Oracle OpenWorld Closes With "It's a Wrap" Event

Attendees Enjoy Live Music, Sunshine, and Piles of Good Eats
The attendees may have been tired from a week of seeing, learning, and meeting. They may have been over saturated with technical info. Loaded down with swag. Ready to get on home. But they still showed up to close out Oracle OpenWorld 2010 at the "It's a Wrap" event on Thursday in Yerba Buena Gardens.
There was plenty of good ol' Rock 'n' Roll, with Oracle's own Tom Geck fronting the band.
"We're going to try and play one song from each of the (Appreciation Event) bands," said Tom.
And while the crowd called out for "Fergalicious," he offered up "The Joker" by Steve Miller.
That was close enough. Some people danced while others helped themselves to piles of hot dogs, tacos, salads and wraps, candy and cookies, and lots of cold beer courtesy event sponsor Tsing Tao.
The crowd grew. The food diminished. Then slowly, the crowd diminished until only the waiters and caterers were left to clean up.
And so, on the kind of warm, lovely day that has eluded San Francisco all summer, Oracle OpenWorld 2010 came to a close.
