It is a sad and pathetic story, really, one which is barely fit for a family-oriented blog, much less a corporate one. There are a bunch of unfortunate folks who would like to be at Lotusphere 2009, but they just can't. They really, really can't. Steve McDonagh started the whole sad litany
, but has been joined by the likes of Vaughan Rivett
and Ben Poole
and others. So, in a fit of sympathy, I offered to throw them a bone, as it were, and list them in the Lotusphere Sessions db as Non-Attenders, but the name just didn't quite fit the truly pathetic nature of the group. Then I happened to notice Steve's side bar:
... and it struck me what to call them. I plan to add Steve and others to the sessions db tonight as "Missing GONADs". It just seems right. Of course, if you would like to be in Steve's auspicious company, please respond here and let me know that you would also like to be listed under "Missing GONADs" in the Sessions db, proudly and for all to see.
Still, there is one question that remains unanswered: Why aren't they going to be at Lotusphere? Do they not have the time? Do they not have the money? Or, perchance, do they just not have the balls?
