I’m in Orlando this week for the Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, one of the bigger tech conferences of the year. Keynotes from Steve Ballmer (Microsoft), John Chambers (Cisco), Craig Barrett (Intel) and Scott McNealy (Sun). A lot of sessions on content management and intranets, looks to be mostly focused on Sharepoint. I did see there is a birds of a feather lunch with one table for Blogs and Wikis use in business.

Weather here this week is unreal – high 80s with no clouds forecast for most every day. And I’ll get to spend quite a bit of time in it because I have to walk about half a mile to and from the bus stop for the conference shuttle. That’s what I get for saving the company $100/night by staying in a second tier hotel. Plus with the conference spread over 4 hotels there will be plenty of walking between sessions as well, much of it potentially outside. The sunburn won’t be from golf, honest!
