Right after the terrific week of prioritization exercises in Boston with the GCPC (Global Customer Partnership Council), I flew to Miami for the Lotus Advisor Summit/conference. The first day (Last Monday) was challenging weather-wise-- we had torrential downpour and gale force winds. I am admittedly a Hurricane weenie, and when I looked out my hotel room window, I was ready to evacuate!
The locals assured me that it was nothing. So I donned my fancy black "presentation garb" and then zipped my LL Bean waterproof slicker over top of it for the 10 minute walk to the conference center.
Needless to say, by the time I arrived I was soaked-- partly from the rain, and partly from the inside out because it was 90 Farenheit and that slicker had me sweating up a storm.... (no less smelly than when I had to deliver a talk in London without havnig bathed for 2 days due to a water main break and no water in the hotel... but that's another story...)
The conference went well, and I proceeded to Black River NY for my father and step-mother's 25th wedding anniversary. They renewed their vows in church and then we had a wonderful dinner. For the first time ever, all 18 of their grandchildren were present, and we took some great pictures.
Now that the long weekend is over, I'll return to work and begin working through designs for the list of prioritized features. I'm really looking forward to spending some time on design, since the last month has been more focused on promoting Notes 8 than designing Notes 8.5.
