LCTY in Raleigh Yesterday

I was able to make it to the Lotusphere Comes To You event hosted by Lotus 911 yesterday in Raleigh, NC. I was able to meet Nathan and Tim. During the morning session, there was a meeting/revival being held by American Baptist churches. It's a historically black denomination, so there was some soul filled (and filling) gospel music going on next door during the morning sessions. Good stuff!

The Lotus information was really good as well. I'm guessing there were about 40-50 people there in the morning session. Nathan asked how many of them had downloaded the Notes 8 client and maybe a dozen raised their hands! This was great - especially compared to the ONE person he said raised a hand at the Hartford event earlier in the week. As an admin, there is some great stuff coming in Domino 8 and Domino "Next". In Domino "Next", you can get rid of Notes ID files if you wish and potentially even authenticate against AD or LDAP.

I had to straighten Nathan out once after a session. There were a couple of ladies who were not Notes customers and Nathan confused them by referring to a Notes "Application" as a "Database"! What were you thinking?!? :)

Quickr integration is going to be excellent - check out this video.
