It's early, it's incomplete, but it's the 8th Annual Lotusphere Sessions DB

The sessions may not be quite all there (one or two seem to be badly formed) and the people and companies are last year's, and repeats may not be there yet...
Nonetheless, for those who just can't wait another second, the early Pre-Version 0.1 of the Lotusphere Sessions DB is here and ready for you to download. Given the errors on our site, people have been trying for the past few weeks at the inevitable page anyway, so I might as well make them happy... Lotusphere 2008 Sessions DB Pre-Version 0.1
I will update with exhibitors, times and rooms, etc. when that information is available. Cheers!
And yes, this means the data is live on the Lotusphere website. No sneaky stuff for me, no sirree! (And yes, I beat Ed again)

I was gonna call foul for you having the times of the sessions, then I realize they're in the documents but not the view. :-\ That's not very useful. At least we have your super awesome session DB that puts it all together.

I try very hard not to cheat, because I don't want to get a bunch of angry IBM lawyers after me. You would think IBM would be sending me information rather than sending me on wild goose chases to try and extract the data, but...

Thanks again Ben!
However, I'm getting 'object variable not set' errors on both my 8.0 (PC) and 7.02 (Mac) clients when I attempt to add sessions to my calendar.

It turns out I forgot a step, which is to select all sessions and run the 'Set real Date Time fields' agent. There is some other small fix that somebody told me related to this, but I haveforgotten it. Anyway, you can try that yourself, but I should have a new version soon. I just wish IBM would list the repeats they know. They have already told some speakers that they have repeats, but nothing is listed about them yet.

It is just those two sessions. Note that the day and everything are messed up. I am working on it.
