to stay on the topic "wheel":  once the wheel is invented, spin it, spin
it, spin it!  Else, why was it invented in the first place?

answer is subordinated to the next question.

LGM for me is a very important spoke of the wheel.  The wheel turns - it's
the development cycle, and every now and then one cycle completes and it
is time to kick off the next one.

LGM is a great place to coordinate such cycles, have face to face meeting
within the project, celebrate the end of one cycle and the beginning of

LGM is also a great place to meet and see what is going on at other teams
/ projects; and in the world of the users.  It is a place for the
cross-pollination of ideas and for inspiration.

Inspiration horizontally (from project to project), vertically (between
project and users, both ways), internally (intra-project planning
sessions, BoF, etc.)

Now I can answer what I expect from LGM 2011.

Honestly: I don't know - but at this stage of the process I did not have
an idea what to expect from LGM 2009 and what got out of it was pretty
cool from my perspective.

My *wish* for 2011 is to be able to make time again and to participate.

My *expectation*, for LGM 2011 an beyond, is that it continues the
tradition of what I have seen in the past, with
horizontal/vertical/internal inspiration that only face to face meeting
can bring about.

Long live LGM, no matter where the next venue is.
