Expo Season - Come listen at SNWE Frankfurt

I'm sure more than a few of you will know what I mean when I say I've been in "PowerPoint Hell" recently...
With various internal executive visits, updates on where we are, where we are going and technical discussion points, its always amusing how much time a decent "slide" takes to produce. I once read that the bulleted list was one of the worst mechanisms for portraying information... yet we all spend some much time refineing out bullets... and it is true, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Anyway, one good thing is that I'll be attending London's "IP Expo" at Earls Court next month, 7th and 8th October, without any bulleted lists. If you are attending, be sure to stop by the IBM stand and come say hi.
I'm not sure yet if I will make StorageExpo the following week, the organisers really need to think about timing, with IP Expo the week before and SNW in Phoenix the same week.
However, I'm afraid bullet points have been used in the presentation I will be using in my keynote speech on the 27th of October at SNWE in Frankfurt -"Storage Virtualization - The Whole Story"
I will be in Frankfurt for the Tuesday and Wednesday with various one on one sessions booked with customers and the press. If you are attending and would like to discuss anything with me, grab me after my speech, or drop me an email to barry_whyte (at) uk.ibm.com and we can get something setup.
