Wow, what a fantastic whirlwind experience at the Pulse conference in Orlando last week. Expect many blogs to come on this topic alone. :) If you were at the conference, you know of all the great and exciting activities and announcements. If not, check out our Pulse blog for a summary of daily highlights. Add to or read the blog comments to share or find out insider moments, such as when someone stopped breathing in the middle of Lance Armstrong's keynote address!
All the hip people were participating in online group messaging and microblogging on Twitter during the conference. If you were following along, you would've learned in advance about the bad parking situation, poor wireless connectivity, great restaurants, who was giving away the best trinkets (such as a Wii and Blackberry) at the Expo, cool hangouts, spontaneous meetups, and yes, even conference stuff such as analyst opinions on IBM's view of Cloud computing. To get a snapshot of some of the discussion, see the #ibmpulse hashtag.
Some notable Twitter participants: cote, dmcclure, petermarshall77, austingringo, botchagalupe, leaderothepack, heathnewburn, and oh yes, rhetorica2 (aka me ;) ).
Thanks to everyone who has shared their pictures with our Pulse group in Flickr. We know some of you still have some great Hootie pics out there! :) Follow these Flickr instructions if you're willing share with the group. I'm still working on uploading all the great "live stories from Pulse" videos to YouTube. I'll blog about these when they're done.
