My Favorite....By Andrew Pollack on 10/01/2010 at 09:35 PM EDT
My favorite is absolutely the 2004 "CULT SHIRT ON HUMAN". It was a picture of
an old school Notes database icon, and clearly made the case for us Tree
huggers. That was the year IBM over pushed Workplace so hard, that almost the
only native Notes sessions were in the BP track. The big rooms were set up for
Workplace and were mostly empty but the Notes client and Domino Server sessions
-- relegated to the Swan, were overflowed two and three times. To me, the
shirt was an unintentional Frack-Off to the Workplace crowd and fit the mood of
the conference perfectly.

That one is my favourite too. I never got the first few ones, would loved to
have the Domino Survivor and the Fellowship ones...
The "I AM" one is also a favourite.

I hope to be there (although it isn't looking good).

I have a cute story about "CULT SHIRT ON HUMAN" -- I was in a restaurant
somewhere in Orlando one of the days after the conference and the waitress
looked at the shirt and said "CULT SHIRT ON HUMAN? I don't get it." Without
batting an eyelash I said "That's because you aren't part of the Cult!" After
that Lotusphere (with its abundance of Workplace sessions), it just seemed

If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
