Wow. The word Expeditor is the second most heard word after geek overhere. In Europe there are no geeks. We don’t use the word. We know what nerds are, but there is no flattering equivalent for a more trendy nerd. Overhere everybody is a geek and proud to be. In Europe the word for it is: “I’m doing a lot of computerstuff, I’m interested in technology, but also have a life besides it”. Which is pretty much the same I guess
Also, sometimes I feel I’m not geek enough for this place: I don’t wear IBM t-shirts and gadgets. I only use the backpack they gave me, because it’s a good one and my 17″ laptop even fits in (ok, that last one must make me a geek again :-))
Yesterday I ran out of a mashup session. Today I was in an overflow session about Expeditor for LotusScripters. I did, because I am confused as a simple Notes Developer. I came out even more confused. First thing: it’s like we’re in some in between stage, where it’s not clear yet what to do with all these new tools. Other thing: there’s so much little steps you have to take. Where’s the RAD in this? Perhpas it’s just too soon to start working in it. I don’t have that much time to spend to figure it all out, and test, and try.
Ok, have to go now, I’m in a more practical session from Rocky Oliver.
