Sitting at the Altar of Brill

UPDATE: Congratulations to David Hafey from Michigan Catholic Conference on winning the $50 Gift Certificate to Border’s. It’s nice to know that they use Domino.

First off… I KNOW SOMETHING THAT YOU DON’T KNOW!!! (I’ve always wanted to say that!) Ed Brill mentioned some cool stuff coming, but I promised him that I wouldn’t blog about it, and I WON’T. All I can say is that I’m happy I’m still working with IBM/Lotus. Can’t wait…

I’m writing this from the West Michigan Lotus User Group Meeting and Lotus Notes/Domino 7 and Beyond event in Grand Rapids. It was a capacity crowd. There were actually more people there than who signed up, and everyone who signed up showed up. That’s a rarity for free seminars. I saw some familiar faces, and got to see Ed Brill present in a much smaller room than I would normally (at Lotusphere).
A few years ago, Gatoraid put out a commercial with a song that went something like, ‘Like Mike… I wanna be like Mike…’. Well, I’m singing a similiar tune, ‘Like Ed… I wanna be like Ed…’. His presentation was outstanding! He’s also a great guy! Like a boob, I forgot to bring my Creative Zen Micro, so I didn’t have anything that I could use to interview him. (Maybe someday in the future…) Thanks to Ed for the presentation, thanks to the user group for having me, and thanks to my employer for allowing me to come.

All I’ve got to say is that I’ve got to figure out a way to get to Lotusphere! I’m looking for a sponsor…Any volunteers?
