I’ve signed up for Oracle OpenWorld Connect, joined the Oracle Bloggers group on LinkedIn, and even expanded my account on Twitter. It’s a funny thing, but somehow I don’t feel any more connected than I did before. Anyway, following the lead of numerous Oracle bloggers, here’s my QuickConnect card in case anybody wants to hook up at OOW:
Getting to the real point of this post, I want to follow up on Jake’s "Can of Worms" article at Oracle AppsLab by making full and open disclosure about my status in attending OOW. Oracle has provided me with complimentary registration because I’m a panelist host on Sunday and a speaker on Thursday. I don’t believe the complimentary registration will cause any bias in my coverage of OOW, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. In any event, I wanted to be completely above board here. My employer, the Jet Propulsion Lab, is covering my travel expenses. My entertainment expenses will be covered by anybody with the poor judgment to pay for my entertainment...and, trust me, I will spend their money foolishly.
