Yes, I had to play my trivia... :) One common thread in the items above, as well as the other summaries of Oracle OpenWorld 2008, is that there is SO MUCH going on. Combine the sessions that we attended, the Oracle events that we all enjoyed, the non-Oracle things that we all did (San Francisco is, after all, San Francisco) - and lump in the private meetings that none of us blogged about - and it makes for a very full week. (I used to call OpenWorld a firehose, but now I call it a raging river.) There is a page on the wiki (see the URL) that records the Thursday brainstorming session on things people want to see in Oracle OpenWorld 2009. I've started an idea thread on Oracle Mix (see the URL) to capture additional thoughts.
