The decor theme at the Welcome Reception Sunday night seemed to be “art-deco tropical.”

It’s just not a tech trade show without blinking LED trinkets. This year, they were at the bottom of Brocade-themed beer glasses.

Orlando, I discovered on this trip, is not a walking city. Technically, the Orange County Convention Center was across the street from our hotel, but ‘across the street’ means something different in Orlando than Boston or New York – in this case the street was a six-lane divided highway. Also, the fact that we could see part of the OCCC from the hotel didn’t mean the conference was necessarily close by – the structure (or group of structures) is so enormous we had to be bussed a few blocks to get to the right concourse. Once inside, the scale didn’t seem to get much smaller. Needless to say, by this time Monday afternoon I was pretty jealous of the OCCC staff who were jetting around on Segways.
