I'd like to extend my congratulations to the organizers of the 2007 Irish Lotus User Group conference. As a presenter and attendee, from my perspective, it went flawlessly.
Because it co-incided with the release of Beta 3, it was especially good for me to get immediate feedback from lots and lots of people.
I was chatting with one of the presenters from RIM (his talk was about Notes apps on a Blackberry, of course). This was his first Lotus event. He's spent most of his time traveling around Europe doing events with other companies. He said he was amazed at ILUG. He could not believe the energy, the enthusiasm, and the overall passion that this community has. None of the other events he's worked at has had this kind of community feeling.
This IS a terrific community, made even stronger by the dedication and hard working of people like Eileen Fitzgerald, Paul Mooney, Kitty Elsmore, Warren Elsmore, Bill Buchan, and Tom Duff.
