This has been my first visit to VMworld and my first industry conference and I just wanted to say a big, public thank you to a number of people. Thank you John Troyer for arranging a conference pass for me. Thank you to my company, Virtual Clarity, for encouraging and supporting my attendance. Thank you to the hundreds of people who organised, setup and facilitated the conference. Thank you to Denmark for playing host to 7000+ geeks. Finally, thank you VMware for the content, the event, practically inventing this industry and continuing to innovate.

If, like me, you couldn’t get to Cannes this year then all is not lost. You can keep up with what’s happenning almost as it happens and still keep working. Many of the attendees are tweeting the major annoucements and updates of what they are doing. Follow them on Twitter and they’ll keep you up to date. Alan Renouf (Virtu-Al) maintains a list of VMware twits on his blog and even has a PowerShell script that will enable you to follow them all on Twitter.
