I spent the day at the Lawson Conference and User Exchange in Atlanta, George. The conference is being held at the Georgia World Congress Center. The opening session included a presentation by Jerry Linenger, an astronaut who spent 5 months aboard the Muir Space Station. His presentation was titled Embracing Challenges and Change: My 132 Days off the Planet. He had some amazing stories; it sounded like they kept the Muir going with baling wire and chewing gum. His story about fighting a fire in the Muir space station was particularly incredible.
I attend three break-outs sessions, including What's New in Human Resources Version 8.1, Becoming a Power User of the Lawson Portal, and What's new in Procurement Version 8.1.
After a 10k on the treadmill, Donna and I joined the Lawson Account representative and a group of other major customers for a dinner at a restaurant called Spice.
