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

Another year, another Lotusphere sessions db!  This is our fifth annual sessions db made available in Journal format that is suitable for synching with your PDA, or for just general browsing.  Actually, there is much more functionality for general browsing, fun and scheduling this year!  The database is available at LS2005_SessionsDB (which people started trying to get back in September since the name is similar to last year.  Sorry, I can't work magic, folks).  Ed Brill has clued me in that IBM is not planning on releasing their own database, so I figured I'd better do it again.  Ed even said that a link to the database may appear on the official Lotusphere page, as it did very late last year.

This database is free for you to use either as is or with modifications.  If you make interesting changes, or build another tool around it such as a web services or .NET interface or whatever, let me know and I'll provide a link (or just update my db if you like) on the webpage.  Feel free to point anyone to this post or to the page directly.

By the way, I am even more pumped (excited) about Lotusphere this year than last.  Do you know why?  It is because I don't have a session this year.  I just got plain tired and didn't submit any abstracts at all.  

Still, there are lots of other must-see sessions (partly why I needed this db for planning), and lots to learn.  I really hope to get to meet more of you, but you may have to work a bit harder to find me.  Drop me a line if you will be at Lotusphere and want to meet up and chat, or even talk about where Lotus, IBM and the rest of the world might be going.  I'm always ready to offer an opinion, and if you join me for a milkshake at Beach and Cream, I just mighty listen to your opinion as well.
