Day One of SAP TechEd ’07: Keynote, Community Clubhouse, Demo Jam
With Focus on the Community from Finish to Start
I’m looking at the tweets and thinking how nimble minds, imaginations, and “WII hands” helped make the Demo Jam warm-up by Craig, Ed and Dan…. magic. Can’t really describe what it was like to hear the veritable and palpable geek-gasp of admiration when the magic duo (with a video embedded in the 3D image of Craig to make it a trio) manage to bring the audience to its feet with their elegant feat and roars of admiration from the crowd.
These guys were blowing minds with their creativity. Pretty well-kept secret, too.
Check out Gali pinning Bhanu, Rich receiving certificate, lots of Demo Jam pics.
