it looks like lotusphere is going to be a lot smaller than previous years. this is actually a good thing, fewer people means that i get more time with the top techies that i want to speak to. the last time i went there were about 10,000 people but this year looks like it will be closer to 3,000. the only down-side is that the parties will be a lot smaller.

it's also time to start monitoring the gonzo lotusphere page that the turtle runs every year.
