It's been a little while coming but I'm now at the point where I can finally post some updates on Lotusphere 2008, in particular about the amazing plans for Lotus Connections 2.0.
As a downpayment, I wanted to draw your attention to a brief video of part of the "Innovation Idol" from the Social Computing Keynote. This was a highly entertaining piece of modern performance art (not a PowerPoint chart in sight!) and a great way to get across some very valid points about how organizations should be reviewing their options for chosing a Social Computing platform, which will be the next mission-critical business IT infrastructure choice.
First up there was Zena (I think) with her "super cool widget from an open source, social network for pet dating" and her "facial expresion analysis", which had one or two technical issues, then there was a super, slick guy with FlarePoint, who managed to dim the lights, and finally Suzanne Minassian (the new e-Goddess) who gave a superb recap of her Opening General Session performance with a great demo of the very interesting upcoming features of Lotus Connections 2.0. Definitely 11/10!
I've got a few more postings planned around the people and plans in the Lotus Connections Community, so more soon.
