Dell World: Chrome Books, Foosball Tables, Hacktivist and Michael Dell.

Yesterday was my 2nd day at Dell World and I spent a lot of to time talking to some really smart people about the future of the company.

One of the coolest things I did was get some hands on time with Dell’s new ChromeBook the will come out next year.

I also spent some time walking around the expo until the live music got to migraine inducing level and I had to leave.  In a blog post for I asked if they were really going to be the world’s biggest startup, I am not sure yet but they do have Foosball tables.

Someone will have to explain to me what “Out-Connect the Hacktivists” means.

I also got a chance to talk to Michael Dell (or M.C. MD as I like to call him, Please dont tell him.)


Dell World: Capitol Visit and #vBBQ

Yesterday was my first full day in Austin.  I took some time early in the day to walk to the Capitol and discuss some security related issues with a  friend of mine who works there.

In the evening I was lucky enough to hop on the Dell DP bus and attend the #vBBQ at the Salt Lick in Driftwood.

Scott Hanson (who works for Cisco?!) did a great job putting this together:
(Small Rant: The fact that the #vBBQ isnt an “official” Dell World event is crazy!)

I dont think you are allowed to go to the Salt Lick without posting food porn:

Over all it was a great day at Dell World hanging out with old and new friends.  I am really looking forward to the rest of the week!

I will be talking part in this Dell Security Think Tank on the 17th of September.
