Lotusphere 2011 Part 1 getting there getting set #LS11

Thursday 6 AM I find out that my 6:30 AM flight out of Newark is cancelled

Thursday 10 AM I get myself on a 6:45 AM flight out of La Guardia airport

Friday 3:45 AM awake and ready to travel

Friday 4:15 AM depart for airport

Friday 5:15 AM at LGA bags checked and through security (amazing that travel and security done in less then an hour even at that early hour)

Friday 5:30 AM chance meeting with a Lotus exec who was on my flight, interesting conversation about IBM/Lotus to kick off my Lotusphere week

Friday 6:45 AM on time departure

Friday 9:30 AM early arrival

Friday 11:00 AM arrive at Yacht club, 5 minutes of panic when they could not find my reservation, eventually they found it….. and the feeling bad they found me a room as close to the Dolphin as you could be ( if you are like me and prefer the Yacht Club)

Friday 12:00 PM Dolphin Rotunda is already full of Lotii ready for Lotusphere

Remainder of the day errands, and picking up supplies for the week

Saturday – lots of rest and sleep recovering from the hectic week before Lotusphere, and preparing for the week ahead

Saturday night ESPN, Kimonos, Dolphin Bar, catching up and saying hi to people, relatively early end to the night back in my room by 12:30 (pacing myself for the week)

An interesting start to my week, panicking over a cancelled flight, panicking over a missing hotel reservation both of which worked out well in the end, hopefully a good sign for the rest of the week.

Remember to check my Lotusphere Page for the live blog schedule starting with the OGS at 8 AM tomorrow (Monday).
