PermaLink A Lotusphere Diary, 2012 - Day 201/17/2012 04:22 AM
Where do your friends take you?

Even after all these years, and in spite of how pessimistic I've gotten about the venue we all share, I am constantly reminded of how good we as Sphereians are to each other.

I've had a theory for a long time that in any human situation, you never hear a whole story from one person. What's more, you never hear it, even from many people, all at one time. You must be patient; it's a big puzzle you must assemble from a lot of pieces you collect over time and from many different sources.

For my chosen family, this is the place, and these have been the times.

I learned many things today and tonight.

I learned that IBM can, should they so choose, blow the doors off Lotusphere with what by anyone's report was one of the best Opening General Sessions of all time. I've seen lots of them, some dreadful, where you wonder how long you can wait before you pee under your seat, and some dramatic and special.

IBM did a good thing Monday morning.

I am proud.

You made good friends of mine cry. That's not easy and it's not to be trifled with.

IBM also didn't cut anyone's legs off. We will all work tomorrow (or, maybe, next week when we're all at home and we've taken off the gold beads and the bullethole stickers).

Do I think IBM will rethink their slash-jobs-kick-the-stock-price-up strategy that has earned them scorn from thousands of former employees but made them a Wall Street darling? Not really. Eventually, they have to.

For now, at least the knowledge that they're willing to invest in technology that actually works gives me some comfort. A rethink of their marketing efforts into SMB and into educational and government accounts would give me more comfort.

But yes, there will be a Lotusphere 2013. I trust that. I have to. Maybe more than anyone.

No more big words tonight, Lotusphere. I have no voice left.

Mary, Abigail, Rob, Andrew, Devin, Liz, all the Susans, the Bills, Daniel, Giuseppe, the Elsmores, Donna, Stephanie, Barbara, all the Loti and whoever played Pluto earlier... be well. We'll see each other tomorrow.

Love,

Turtle
