Do you want to be famous? Are you going to Lotusphere 2006?

Well, as my brother Dan one famously said, "The path to fame is to wear a big name tag".  Since you are unlikely to be willing to wear a sandwich board with your name on it the way he did for months, your next best bet is to have your photo in the world famous Lotusphere Sessions DB.  But wait, I hear you say, he can't possibly add all our photos.  The darn database would be huge.

Right you are, so instead, I am going to do something easier (and lighter).  I am going to add all the people in the Frappr Lotusphere 2006 group to the Sessions database.  I won't actually include their photos, but I'll point to them.  Here are a few examples:

Posted by: Thomas "Duffbert" Duff

Portland (OR)

Posted by: John Head

Aurora (IL)

Posted by: Elvis Presley

Leicester, England (United Kingdom)

OK, so maybe a bit of clean up will be needed before the database is finalized, as I doubt Elvis is really coming.  But you would be there too.  There are 255 people in the group so far, but you could be 256 (if you hurry), and your photo will show up along with these famous folks.

So I guess Lotusphere will officially be over when 'Elivs has left the building'?!

Well, it was supposed to be over when the fat lady sang, but she had a bit of car trouble, as you can see:
