San Francisco is known for its natural beauty and iconic man-made landmarks. But what is not commonly known is that the city is also haunted.
From opening day through It's a Wrap!, the official show daily newspaper covered all the highlights of Oracle OpenWorld 2011.
Yes, Oracle OpenWorld is a must-attend technology event, where one can learn about Oracle and partner solutions to enhance business. Another great reason to attend? To visit the massive, sold-out Exhibition Halls for tchotchkes and booth fun.
Here's a recap of all the great goodies and giveaways. And in the meantime, get ready for next year's goodies & giveaways: Register for Oracle OpenWorld 2012.
Now that’s something one doesn’t see every day! A full-size, 45-foot, 2,910-pound catamaran in the lobby of a convention center. But the boat is there, in Moscone West at Oracle OpenWorld, as part of the ORACLE Racing and America’s Cup Extreme Experience.

Grammy-winning musician appearing live at Appreciation Event
Oracle is excited to announce that world-renowned musician Sting will perform live during Oracle OpenWorld 2011. Sting took a few minutes from his busy schedule to answer our five questions:
Q: When were you last in San Francisco and what do you love about the city and California?
Sting: I was last in San Francisco a couple of years ago (May 18, 2009) to perform at a benefit concert for the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. It’s a great city and one I truly enjoy visiting. Like so many who grew up in England under the rain clouds, coming to California is always a breath of fresh air for me.
Q: What excites you the most about playing live and what kind of experience do you want your audience to have?
Sting: All I ever wanted to be in life is a musician. I love being on stage and seeing the audience enjoy themselves and most importantly, be surprised. The element of surprise is really the one essential in music. I think every time you perform a song you have to breathe new life into it, especially with a song like “Roxanne” that I’ve performed thousands of times. It’s my job to discover something new or some alternate meaning and to present even the smallest variation each time I sing it.
Q: Why are you passionate about protecting the rainforest—what's the one thing that everyone could do to help?
Sting: I see what’s happening in the rainforest as a universal problem that affects us all. I was fortunate enough to travel to the Amazon and meet with indigenous peoples, and that really gave rise to a passion in me to help protect these natural resources for present and future generations. Trudie and I are very proud of the work we’ve done in the Amazon and with The Rainforest Foundation. I think the most important thing to do is raise awareness and try to stir a desire in people to do whatever they can to help out.
Q: You've got a busy summer planned, capped off with your performance at Oracle OpenWorld 2011. What do you like most about touring?
Sting: There’s no way to describe the feeling of going on stage in front of thousands of people who are pleased to see you. That’s something you can’t be blasé about. I also feel as though I’m probably at my most free when I am singing, and touring gives me the opportunity to experience that honesty and candidness almost every night.
