LS speakers, bloggers, etc. - Lend me your ears

But please don't go all Van Gogh on me.  If you are a speaker or blogger or otherwise have, or want to have, yourself listed in the Lotusphere 2009 Sessions DB, this is a request for you.

One of the new features being added to the Lotusphere Sessions DB to complement the Q&A feature added last year is the auto-notification of a speaker or other named person when a question or comment is made on one of your sessions, or on your person or pedestal document, which will also be allowed.  This is an opt-in procedure, but I'd like to start with a core group who will accept auto-notification.  Your e-mail address will not be included in the database, so you don't have to worry about that.

If you would like to be included, please reply by mail to  
or comment on this post.  If you want me to use an e-mail address other than one I would instantly know (you know who you are), please send me the e-mail address I should use via e-mail (see above).

Please note that questions may start at any time, as the Q&A feature will be included in the Sessions db even before times are scheduled.  Therefore, I'd like to get people signed up as soon as possible.

John - To be clear, I didn't spell it wrong, but IBM crtainly did. You might want to check with them to be sure it is corrected before they prnt it in session guides and such. In any case, I have corrected it in the sessions db.
