Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

I had somebody recently ask to have his e-mail address removed after he realized it was displayed on our site.  While it was actually displayed through JavaScript and would have been very hard to retrieve with a spider or whatever it is one uses to retrieve such things, I decided that there was no particular reason why I display that information, except that that is what the template did.  So, no more e-mail addresses displayed.  Skip them entirely if you feel like it, since they have always been optional, but let there be no worries that w are contributing to the spam onslaught.

Update Feb. 16: Lotus has announced that they will have many of the Lotusphere session PDFs available at, so when I get this database up, I will only include links to sessions which are included there, as well as some other sessions and links to updated sessions.  See below for the current list of updated presentations.

OK, it is a very ambitious title, but I am collecting any of the Lotusphere session slides and samples links I can.  For those who used or know about the Lotusphere 2004 Sessions DB, I know of a friend with all the slides who is putting them together with that database.  He said he would post it on his website, and as soon as he does (tomorrow, I hope), I'll let you know here.  There are a number of the IBM presentations in the Sandbox. In addition, a number of Business Partners and others have updated versions and some examples on their own sites.  Here is a short list (please respond with any additional which you know about):

Lotus demonstrated at Lotusphere how to use LotusScript to create web services and showed native Notes running inside the new rich client, people actually noticed that the half time show for the Superbowl was in poor taste, Andrew Pollack rewrote his NCT Search in Java, and my teenage daughter voluntarily packed her own carrots in her lunch.  What is the world coming to?
