The Final Countdown

Oracle OpenWorld 2009: It's a WrapMore than 1,800 sessions. Four hundred partner exhibits. One amazing show. The curtain came to a close for Oracle OpenWorld 2009 Thursday afternoon under the Howard Street Tent at the It's a Wrap party.
Oracle customers, partners, and employees savored one final opportunity to network, and enjoyed one last reason to celebrate: another successful show. The Five Hundred sweated out favorites from Stevie Ray Vaughan, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, and The Violent Femmes at the tent's east-end stage. Attendees got to put off finding room for all their tchotchkes for a few hours as they snacked on chili dogs, pasta salads, tacos and popsicles—a respite before return trips home.
