today is the first day of registration for lotusphere 2003, a conference run by lotus in orlando every january.

i have been a few times before, although not for the last couple of years. in the past it has attracted over 10,000 people and registration has closed in 3 hours but thanks to the recession and 9/11 (as it is known in the states) last year was apparently a lot smaller.

a couple of us have thrown our hats into the ring to do a presentation so i am not planning to register until we have heard the outcome of that.
