The Word from the Web - 11/06/2009
The chatter about the show on the InterWebs is slowing down a bit, but we still found some interesting reading about your experiences at Oracle OpenWorld 2009. If you haven't been featured in our Around the World series, take this opportunity to add your two cents in our comments section.
Tweeters Attending OOW09
Before the show, we told you about—and added ourselves to—the list George Woods put together of Twitter users headed to Oracle OpenWorld 2009. Now that Twitter has released its Lists feature to all users, George has turned his list into a Twitter List. Follow it to keep in touch with all the great connections you made at the show.
Open World Wrap Up
Debra Lilley has been itching to talk about Fusion Applications. Now—finally—she can. But she also shares her overall impressions of the 2009 event. Check out both posts to get the perspective of the Deputy Chairman of the UKOUG.
Meeting My Fans
One of our favorite attendees at this year's show was Stanley, The ACE Vest. His agenda was very busy, including an Unconference session, despite recent surgery. But that didn't keep him away from his fans. See who shares a love for both Stanley and the great blue yonder. (Editor's note: Has anyone else noticed Stanley and Debra have similar writing styles?)
Oracle Usability Labs—A Day In The Life
Project Manager (and self-confessed BBQ King) Floyd Teter landed in San Francisco a few days before the start of Oracle OpenWorld for some preshow business he promised would "rock in the extreme." He wasn't kidding. Turns out, he spent the day at our Usability Lab here on campus. Take a look at what got him away from the BBQ grill a few days early.
