I have just returned from the Gartner Group Portal, Content and Collaboration Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Summit was hosted at the JW Marriott Resort and Casino. As I was unable to book a room there I stayed at the Suncoast Resort and Casino. The JW Marriott was a much better resort but the Suncoast was not bad either. See the photo I took of the Suncoast pool. The summit ran for three days and it was extremely informative. The speakers were all outstanding and the tracks for the different areas of interest were great. I have to prepare a 30 minute presentation on the summit for my employer and I may try to post part of it here. But all was not work. I managed to revisit Red Rock Canyon and made a trip to the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Las Vegas. On my previous vacation to Vegas we stayed on the strip in the New York New York Hotel and we did not have time to go to Fremont Street. The experience was all I had heard it would be and more. I took many photos and some video footage. I will blog some more on the trip but right now I have other things to do. Oh, one other note, I received my backpacking cook stove and mess kit from REI in the mail. I have not had a chance to open them up and evaluate them, but I have most of the big ticket items I need for my backpacking trips coming up this summer. Another topic for a future blog entry.
