Lotusphere 2011 Day 5: Ask the Product Managers

View Comments

For those of you who are catching up, I've blogged about my recaps from Days 1-4, so you may want to read those first. Day 5 of Lotusphere 2011 always comes with mixed feelings. You get to say goodbye to your colleagues, but I'm extremely happy to go see my family.

So Thursday's highlight (for me) was the Ask the Product Managers session. For some reason, I was a bit nervous about this one, but it turned out to be just fine. I was all the way to the right of the stage (and was very conscious of the 1-2 inches I had; I thought my chair would fall at any second). (picture courtesy of Mitch)

As we introduced ourselves, Ed Brill wanted us to announce something that most people may have not been aware of. Thus, I announced the availability of the new Quickr 8.5 connector for Connections 3.0. It was made available on Saturday as people traveled to Lotusphere 2011. You can download it from the catalog.

Towards the very beginning of the session there was a question that was directed to me, but it was actually around the Quickr Connectors. Mac Guidera actually owns this particular module so I deflected the question to him.

Three quarters of the way into the session, I did get my first question from Lisa Duke: "Will Quickr D remain as a standalone product?" The answer was easy: "Yes!" and that made Lisa happy. Yay!

Mitch Cohen captured a live blog of the session, so check that out to get a transcript of what happened. After the session was done, I grabbed my lunch box and headed out to the airport to make my way back to SJU.

Now it's time to catch up with the feeds and see what I missed while I was heads down at #ls11.
