I spent much of today registering for Pulse, getting a sense of the conference layout, and grabbing a sneak peek of the Expo and General session areas. Here's a little preview below.
Barbara, at the registration desk, checked me in and gave me my nifty Pulse badge, cool Pulse bag, which contains the conference agenda, virtual Pulse Expo CD, hand sanitizer, and various fliers.
While registering, I checked out the Pulse bookstore and Pulse logo store. I couldn’t resist picking up a cool girly IBM hat and an IBM beanie baby bee for my son. Ok, maybe the bee is for me. ;) I received a free Pulse bag with my purchase.
When I was checking out the Pulse online area where attendees can check announcements and messages and complete Pulse surveys, I discovered that AllianceTech has a daily drawing for an iPod Touch giveaway based on the completion of Pulse session surveys. Learn more by visiting the laptops against the wall across from the Pulse registration area.
