OOW09: And So It Begins

Today is the official start of Oracle OpenWorld. Strangely, I could have been there. At midnight on Thusday (Friday morning actually), I received an offer to fly me out and put me up for the week. With a young family and still being new at the job, I had to turn it down with such short notice. Where was the offer a month ago?

Poor Jake received a rather curse ridden vent email from me about the timing of this particular ask. Mr. OTN and himself helped to spearhead the initial push to sell T-Shirts to help fund my trip.

Enough about the past though. I'll just have to wait until next year.

With the volume of information both via twitter and blogs, I don't know if I would even need to, that's dumb, I need to cash in those beer I.O.U.s. :)

All of us not attending, will at least be able to see many (all?) of the keynote speeches via Oracle OpenWorld Live. At 5:45 PST, Larry Ellison and Scott McNealy will be speaking on Oracle and Sun:
Sunday is also SUNday at the show. So what's the scoop with Sun? Find out tomorrow—straight from the source—during the opening keynote in Moscone North, Hall D at 5:45 p.m. Scott McNealy is hosting an onstage discussion with Larry Ellison on Sun and Oracle's future plans.
which you'll be able to watch on the LiveStream site. I'm getting headphones so I can listen at work this week. I'll still have coverage posted, just without the fun of getting to know everyone in real-life.
