Lotusphere 2009 Report Day 2 - Basking in the resonance and Lotusphere Idol!

It's Tuesday night around 11:30 and I'm beat. My seventh Lotusphere to date and honestly I cannot recall another Lotusphere that has been this energized and alive with passion from this group of people, the Lotus faithful. The theme for Lotuphere 2009 is "Resonance". One of the definitions on dictionary.com for the word describes the following:
the state of a system in which an abnormally large vibration is produced in response to an external stimulus, occurring when the frequency of the stimulus is the same, or nearly the same, as the natural vibration frequency of the system.
Abnormally large vibration in response to an external stimulus. Lotusphere is that external stimulus that we, the faithful, need. When we leave here later this week, what are we going to do in our daily business that will make that vibration felt? What will we do that will show our management, our CIO's, the neighbors dog that this product line is not dead. It's alive, robust and hopefully with the this new leadership at the helm, ready to put up on hell of a fight. So far I have seen several things revolving around just the core functionality of the Domino 8.5 product that I know will be able to increase functionality and performance for all my users.
So, enjoy the final two days here at Lotusphere. Soak up as much as we can and let's take it back to our worlds and resonant it with those that we need to.
