So here we are again. I missed last years event. 2009 I was honored with the "10+ Medal". I guess it´s my 12th Lotusphere. Made it in time to Orlando. Flight was ok. Immigration was unusual easy and fast. Flight from Washington to Orlando was not packed as I expected. At this time usually all the flights to Orlando are fully booked. A bad sign for the number of attendees? Anyway. Met some nice folks at the airport and shared a Taxi to the Dolphin. Had a beer with Ortwin. Everything is fine. So I am curious, if Notes is still alive, if Connections is the new star, why Foundations had to die, etc. The answer is probably 42.
