This is it. We’ve done all that we can do and now we get to reap the rewards of our hard work. Show time!
IBM Information on Demand starts this weekend. Many of us are flying to Las Vegas tomorrow already. The weekend will be filled with customer meetings, business partner sessions and the inevitable last minute details.
What can you expect? You’ll walk a lot, meet many people, maybe even eat too much. You’ll learn about many new products and technologies. You’ll be tired by the end of the week, but I hope you’ll end the conference saying that you had fun and that every minute was worth it!
If you want a running commentary on what’s happening at the conference, be sure to check out the Official IOD Blog and Twitter and Facebook. Several of us will be posting to these sites throughout the week.
Here’s a list of the blog entries I’ve published in the past month to support this IOD:
A few of my entries went straight to the Official Blog. Here are mine and a couple of my favourites:
Have fun, learn a lot... and stay safe!

I asked my wonderful friend Rebecca Bond to give me her
I had to make some REALLY difficult decisions. There are some EXCELLENT speakers and sessions this year.
These are the ones I finally decided to attend. I seriously hope that the ones I am going to miss will be presented at IOD so I can try to attend them then. IDUG has outdone themselves with this line up.
I may look at taking one of the classes on Monday. Just depends on how my writing projects are going and if they have any available spaces left when I make the determination.
I can't decide on which restaurant to sign up for on the Dine Around evening. Several good choices and I want to have dinner with everyone so I think I'll just have to put a blindfold on and throw darts at the sign up board....you might want to warn your readers to steer clear of the sign up board if they see a crazy lady in great shoes start to put on her blindfold.
