say hi if you see me.
