A web alert caught this blog entry...

IAMLUG was hosted in my hometown, St Louis MO. I was excited to go to this event because I have never been to a Lotusphere and there were some big Lotus names coming. For instance; Chris Miller, Paul Mooney, Gabriella Davis, Mary Beth Raven, Ed Brill, etc... I have never seen any of these people speak before except Chris Miller. I got to see them all speak except for Ed Brill.... I had to skip it because my Dad was in town for 1 night. ...

So I posted this on Twitter.
dheinle Feeling that I missed a lot of stuff from @edbrillsession #iamlug
To which Ed replied
edbrill@dheinle I will post my presentation on slideshare in a day or two. If you need me to come back to StL, let me know.

This just blows me away, that Ed responded to me and then offered to come back t o St Louis if needed.

What is even more amazing, I work for a small company. Only 200 seats of Lotus Notes and Domino. No Quickr, No Connections, nothing. Just a basic small Notes shop and he took the time to reply. And you know I believe that Ed would come back to St Louis if needed. He just seems to be that kind of guy.

Lotus Knows. Lotus Knows how to make the little guy happy.
This kind of simple interaction makes the time investment in social networking totally worth it.  Social networking may often be a way to introduce yourself to new people or strengthen existing connections.  The human element that the more you know someone, the more information you have as to whether or not that person is someone you want to do business with, is clearly a net-benefit of online communities and tools like Twitter.
