Intermittently over the last ten years, I've attended SHARE meetings, and most times I've prepared a trip report for the folks back home. They are all collected here for your perusal.
If you have ever thought about joining SHARE, scan a couple of my reports. They will give you some idea of the things that SHARE does well. You will also get some impression of the sort of foolishness that makes me crazed; I don't tolerate marketing hype or PR wonks very well. And I despise arrogance in all forms -- IBM is certainly not immune to that particular disease.
Still and all, I recommend the SHARE experience. It is a lot cheaper than conventional education boondoggles, and it attracts a fair number of propeller heads and space cadets; they keep IBM honest.
