IT Expo - Day 2 Highlights

The show wraps up today, and I'll be busy moderating a panel on the state of IPTV. Got 6 companies speaking, and I'm sure it will be lively. Things wind down after that, and by 3, this place will be pretty quiet and by 4 am sure it will be deserted.

Wanted to share a few photos from yesterday. I had my hands full with briefings and video interviews, so I have nothing to report on the sessions. I was also involved in the reception hosted by the Government of Ontario and the Consulate General of Canada. That was a lot of fun, and it was great to showcase some strong and emerging companies based in Ontario, and get them in front of such a large audience. Of course the Apple/Bose prize draw had something to do with that, but hey, it worked, and I think everyone went home happy.


Dialogic's Jeff Dworkin showing us the next wave in how to be a 2.0 exhibitor - the "blounge". It's a cross between a booth and lounge. Notice how their space is just sofas and easy chairs. No bouncy balls or pens, and no boxes to touch or flashy lights to entice your inner geek. Just come in, sit down, and let's talk. Gee, why didn't I think of that???

Full moon on the beach - very relaxing way to walk off dinner...
