First rough LS 2012 Sessions db available

Twelfth Annual Lotusphere Sessions Planning DB

For those who can't do anything but dream of Orlando in January...

Many people have deduced the super secret URL.  Unlike last year, where the URL was LS2011_SessionsDB or for every year back to 2001 when it was LS2001_SessionsDB (and so forth through the intervening years), this year the super secret URL is... wait for it...


Anyway, Version 0.2 (meaning oh-my-god-are-there-ever-gaps) is ready for you to download.  I'd strongly encourage you to replicate with Tranquility (using the handy view action if you like) frequently over the next few weeks.  I should point out that frequently does not mean every fifteen minutes.  It means once a day or so.  Around January 10, you can move to every fifteen minutes if you have ADD, ADHD or ADOS (attention deficit ohh shiny).

Some may notice odd design elements and such. The whole database is undergoing a facelift, but only bits are in the public database. They'll all show up soon. Be kind, I don't get paid for this stuff.

Thanks, guys. I'd say it is a work of love, but it is a little more like the weirdly obsessive way you pick at a scab, knowing it will hurt, but finding yourself unable to resist the urge. My little gift to the community.

Thanks, Ben. It's such a pain to try and plan your LS schedule without this.

Hi Ben - Thanks for the effort as always.

I do see a bunch of errors in the database. Why don't I just send you the current matrix, at least as I have it. For example, my session is listed on Sunday and no speaker; I'm on monday and it's me :-)

Will send email in moments.

Thanks --Ed

Thanks, Ed. I just got it and will update the database over the next day or so.
