The LS2005 Sessions db was a huge success

In all, 2477 direct downloads, and many more were handed around (many people reported "getting it from a friend") or viewed through Proposion's SmartPhone or WAP phone interface, and more through Kisswork's iPod interface.  All in all, it seemed well received, and people liked the layers pseudo-view, which was an experiment this year.  Also, many people at Lotusphere made a point of telling me how useful the views were in planning which sessions to attend, and how much they liked having people listed, such as the bloggers.

There are some things I want to change for next year, but it helps that each year we can build on the success and design of the year before.  Thanks to all who contributed ideas, or who simply downloaded and enjoyed it.  It feels good to do something that is useful to the community that has done so much for me.

Well, we sincerely thank you for putting it together! It definately made the whole thing a little less overwhelming. It was nice to finally meet you in person!

It was nice to meet you as well, although it sounds like I missed the best part by not hearing you sing at Kimonos. Maybe next year.
