I attended a session today by accident – because Jeff Eisen's “What's new in the Notes 8 and Beyond” was moved to another slot. What was at the location was Larry Bowden's “Been There, Done That……Unlocking Business Benefits of Portals and Collaboration“. I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed hearing the problems and answers to Larry's questions. He asked pretty direct questions and the responses seemed pretty realistic as they all did not completely praise IBM. When it started I thought it was going to be a “let's pat IBM on the back” type of session. One funny moment was when one of the panelists referred to IBM as Microsoft.
