This time Social Connections is hosted in Vienna. The austrian capital is a great place to meet new and old friends. I love the city and the awesome dialect, to listen and practise a little bit, start with the lovely video about the only word you really need to survive in Vienna.

The next big IBM Connections Community event – Social Connections 9 – takes place November 05/06 in Ehningen / Germany. The theme of the event is “Working out loud” and it offers tons of sessions all around IBM Connections and Adoption in the social software world. This will be my fifth Social Connections Event after Zurich, Prague, Stockholm and Boston, for me all of them were great experiences and personally very successful. I have been working with ESS / ICS / Lotus products since 2000 and I followed many other community members through blogs, forums, web events and tweets, but I rarely had the chance to meet any of them in person.

Social Connections 8 ended some hours ago and first I want to thank the organization team ! It was a great job and an awesome conference you built here. The speaker gift was an absolute great idea! It was the first time Social Connections headed to the United States and the location at IBM Boston was a well made decision. I visited the Boston area the first time and enjoyed all the days. I already arrived on Sunday evening and had the pleasure to stay with Victor and his family until we headed to Boston. Thanks for the hospitality!
