If you even glanced at my blog last week you probably noticed a slew of videos from VMworld 2011. What was a simple idea a couple years ago – give people a taste of what we were up to at the various trade shows & highlight partners – has turned into a fun and exciting part of my job. I do hope they give you a flavor of what is happening on the show floor. While I try to schedule some interviews and topics prior to the show(s), many of the ‘on the spot’ videos truly are situations where I’m like, ‘ohhh, lets shoot that – ready?’ We do a little prep work especially for the whiteboard discussions but most of the time we just briefly chat about it and go live. Many times we nail it but sometimes a hiccup happens, mostly mine, which is why I also post the video outtakes at the end. I’ve always loved bloopers, even back when Dick Clark was pretending to laugh at all the flubs of 80’s TV. We’ll be shooting again in a few weeks at Oracle OpenWorld so if you’re around, stop by and say hi. I’ll even interview you if you like.
