IBM Lotusphere Comes to You 2008

Warning, this is a bit of a gripe post!ls08-443x120.jpg

Why is it that the dates for Lotus events in Spain always seem to be the last to appear!? Spain isn’t even on the list for the Lotusphere Comes to You events, which I hope that is just temporary!

It could go quite some way to explain why the Lotus community here in Spain has struggled for so long. I just hope that all the effort of late from those behind Spanish Lotus User Group – SLUG.es, are matched by IBM Lotus.

SLUG it is (for now at least!)

The Spanish Lotus User Group initiative I mentioned seems to be progressing nicely, despite my personal lack of affection for the name!

It is important to point out that the name isn’t intended to exclude, but rather the idea is to keep this as open as possible, referring to all Spanish-speakers rather than the country.

Importantly, Josep seems to be making progress in gathering ideas for the agenda, support from IBM, etc. There is even talk of using Sametime for those unable to travel! We’ll have to see how things pan out.

For now, I’d like to add my call to that of Josep, we’d love to hear from you if you:

  • have some advice
  • would like to offer some help
  • have discovered a desire to present on a Lotus-related topic in Spain
  • or simply would like to attend!

I’ll keep you posted as things develop.
