Wow – Lotusphere really is as cool as they say

Well I am into my 3rd day of being in Orlando and Lotusphere has really kicked off.

I arrived late Friday night – pulled a 25 hours day – so just ate then slept
Saturday was a great day .. after breakfast my friend (who isn’t a geek and has come for *the ride*) hit the Magic Kingdom – after 6 hoursof fun I headed back to arrive late for the BALD meet.

I have met up with some great people – old friends πŸ˜‰ and finally got to meet some of the fabulous community guys that put up with my ranting via twitter. I have checked out Kimonos and the jury is still out on saki – def not warm that is just SO wrong !! the ESPN bar is very cool and very busy but the burgers are great ..

I am currently sat in the Dolphin lobby in a hugely oversized chair (i feel about 12 as my feet don’t even come close to the floor) and the Lotusphere back pack makes a great footstool πŸ™‚ my *normal* size laptop wont fit in the LS bag so I will have to fall back on the old IBM common rucksack .. there are geeks everywhere – its only missing Dave Hay to be an ΓΊbber geek fest πŸ™‚

the only bummer on the day so far is they are playing James bloody Blunt on the PA system
