I posted this idea on my blog first, but then thought it really belonged here: 
 
Adam Gartenberg proposed an idea on his blog, and I wanted to take it one step further. He suggested an UnLotusphere where people could post the sessions they had that were rejected to let people see them on slideshare or some such services.
Since I am in a rather unique position with my Lotusphere Sessions db, I suggested that I would be willing to list the "virtual sessions" along with the "real sessions", although listed as unscheduled. I have been bouncing the idea of a few others, and decided I'd rather not focus on "rejected sessions" as much as "supplemental sessions". Whether you have a session/presentation that you suggested, or one that you would never have suggested because you are shy or it is too narrow in focus, we could list it. For example, I could do a presentation on LSX development that would be too specific for Lotusphere, but might be perfect for some who are or are not attending Lotusphere. If you have a presentation, we could link to it. If you want to go further and have samples or audio or even video, we could link to that. You could then be listed as a "speaker" in the sessions database and your sessions would show up on a search for "SameTime" or "XPages" or "LSX" or whatever.

The idea is not to water down the impact of Lotusphere, but to add the power of the infinite slots that other track managers don't get. I think of it as a Virtual Lotusphere Annex, adding the blogophere and web to the Swan and Dolphin and Yacht Club as potential venues. Of course, I would not have to deal with the limitations of scheduling or fitting people into the room. I haven't had a lot of time to think this true, but I'd be curious to hear your views/ideas.

I long ago reserved www.virtuallotusphere.com { Link } for this type of purpose. This would be a great place for all other "presentations" that perhaps are not as mainstream.

Maybe this would be a good place for different people to showcase applications that could be used to handle all the content and comments, etc?

I can provide a public server and the domain (and of course, Domino) but it would take a few people some effort to put this together.

Volunteers?

I think whoever does this really needs to be dedicated to it and ensure it succeeds. It takes a lot of time and effort to run public services, much more than anybody who hasn't done it can imagine. Think, plan, strategize, budget and then execute.
3) Ben Langhinrichs6999 (18 Nov 2008)
Bruce - I absolutely agree. In this case, I think I have the advantage that a good deal of the infrastructure is in place, the promotion is already done, and the idea is a fairly logical extension of the current use of the database. That by no means guarantees success, but in computer terms, the database degrades to the status quot ante, which has been remarkably popular by itself for years. It may even be an idea I can introduce and build up to due to the consistent audience. Those are my thoughts, at least. I'd be happy to hear any more ideas/concerns you have as well.

Perhaps we need a LotusSphereJam where people post presentations and the community votes on them. The prize, a spot at the real lotusphere (all expenses paid).
