I am sitting here at the Connecticut DMV and while standing in line I was thrilled to see an employee with a smartphone and printer approach me and give me a "reservation #" so I could then wait at the next area. I am not sure if the wait has decreased but at least I am sitting and working.
I must say though I am never comfortable coming to the DMV. The signage is terrible - sure it has improved over the years but I ended up in the wrong line for a while.
I stopped by the Utah Olympic Park in Park City and took the tour which was very informative. Sadly, I didn't get to see any athletes training. I did notice AT&T had very fast service here with full bars throughout my tour. I felt like I was in a commercial actually because I had to download a presentation of about 4 MB while here for proofing purposes. Verizon only had a 3G connection with three out of four bars on my MiFi device. BTW, athletes train here all year long but sadly I didn't get to see any. This trip reminded me of the Vancouver Olympics I was lucky enough to witness as a VIP thanks to Avaya.
I am at Adaptive Computing's 2012 user conference in beautiful Park City, Utah. The Hyatt Escala Resort is the host of the conference and is located on a ski slope in Park City, Utah. The air is fresh, the weather is good and I am looking forward to some awesome education on HPC and cloud computing. I speak on cloud computing trends this Wednesday and am looking forward to it. The photo of the lake below is one of the more beautiful sites I have seen so far but this is gorgeous country even if you don't ski. It is worth a trip.
Across the board, I think most people will tell you the event is working really well. The hallways are full with activity, the sessions are well attended, the content is great, and the breadth of subject matter is far too great for any human to consume.
My day was spent either in briefings or moderating, so I didn't have a chance to see any other sessions. It's too bad, since there's really strong content for me in tracks such as Cloud Communications, SIP Trunking, 4GWE, M2M - and others.
There have been many competing shows over the years, most notably VON, which suffered an untimely demise. ITEXPO and VON were the two best shows focused on VoIP and IP communications.
