Lotusphere Recap: Thursday – Questions and Answers, Answers and Questions

Thursday, the final day of Lotusphere, always a good one.  Another early start attending the 7 AM BOF Deploying Lotus Connections facilitated by Miguel Estrada and Mac Guidera.  Once again a nice sized crowd especially for 7 AM on Thursday, and more good conversation.

I spent a little more time in the User Experience Lab, and then it was off to Gurupalooza, Susan Bulloch did a great job moderating the session, lots of good questions from the audience.  Gurupalooza is always a good time, with lots of good information shared in a fun setting.


Following Gurupalooza was the inaugural Ask the Product Managers session, hosted by Ed Brill.  Despite any of the pre-Lotusphere chatter about this session it went really well, in fact so well Ed promised it would be back next year.

90% happy with Ask the Product Managers. Thanks for making it successful! We’ll do it again at LS12! #ls11Thu Feb 03 17:37:27 via Twitter for BlackBerry®

I wasn’t planning on live blogging Ask the Product Managers, but after a last minute request a hastily assembled crew of Sean Burgess, John Head, Sharon Bellamy, Stuart McIntyre and I managed to capture most of the Q&A as well as some photos, you can see the live blog post here.

After a morning of Questions and Answers the closing session featured Watson, in a game of Jeopardy (for those not familiar in Jeopardy your are given the answers and have to come up with the Question. I really enjoyed the closing and I will probably tune in to Jeopardy next week when Watson plays for real against the all time Jeopardy champions.  I posted some video from the closing session here.

When the closing session ends, it always seems like the week flew by in a blink, I went up on stage for the traditional “bloggers photo”, it’s always amazing to see how fast they start breaking the room and the big stage down, and with in a few hours it is hard to even find a sign anywhere in the hotel that Lotusphere was there.

Fortunately the fun wasn’t over yet, there was still the Blogger Open, and one more night with friends before heading home very early Friday morning, a full recap of the Blogger Open will  be posted soon.
