I have arrived. Bad weather and fog delayed some flights into Orlando, but mine was on time. Landed at 11.35 right on schedule, and took a cab to Swan where I am staying. I registered and went to Big River on the Boardwalk to grab lunch. Just got back to my room (12th floor and nice view, see below) and is taking a break. Soon heading to the BALD gathering at Big River, I think.
The only disapointment was that I, as press (I am going as press since I in addition to being a developer also write articles for Computer Sweden), did not get a backpack. This is my 11th Lotusphere in Orlando, and every other year we got a backpack like everyone else.
I wonder how much money IBM is saving on that, can’t be that much… Oh well.
