An update on upcoming events and travel....
Tomorrow, I'll be in Denver for the CoLUG (Colorado Notes User Group) meeting. Actually, there's a very cool IBM Lotus Open Labs thing going on all day, and I'm just tagging in at the end. Details on LotusUserGroup.org or CoLUG's site.
Next week, the big deal is the Lotus Advisor Summit, August 27-31 in Phoenix. I won't be there, but who needs me when you've got 20 high-quality speakers converging in the desert. See Andrew Pollack's blog for details.
Collaboration University is the big event in September, both in Kansas City and London. Check it out for deep technical information on Lotus Sametime and Lotus Quickplace, including an early look at Quickplace 8.
I will be travelling down under in mid-September (10 to 19 September), visiting Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, and Melbourne, Australia as well as Wellington and Auckland, New Zealand. The local user groups, where they exist or are restarting, already have events scheduled for this trip. I believe there's a public event in almost every city. So if you are in ANZ and are looking for info on local events next month, let me know. I'm still debating as to whether my mid-trip weekend is in Melbourne or Wellington... those seem to be my only realistic options based on flight schedules (much as I'd love to visit New Zealand's south island, at least to visit Michael Sampson. Will have to be another time...).
I've also signed up to speak at Admin 2006 Europe, 29 November to 1 December in Wien, Österreich (Vienna, Austria). I love Vienna, and this will be the first time I'm there for work. I've already been on the metro, though...
There are a couple of other October visits to Europe being worked on, so if I end up availablogging, you'll know why.
Oh and did I mention Lotusphere 2007?
