OOW 09: Day 3 Wrap Up

Today was the big keynote from Mr. Larry Ellison himself.

Ian Abramson, President of the IOUG, calls it LarryDay.

Larry was joined by the governor of California, also known as the Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The Blogger meet-up seemed to be a resounding success, Doug Burns does a brief wrap-up here. I'm going out on a limb here, but Doug might have a few...problems.

Alex Gorbachev organized this years meet-up, but he doesn't have a post up about it yet. However, he does have some interesting pictures here. He's got a few Pythian OOW Diary videos on YouTube as well.

Steward Bryson from Rittman Mead starts off the day with this post. As does George Trujillo.

Debra Lilley, released some screenshots of some Fusion apps here (I still have no idea what Fusion is, do you?). You may know Debra from her travels with Stanley.

Todd Sheetz (one of the best last names ever), aka the Cheesehead DBA, talks about his Wednesday here.

Richard Foote wraps up Day 3 here (I think I'm a day behind...or ahead...whatever).

Oracle Closed World
Moans Nogood seems to have started the Unconference's unconference, aka, Oracle Closed World. Read about it here and here. Something else I'll have to keep in mind for next to gain entry into this exclusive club.

That's pretty much all I've got. Fusion seemed to be the big announcement today, but like I said, I don't really know WTF it is yet...other than some vague notion of middle-ware. Not much this year on database related announcements, all those came prior to OOW.

Tonight is the big party at Treasure Island with Aerosmith, Roger Daltry, The Wailers and some others. I'm sure it will be a fun time.
