Even if you're not going to LS, don't miss seeing the Opening General Session

By Andrew Pollack on 01/16/2008 at 11:40 AM EST

This year you're going to see the payoff for all that work and all the overhead associated with running Notes 8 in Eclipse. Usually, either live or shortly after, there is a way to view the Lotusphere Opening General Session. Do not miss this year's OGS. The Notes 8.0 client has a huge potential for new stuff, but you're not seeing too much use of it just yet. I liken it to having a brand new high end sports car that came with a governor set to 55 miles per hour.

This year you'll get to see the payoff showing through. I think those who's schedule has them seeing the OGS second and the Salon first instead, will know when some of the Demo's of near term features are being done. The crowd noise will come through the walls and across the corridors like the 9pm fireworks at EPCOT.

Well, for those attended the LotusSalon session first, the crowd noise will
also have travel down the escalators, across the bridge, and into Swan
ballroom. I'll keep my ears tuned :-)

IBM has made a deal under which the Notes & Domino software and intellectual property is now being developed and maintained by HCL America. HCL America is part of the very large "HCL Technologies" company that has grown from its roots in India to become an 8 Billion Dollar company with a global presence in the IT Industry. You could be excused for initially believing, as many people do when they hear this, that "they've outsourced the code to India where they'll milk it ......

If your company has ditched Notes and Domino, I feel sorry for you. For companies that do use Notes/Domino this is a game changer and Apple should be paying attention. Here's why: There are hundreds of little Notes client applications you'd never spend the time and money to build and deploy for your internal user base on IOS that we use Notes for all the time (those of us still using it). Now, those are suddenly ALL available on the iPad. ......
