Eric's Goals Bracelet for 2008Last December, I received this engraved Road ID goals bracelet. In 2008, I made great progress on items 1-3. That leaves only 'Buy a Mac' and 'Visit New Zealand.' Perhaps this will be the year for those two.

For now, I've just returned from a very successful Lotusphere 2009, where David Allen and I gave a presentation. I now have 1000 accumulated emails to process (I've already deleted the easy & obvious stuff), several hundred new business cards & leads to deal with, and a list of Lotusphere 2009 blog topics to edit and post.

This evening, eProductivity Principal Architect Ian Armstrong and I were presented with a plaque for our honorable mention at the Teamstudio Spotlight Awards reception at Lotusphere 2009.

This evening, David Allen and I presented our best practices session at Lotusphere. It was a lot of fun to copresent with David as our presentation styles are so different. It reminded me of the "I'm a Mac and I'm a PC" ads. (Can you guess who would be the PC?)

I’m twittering from Lotusphere 2009

Saturday, January 17th, 2009
We'll see how this works out as a tool for real-time micro-blogging from Lotusphere.

My Twitter ID is EricMack

I've seen the comments from bloggers who are unable to attend this year's Lotusphere conference. I know what it is like to miss out on Lotusphere; it's an amazing event full of opportunities to meet and make friends, learn, and take advantage of the many offers from the vendors in the Product Showcase. I've not been able to attend Lotusphere for the past several years and I am looking forward to this year's event.

For anyone that may be interested, I've decided to extend our eProductivity Lotusphere promotional pricing to everyone -- not just those who can visit us in the Product Showcase. Details here.

Anyway, after a long day of travel, I've arrived at the Dolphin hotel and I expect to start blogging about the conference, soon.
I recently received the assigned reading list for my next graduate course in Knowledge Management. I went ahead and ordered two of the books in advance, thinking I might bring them on the plane with me.

Um. I don't think so...

Two knowledge management books I won't be carrying on my next plane trip...

I think my studies will just have to wait until after Lotusphere.
