The Beginning of the Long Tail

So, Oracle OpenWorld 2007 is over. It was a milestone for a several reasons, the main one being: the conference was reinvigorated thanks to innovations like the Unconference, No Slide Zone, Oracle Wiki, Oracle Mix, etc. - the latter two still being in heavy use, even after the buildings have emptied.

(See the complete conference photostream here.)

The OTN presence there was also the most successful yet, with more than 3,500 people passing through the OTN Lounge and nearly 4,000 partying at OTN Night.  And it was personally a thrill for me to attach faces to email identities, having finally met folks like Chris Muir, Floyd Teter, Doug Burns, Jared Still, and others.

It was a conference for the ages, yeah!


Awesome photo you got there! Cheers!

Justin, I agree - it was the innovative elements of the conference that took OOW to a new level this year. I hope we'll see the innovative features you mentioned, as well as some new experiments, in OOW 08. Great to see you face-to-face as well!
