Finally had a chance to review my Lotusphere evaluation verbatims yesterday.  I didn't do the actual math, but for both sessions, it looks like about 80% excellent and 15% good ratings on both content and speakers.  Considering that these sessions are necessarily provocative, I don't ever expect to score 100% excellent.  So, this is good.  I do appreciate the feedback.

I always enjoy reading the written comments on the evaluations.  There's not a ton of them, but there are some funny comments and some good ones (and a few that the ego appreciates).
 
The Boss Loves Microsoft: Where does that leave Lotus?

  • "Great use of up-to-date sources and third-party quotes"
  • "Best session I've attended so far"
  • "Great knowledge, passion, humour"
  • "The highlight of Lotusphere"
This one puzzles me, though: "Stop bagging the competition.  Its not a good business practise."  I think the abstract for the session makes it clear that it is going to be a discussion of the competitive landscape, right?

How to 'sell' Notes/Domino inside your organization
  • "Speakers gave more ammo to convince upper mgmt to take another look @ Notes.  Excellent info."
  • "I am now 'armed' to for selling LN 7.0"
  • "Both Ed & Libby are seasoned pros -- they were born to do sessions like this!"
  • "This information should be even more readily available to the community -- such is its importance"
Interestingly, the PDFs of both sessions are posted, but there have been very few comments posted about them.  About 800 downloads of "How to 'sell' Notes/Domino"...not a word.  And with somewhere around 5000 downloads of "The Boss loves Microsoft...", the electronic silence was somewhat surprising.  Then again, a number of those downloads came from *.microsoft.com IP addresses :)
