Forgive the fact that I haven't updated since Sunday. There's a lot of oysters, beer and TechEd goodness going on and I've been a little busy.
New Orleans Oyster Festival on Saturday and had the best chargrilled oysters from Oceana and Peacemaker Po'boys from Acme Oyster Co. Eating that delicious food in 100 degree heat and matching humidity makes a man thirsty, so mass quantities of beer and hurricanes were in order. Later in the evening, more oysters met their fate on the chargrill at Acme off Bourbon Street.
I held the Exchange Roundtable at The Rusty Nail near the convention center Monday night. The bar was, well, "colorful" with lots of local flavor. I'm glad none of us got mugged on the way there. It was attended by about 25 people including Exchange product team notables, such as Ross Smith IV, Scott Schnoll, and Kumar Venkateswar. It was great to have some time to discuss Exchange issues and have some "how it works" discussions. Thanks to everyone who attended! I hope to do this again next year.
This morning I was invited to join Paul Robichaux for breakfast at Cafe Beignet with other Exchange notables. Great beignets and cafe au lait, not to mention the conversations! Thanks, Paul.
The rest of the day was full of regular attendee sessions and talking with people. Tonight is the MVP IT Influencers party at the Aquarium of the Americas and the ClusterFunk party. should be another evening to remember (if I can).
