Civility in critiquing the ideas of others is no vice. Rudeness in defending your own ideas is no virtue.

OK, the question has been asked (more than once.  OK, OK, several times).  Well, without going into a lot of details, I decided life in the week before Lotusphere was just a bit too simple and quiet, so... I bought a house.  Well, of course I didn't actually "buy" the house, but my wife and I saw it and saw it again, and put in an offer, and had the offer accepted, and that was all just the first day.  It has been twelve years so I went through this house buying thing, so I forgot the flurries of papers to sign just to set the whole thing up.  The long and short of it is, we got the house we wanted, but you all didn't quite get the finished database you wanted.  I am putting out the last version tonight or tomorrow morning, and version 2 had all the sessions except Gurupalooza and the opening sessions, but some of the cool "Google maps in the Notes client" type functionality I will have to show you at our pedestal #604, since I couldn't get it out there.

Oh yes.  My marketing director ("Quick! Switch hats, Ben") reminds me that perhaps I could emphasize that just a bit more, so.

Our pedestal is #604.  Come see CoexEditCoexLinks and the amazing Midas Rich Text LSX!

Ahem.  Anyway, so you have my apologies for the tardiness of the last version.  I had a house to buy.

But if you want to stop by and see how the sessions db was actually built, and how we created those slick graphical calendars and ripped data wholesale retrieved publicly accessible data off the Lotus website, you can stop by our pedestal on the showcase floor, or you can come to my ISV Theater presentation on The Making of the Sessions Database on Thursday morning at 9am in Europe 5.  Try not to disturb the crickets, as I imagine they will be the only ones up after the festivities at Sea World Wednesday night.  Anyway, if those options don't work, you can always accost me after the Business Development Day opening session or the General Opening Session, where if you watch really, really carefully, you might see them flash our new logo because we were finalists for the Best Tool/Utility Lotus Award.  ("Oh shoot!  I didn't mean to say that.  Do I have to?  C'mon, they don't want to hear this. OK, OK")

Genii Software's CoexEdit was a finalist for the 2006 Lotus Award for Best Tool/Utility!

Sigh.  Sorry about that.  You know marketing people.  Anyway, I look forward to seeing everybody as you dribble in over the next day or so.
