As you have heard, Lotus guru, strategist, blogger, favorite Canadian and friend Alan Lepofsky has left IBM after 14 years with Lotus. Although he is not going far away (nobody is far away in this socially-networked world!) We simply can't let him slip out the door without a proper celebration.
Since the commute to Orlando for karaoke and sake at Kimonos would be a bit rough, and insurance wouldn't cover an ultimate frisbee tournament, we have decided to celebrate in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.
Please join us on Wednesday July 23rd atFlat Top Johnny's in Kendall Square (walking distance from the Cambridge office) to celebrate Alan's time at IBM and his new adventure. The party starts at 5pm, so feel free to drop by whenever is best for you. Rumor has it Johnny's has Canadian beer on tap, so the fun will probably continue well into the night.
IBM-ers and non-IBM-ers alike are all invited HOWEVER, please post a reponse if you plan to come so that we can have an idea of how many people are planning to attend.
(For those IBMers who received an actual LOTUS NOTES calendar invitation, response to that, and not here, please.)
Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you there.
