Well, it's official. IBM ConnectedED does not feel my contribution is worth the session time.

By Andrew Pollack on 12/01/2014 at 05:34 PM EST

I know I'm in good company, and I don't deserve a session slot any more than anyone else -- but I'd be lying if I didn't admit to being a bit frustrated and disappointed.

For now, I'll hold my tongue about the decision process,
wish the best of luck to those who will be speaking,
hope the people attending find the content helpful,
and say that if you want the content I've been delivering
you'll have to come to some of the user groups or to Rudi's
"Admin / Developer Camp" conferences.

There's always other outlets for your content if interested. I hear there's a
video podcast out there. :)

If I start commenting specifically about the who, what, and why on this I'll
just get carried away and say things I shouldn't.
So see you @ Rudi's?By Stephan H. Wissel on 12/01/2014 at 09:49 PM EST
I presented at Developer Camp in 2014, good fun. Looking to go back there

Yeah. I've done his Admincamp in the fall for many years, but these days I do
as much or more application development so I believe I'm slated to do
Developercamp in the spring this year.

Rudi still runs his conference -- the only other really successful paid
conference left, as far as I know -- by starting with a determination on what
the best content would be and working from there. It's a shame when a show is
charging a large admission fee and then tailors the content to be based on what
they want you to see, and the for the rest on how they can get it done on the
cheap. Rudi has never worked that way.

Are you going anyway?

I'm most likely going to be there on Saturday and Sunday, but at present I
don't plan on staying longer. That could change in either direction.

Here are some sensible rules for web site advertisingAn increasing number of websites are now detecting when users have ad-blocking enabled, and refuse to show content unless you "whitelist" their site (disable your ad-blocking for them). I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. 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 ......
