I also heard a rumour from a former IBM employee that NSFDB2 is more or less dead. Having played around with it a little, I may understand the (not confirmed) decision. NSFDB2 doesn't seem to bring much functionality to the table. There is still the 64GB limit on Notes databases, the structure isn't easy to work with and with XPages, as Nathan proved, you are now able to do speedy semi-relational lookups with the new View Control.
On to Douglas Adams.
I was at a great dinner on tuesday, hosted by Symfoni Software. Met a lot of nice people. Amongst them, there was a guy from the Linde Group. He was from Gilford in the UK. As Gilford is the place Arthur Dent believed Ford Prefect to come from, this reminded me of Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy, which reminded me of my blog, which is more or less the reason I got to go to Lotusphere 2009, and also the reason I got invited to the Symfoni dinner (thanks, Trond Are). If it wasn't for Douglas Adams and his Hitchhiker's "trilogy", my blog would at least have a different name, or even worse, I might not have had a blog at all, resulting in not being at Lotusphere 2009..
On to wrapping up..
LS has been a nice experience. I learned what XPages is all about, got insight into what is planned for future versions of Domino Designer/XPages will bring,
This last day, I think I'll mostly stay at my room to keep the cold at bay. I'm leaving the sunny state tomorrow (just when it's starting to warm up), and I don't want to be a sneezing feverish monster. :)
