It's over. RSA 2009 San Francisco is in the can. It was a good show, the RSA staff does a nice job organizing this event with good speakers, good training and a centralized place to find food and hotels. Which is cool because Cisco Live 09 is going to be at this same exact spot in a few months.
I got to meet some great folks that I have worked with in the past and others that I look forward to working with in the future. That's the best part of these type of shows; the personal connections.
A massively huge thanks to all the folks that dropped by the Cisco booth to say hey. A great big thanks to the folks I did booth interviews with:
Breaking Point: http://www.breakingpointsystems.com
Phone Factor: http://www.phonefactor.com
Net Optics: http://www.netoptics.com
I interviewed these folks by choice because I thought they offered the coolest shipping technical solutions for engineers in the field today. go out there and check 'um out and see what you think. We will have video posted at http://www.cisco.com/go/techwisetv later on.
Now it's back to Milwaukee to detox from convention center food and get ready for a show on VOIP. We are looking to do something on PBX to VOIP migration and SIP Trunking. Whatta y'all think?
