Notes from Rational Support

I knew that IBM System z is powerful, but....
Houston, we have lift-off!
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.
Today is Voice of the Client Day, and Business Partner Development Day, with sessions being held all day. Beth Friday, VP of WW Rational Support and Mike O'Rourke, VP of Development currently presenting the VoiCE keynote.

Hopefully, my photos will get sharper as the day goes on.
Hopefully, *I* will get sharper as the day goes on.

The new moo cards are here! The new moo cards are here!
Pat O'Connor did a great job this year designing our Limited Edition, highly collectable, sure-to-be-worth-MILLIONS Rational Support moo cards for RSC 2009.
How do you get yours?
1) Wander down to the Solution Center and find the eSupport pedestal (look for the blimp). Pat O'Connor, aka @RationalWebGuy will be manning the pedestal and will have cards.
2) I will be at the conference, in the role of roving reporter. I'll be blogging, twittering, taking photos and getting into trouble. I will have cards. So how do you find me? Follow http://www.twitter.com/rationalsupport.
3) You may even occasionally find them lurking in random corners of the conference.
Only the Shadow knows....
Well, it's official.
I'll be making my 4th trip to the Rational Software Conference in Orlando, May 31 through June 4. Whoo hoo!
I'll be blogging and twittering and taking pictures, and being a general nuisance.
We've got a Twitter ID: @rsc2009. We've got a Twitter hashtag for all your #RSC2009 tweets. We're on facebook.
We've got Danny Sabbah, Steve Mills, Scott Hebner, Grady Booch and ... the Mythbuster guys!
There will be 2009 limited edition Rational Support Moo cards, if I ever get off my butt and order them.
The indefatigable Patrick O'Connor will be manning the eSupport pedestal in the Solution Center and would LOVE to show you the new and whammy IBM Support Portal, scheduled for full deployment later this year.
Very exciting stuff ... more to come, I'm sure!
Who else is going? Tweetup, anyone?
