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?

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.
