Vegas or Bust! Virtually Insane VMworld 2008 Coverage on VM /ETC

Virtually Insane!

My wife and I are leaving for VMworld 2008 in Las Vegas, NV tomorrow (Sunday). I’ll be packing today, and I plan on leaving some extra room in my luggage for all the swag to bring home. I’m also looking forward to all the announcements next week. It will be interesting to find out which predictions about VMworld were based on facts and which were just expectations based on rumors.

I had a couple of golf shirts made with the VM /ETC virtually insane logo that I’ll wear some of days at the conference. If you see me please say Hello! I had some 3″ stickers made too, and I’ll stick one of those on the side of my bag or some place noticeable. I’ve got some extra stickers so if you want one let me know, or maybe you’ll see one in an unsuspecting place next week. :)

I plan on live blogging here on VM /ETC, contributing posts to the Virtualization Pro Blog, joining in the discussions over at VMworldUnderground, and using Twitter (everybody is tweeting so I guess I’ll see what it is all about ?!). My Twitter account is being followed by the VMworld 2008 Twitter account, and the vmetc.com rss feed is aggregated in the planet vmworldunderground.com rss feed. Of course, both the VM /ETC Blog and the Virtualization Pro Blog are aggregated in the VMware Planet V12N feed.

I’m taking my camera so I should have a Picasa Photo album started by early next week. I’ll provide a link when I set it up, but it will most likely be on my Photos page. There are photos from VMworld 2007 already there so check those out if you want to reminisce for now.

I’ve also created a !VMworld! page here on VM /ETC that provides general Las Vegas info like live weather and local time along with the Twitter feeds already mentioned above.

I’m exhausted just thinking about all that writing and media cross coverage! It should be fun!

    Love your site but this is a big issue; “VM /ETC does not display correctly for Internet Explorer 7.” – can you fix this so we can track your updates, etc..!?!? As you might imagine, IE 7 is pretty popluar today so not sure what the glitch is but would be great if you can fix it… have a great trip & thx for your insights!

    LoveVDI,

    I wish I could fix it. It has something to do with my WordPress Theme, but I haven’t been able to get to the bottom of it. I hate to have to abandom this theme, but I might have to in the near future.

    For now you can scroll up and down to make the disappearing posts show back up in IE 7. It’s a pain I know. Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari all work fine if you want to try another browser. You can also subscribe to my RSS feed in the reader of your choice.

    Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for reading vmetc.com
