From one salt lake to another

It's the month of March, and if you work for Novell that can only mean one thing: it's BrainShare time again.

BrainShare is Novell's annual technical conference and takes place over five days in Salt Lake City, Utah, attracting around 7000 customers, partners and employees. Salt Lake City is so named because it is close to a guessed it... a salt lake, rather like the one I swam in at the weekend.

This will be my eighth BrainShare and I have to say I'm quite looking forward to it. I'll miss Karen and the children as I always do, but this will be the first time I'll have interacted face-to-face with anyone else from Novell since coming out here so it'll be a good opportunity to catch up with some friends, and learn about all the new products we have coming out.

Anyway, don't want to bore you with work stuff but I posted this to explain why I probably won't be posting much over the next couple of weeks. I'll be back at the end of the month and will tell you all about it then.

Looking forward to seeing you at Brainshare! (Even though I don't know you, it's nice to see that other people are as excited to go to Brainshare as I am. This will be my 3rd.

Skye, glad to hear you're going to BrainShare. I have a demo in the Wednesday keynote session, so you'll see me then. Please come up and say hi if you see me after that.
