IMPACT 2008 keynotes focused on Smart SOA technologies as the gold standard. A Smart car was given away to the attendee who answered a list of questions about SOA in the shortest time. And a few attendees/wannabe songwriters had their SOA-focused lyrics, created in honor of WebSphere's birthday, performed by a live band at the final day opening session. The tunes were well short of breathtaking but easily rivaled Amy Winehouse's Rehab lyrics, in the opinion of this humble critic.
