Every website now supports some kind of wish list: Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Buy.com … you name it, they have a list in their databases that captured all those things I would like to buy but either have no money for or that my wife would take exception to … such as a new set of golf clubs, a full edition of the Encyclopedia Brittanica, that blue Porsche I like (which list was that on again??)
… well you get it.
Now, just having been at yesterday’s DCLug I was wondering if I shouldn’t create a LUG Wish List for myself. And since we are in the era of social media and exchanging information – I am going to post it for all you to read. Here my top LUG wishes:
Speak at Hawaiian LUG
If that single Hawaii blog reader I have sends me a post card with an invite – I am there, brother!
Present at Rio de Janeiro LUG
I have not been to Rio in years, but I know I have so much to offer. Also, I think Brazilian coffee is among the best in the world and everybody knows daddy likes his coffee – it also helps me speak even faster than normal and I could present more content in the same amount of time. A clear win-win situation for all involved.
South African LUG: Co-present on how Lotus Products can ensure world peace with Nelson Mandela
Me and Nelson, we could seriously tear it up there. No more needs to be said.
Australia LUG Extravaganza
Present at (a? the?) Australia LUG that is scheduled to coincide with a Rugby Game between Australia and New Zealand. Incorporate Rugby sports and philosophy into the presentation of effective end user administration. End presentation with several pints of Fosters and maybe a Koala or two dancing on the screen. Clearly, I am the first to come up with that idea and it should be explored further.
Czeck LUG Experience
Be invited to present at the Czeck LUG that will be held at Czesky Budejovice. . My topic would probably be how to improve Lotus Connections deployments with the help of Budvar - a sure winner in my mind. Anything and everything works better when consuming some of the world’s best beer and it helps take the pain away from dealing with CA’s SiteMinder product. SSO at it’s worst . . . . .
And last but no least -
Be the Featured presenter at the All-France LUG in Moissac
This one is easy – my paternal grandmother was from Moissac and supposedly there is a handbag of hers still somewhere there int he municipal lost-and-found center that I could lick up. Also, it is some of the most beautiful country in France and has good food and nice people (after all, Grandma was from there) – we could then make part two of the LUG happen at Toulouse … just an idea.
Well, here you have it – my top LUG wishes. Now all we need is the power of social media and Santa Claus to make these wishes come true.
