Starting to populate session resource materials in Sessions db

Update: I guess people like this.  There have been 778 separate replications  in the past two days.

As I suggested earlier, I have started to populate the sessions db with links to session resources.  If you replicate the latest version from, you will see in the By  Session ID view that there are three possible icons.  The color and black and white Acrobat symbols mean that a link is available from Lotusphere on-line to the color or black and white PDF of the slides of the presentation as handed in before Lotusphere.  The blue arrow means there is a link to the updated presentation, and possibly sample dbs and more, from the blog or website of one of the speakers.  So far, I have presentation links from Alan Bell, Alan Lepofsky,  Andrew Pollack, Ben Langhinrichs (me), Bill Buchan, Chris Blatnick, Declan Lynch, Ed Brill, Gabriella Davis, Henry Newberry, Jens-B. Augustiny, John Head, John Vaughan, Julian Robichaux, Nathan Freeman, Rob Wunderlich, Scott Good, Sean Burgess and Steve Castledine, but as people send links, I am adding them and replicating.  If you know of a public link to any speaker's page, please post it here or e-mail me and I'll get it updated.

How can I replicate the database?

Hi Ben,

Is it possible to create zip files per track.

I don't think the LotuSphere organisation is going to help us with downloading all presentations at once.

What I've figured out...

View with B&W attachments:

View with Color attachments:

Example color attachment:$FILE/AD101.pdf

Document ID's and filenames:

I think you would help a lot of LotuSphereans!

Ferdinand - It would be easy to do, but it would violate copyright and our agreement with IBM. This has been an issue before, so unfortunately, the best I can do is provide links.

Of course, anybody who wants to create their own set of downloaded files who has access to the site is welcome to do so, but not for distribution to anybody who did not buy a Lotusphere pass. Only IBM can choose to open the presentations to more people, and even they might run afoul of outside speakers who don't want their presentations shared. - Ben

If we already have all the PDFs, what would be the best way to attach them into the Sessions dB so that a replication with Turtle Partnership would not affect them?
