I Think the Genii Software Lotusphere Sessions Database Needs a New Name

I have used the Genii Software Lotusphere Sessions DB to plan every Lotusphere I have ever attended (less than the 11 years Ben has provided the database), this year being no different.  Ben has been very vocal this year trying to gather and add information to the database, take a look Twitter ID’s, Location Services, Tweet Buttons, Books, Podcasts, you name it.  For a full walk through check out Chris Millers Episode 91 -Lotusphere Sessions DB walkthrough.

This got me thinking, the name is all wrong, sure it started as a Lotusphere Sessions Database, but with all the work Ben has put into it, it is so much more now.  It is a tremendous community resource, right in your notes client.  Whatever you are looking for it’s there.  Need a book, podcast, a training course, does a certain person use Twitter? It’s all in there.

Regardless of whether or not you are attending Lotusphere, this database should be on your workspace, and if you are attending Lotusphere, don’t throw it out when you get home, the sessions might be over, but the rest of the information will provide value throughout the year.

Thanks Ben, but how about a new name, one that better reflects the contents of the database? Lotus Community Resource Database? Lotusphere Sessions and Community Resource Database?

What do you think? Have any suggestions of your own?
