Wednesday's winding down. The engineering panel was a hit once again, and the room was packed. Lots of show attendees are getting ready to head out to Treasure Island--but there's one day left.
No keynotes on Thursday; we just dive right into the last round of technical sessions (all of which are at the Hotel InterContinental).
SPECIAL OFFER: Tomorrow morning, I'm going to be at the Virtual Compute Appliance demo, part of the Engineered Systems showcase in Moscone North, at the foot of the big staircase, at 7:30 AM (!).
As an earlybird special for anyone joining me at that hour, after having been appreciated the night before: the first three people to greet me with the exact phrase:
"Yo, dude. I read your blog."
