Off to OOW...

I'm off to Oracle Open World early tomorrow morning for the week.  I have a rather hectic schedule this year with two talks, two "meet and greet" sessions, a podcast interview, six customer talks/presentations, various group meals (like the ACE Dinner and maybe the blogger get together if I get back from a customer dinner early enough).

Add to that the fact that I'm book into a hotel at the SFO airport about 13.5 miles away - and that some of the events I have start at 7:30am downtown and finish at or after 9pm, it'll be a long long week.

Plus, I plan on putting an entry or two here with some photos over the week (and yes, still monitor asktom of course...)

At least it is only one hotel - that always makes it nice.  When you have to go from hotel to hotel every day - packing every morning and trying to keep the clean from the dirty - that can be a pain.

Friday will be good - spend the day on a plane, get home in time for dinner.  Looking forward to next weekend already...

I am looking forward for your "Things you think you know" session. I would like to have been on the other session but that one was already booked. Welcome to San Francisco, Tom...

Because I frequently visit four or five places in a week. The two weeks oct 2-13 I was in:

hartford CT
boston MA
augusta ME
dublin OH
kansas city MO
providence RI
boston MA

Every night, a different hotel...
