Okay, most folks know I've spent the last 4 years involved with OpenStack and have been attending summits since Boston. This is the first time however I've been overwhelmed with the number of other folks attending the summit and we aren't even there yet.
I'm at 36,000 feet over NW USA headed to Vancouver from Denver on United UA 323. By sight alone, I've identified 10 different companies sending folks to OpenStack (and I'm sure there are many more companies represented on the flight that I don't know.) About 30 folks that I know (or at least know of) are on this very flight for a week of design, operations notes exchange, and marketing. WOW. I'm expecting more than 6,000 folks in YVR this week--maybe 7-8K.
