According to Ed,
What will it be doing? Well, that depends on the city. In some locations, it’s going to be at a particular event — for example, in Chicago on October 6 it will be at the IBM Lotus “Smarter Collaboration” event, and I will be doing my part of the LotusUserGroup.org Notes/Domino 8.5.1 webcast that day from the comfort of the bus. In other cities, details will be announced as the bus goes along.
Mary Beth Raven has a totally different idea, and I kinda support her. If it does happen, this would be very cool.
I like the idea of a reality show where we load some developers, designers and testers on the bus and head slowly toward Florida for Lotusphere.. and the idea is to design and build the Opening general session demo while on the bus… (and voting folks off)… hum.. as long as I am not one of the ones stuck on the bus.
I wonder if we can do live webcast of the Lotus Knows tribal council voting. In the mean time, I’ll keep you posted with twitpics, blog postings and even videos. Stay tuned.
And see you at the Toronto event on Nov 2nd.
