Jake's Awards


I was thinking about some of the awards I would give for HostingCon.


Best Keynote: EV1

Best Session I attended: Data Center Networking (GNAX) with a close second to eQuest information on Hosted Exchange and Collaboration.

Most Expensive Booth: EV1

Most Shocking: Absense of the Planet and Godaddy from an exibit.

Coolest Exibit: FastServers

Best Party: GNAX (by far)

Best Food: Gibsons Steak near the Hotel

Coolest Giveaway: RackMountMicro Server

Strangest Thing: Seeing people I have posted with in real life contrasted with the mental picture I assigned to them.

Weird Honorable Mention: The Chicago Airport had automatic toilet seat santitary things you just wave your hand by a sensor and it applies a new sanitary plastic. God I love technology.


I encourage you all to post your awards.

I really wanted to make your session, but something else I wanted to see was going on. I would love to get a copy of your presentation and maybe we could chat some.

My powerpoint presentation was VERY undetailed. I pretty much put up a rough outline and kept the thing open to discussion and questions which actually turned out great. Lots of people were participating and the session rooms were small enough that it wasn't overwhelming trying to cater to everyone.

I'm sure I'll be back next year... you can catch it then.

I am sure if I were talking my presentation would have been the same. A large outline of discussion points. I have made a "here's and idea off the top of my head" post concerning taping of sessions and streaming them.
