It is always hard to explain Lotusphere to those who have never been, part conference, part family reunion. It was incredible the number of people who stopped me this week, both friends, vendors, and complete strangers (as much as any lotusphere attendee can be a stranger) to offer words of encouragement and support over Elisa’s recent battle with cancer.

My employer continues to see the value of Lotusphere and made attending possible again this year, thank you.

This morning we are celebrating real survivors, including my favorite survivor pictured here.

Tweetdeck (Air version)
There are others like Otixo which I used which transitioned from Freemium to paid, at which point I made a value judgement that it was not worth it to me to pay for that service. Ultimately you get what you pay for, and when you are not paying, you are simply hoping the free service you are us [read] Keywords: facebook
Oxford University Blocks Google Docs
Tue, Feb 19th 2013 6:15a Mitch Cohen This story caught e eye this morning, Oxford University made a decision to block Google Docs on the campus network at least temporarily for security reasons.
