Look Like My Blog Got to Cisco....

Last July, after arriving at Cisco Live (Networkers) and picking up my much anticipated, but subsequently inferior conference bag, I wrote a blog complaining how cheap they were. It seems like I got to Cisco. ;-) Cisco sent an e-mail today titled "Cast your Vote - Networkers Conference Bag":

Following the link in the e-mail takes you to the main Cisco Live website where you are entertained by a somewhat strange, but understandably tongue-in-cheek video of people modeling each bag.

When this Golden Globe video is over, you are presented with a picture of last year's bag and link to vote:

Now, why they would show last year's awful bag as the link to pick the new ones....but I digress. There are three bags for this year's upcoming conference.

All three look much better than the 2007 bag. They appear higher quality with more options. It seems silly, but I really look forward to getting a nice bag at this conference. For $2500 I think I should get two...but anyways. Besides, these are pure advertising for Cisco, with the Cisco logo in three locations and made with the company colors. Although next year's bags are black and grey (a change in Cisco colors coming????). :-) So, I'm going with B. I like the backpack design. I used the 2005 bag for 2 years until I recently started using the 2006 bag which was nicely stored under my desk for a while. No matter what, everyone can thank me for putting the pressure on Cisco to provide each of you a better conference bag in 2008. ;-)
