IDF 2009: First Morn

Silent Mike's Blog

Early morn breakfast at the Marriot Hotel in downtown San Francisco with HP and a hundred-odd journalists, followed by an intro of the company's Skyroom, a hi-def videoconferencing and collaboration tool soon to be available for $149. A short jaunt to the Moscone convention center, up to the big hall on the 3rd floor where 4,000 attendees await the first keynote speaker, Intel CEO Paul Otelinni, surrounded with multiple billboard sized screens and loud rock music. "Continuum. Moving seamlessly throughout the computing continuum," is the motto of the presentation, which you can view in its entirety at the IDF Press Room within 24 hrs. * Forum discussion.
