Still racing around trying to take it all in and failing miserably.
SO much to see and learn.
The opening keynote was high energy and lots of fun. Speakers included Jamie Thomas, Dr. Danny Sabbah, and Tom Hawk.
We learned about the exciting announcement about IBM Rational Software Delivery Services for the cloud.
We were introduced to the three teams who participated in our first software reality show "As Real as It Gets".
We were introduced to the three teams today, and got to see how the Blue Team fared. You can vote for your favorite team at http://www.rscvote.com/
Scott Hebner, VP of Rational Marketing and Strategy included a slide about our social media activities (w00t!)
After the opening keynote, everyone raced off to their favorite sessions and I headed over to the Swan to check out the Executive Summit.
This afternoon, I want to head over to the Jazz cafe and then at 5pm, the Solution Center and Exhibit Hall will open with a reception.
Let's see what trouble I can get into for the rest of the day.

Registration opened this morning at 7am, which I'm going to use as an excuse for my blurry photos. We're all a little blurry this morning.
