Lot's of highlights from Day -1, and Day 0 at Lotusphere 2009

By Andrew Pollack on 01/18/2009 at 07:30 PM EST

The shirts are done (for me). The Fulton's dinner is done. The Jumpstart Security sessions are done (4 hours of talking) are done. Now I can have some fun!

If you're one of the six people who read my blog, come up and tell me so during the week. Don't be shy, I love to meet the people who read my rants.

Bob Picciano - the new man running the show for Lotus - is poised to do some fantastic work. I'll blog more later because some of it should wait until after the OGS. For now, let me say that he's a Notes guy, he's a brilliant individual, and he's a nice guy all around. I had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with him at the Fulton's dinner and came away extremely impressed. He shared with me some personal insights into software development and all I can say is that I agree with him completely. Its always impressive to meet these top IBM business line people who are also extremely skilled technical people. Talking with Bob Picciano about writing software is like getting beat at chess by Michael Jordan. He's better at it than you, and that's not even his real game.

The Jumpstarts that Gab and I did wen't really well. We didn't run too long (though it was quite a pitched battle to avoid it) and we managed to pretty nearly fill the room both times. No one was injured during the session.

I'm off to the party for some food, see ya!

Hi Andrew, thanks for info. I'm looking forward to what Bob has to say. I just
hope he has a marketing plan.

Hiya Andrew, cannot come up to you, but I do read your rant!

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

Certainly it should have been addressed in the Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan administrations -- all of which were well aware of the implications of a pandemic. I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything. Not just killing people and breaking things, but ......

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
