Two yellow-shirted fellows came by our booth yesterday, and I started chatting with them. Was having a nice conversation, and I decided to ask them what part of IBM they were with, and where were they based? "Westford, Mass, in the Notes development group, Directory team," was the answer.


"Oh," I said. "Sure... You must work with Ken Lin."


"I am Ken Lin,

was the response.


Note to self: don't drop names without first looking at badges!

Josh and I were surveying the floor, inquiring about how products access our directories, as we're always interested.

It was a nice chuckle and makes for a great story. We both were glad to finally meet and chat with you in person.

BTW, during the conference I was thinking that staring down at people's middles to read their badges is a bit awkward (and may even be rude). I was thinking that maybe we should wear hats with badge holders - kind of like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_poker.
