Day one of the IBM Premium Support Seminar (and other miscellaneous information)

Today was day one of the annual gathering of IBM Premium Support Customers in Boston.  The event brings together customers, their premium support managers, and members of the support and field service organizations.  In many ways this is a mini Lotusphere of sorts (a lot smaller, and significantly less walking).  The seminar kicked off with a keynote address delivered by Bob Picciano, this was my first opportunity to hear him speak since he took over the General Manager role from Mike Rhodin.  In speaking with Bob after the address I discovered he was a Yankee fan, real shame I didn’t have a Met hat on me, another time I will have to continue this fine tradition. Today was filled with sessions, and a lively “Ask the Developers” session to end the day.  This evening before dinner I had the opportunity to see some early designs of potential features in Quickr and Connections in future releases and there is some pretty good stuff on the drawing board. Since I don’t feel like another post, couple of miscellaneous points thrown in here. Tomorrow is the day for Notes 8.0.2, it  should be available for download on Passport in a few hours. Finally a new experience this evening, I am staying at the Westin Copley Place, this evening when I stopped in my room before heading out to dinner the phone in my room was blinking.  Having  no idea who could have possibly called my room I checked the voice mail to find that the hotel is now leaving recorded advertisements for restaurants on voicemail.  Please stop this, telemarketers are bad enough at home, do I need to register my hotel room on the Do Not Call list?
