It’s been chaos all day long yesterday. Some of you might have expected me to do actually live blogging and that’s what I had originally planned indeed. But after being added to the SRM Lab and last minute Community Lounge there’s no way I can find the time to do some actual blogging, or even twitter these days.
I’m not even going to try to recap yesterday in terms of announcements. No way I can keep up with the constant flow of information/announcements being published / exposed by my fellow bloggers. Most of them are featured on PlanetV12N or use twitter anyway so you can easily keep track of what’s happening at VMworld.
I do want to tell you guys about the VMTN Experts Session we had yesterday. Although the turn up wasn’t what we hoped for I do think the session was useful. All the VMTN experts and important bloggers, and I guess we can openly call them vExperts today, were there and you actually had the chance to talk to people who’s avatar you normally only see on Twitter or the forums. The conversations we had were awesome.
I’ve got a totally different view of some people. Some of them I only know via their short tweets or replies on the forum or even blog articles. Some posts/tweets get interpreted a certain way because of a feeling/association you have with the person. Interpreting posts on the internet is hard and I know I will definitely think different about certain people and posts, which is a good thing.
I was really honored to meet people like Mike Laverick, Scott Herold, Jason Boche and Tom Howarth. There contributions in terms of VMTN community posts and moderation, blog articles, books and just VMware / Virtualization evangelism in general is outstanding and I highly respect their input, effort and knowledge! Great to finally meet you guys!
Now head over to PlanetV12n and read up. I will give my take on all the announcements when the storm is over though!
PS: A reminder to some of the bloggers out there, if you visit the Live Labs and want to take pictures / film the technology preview please ask the VMware Employees if you’re allowed to do so…
