HP Blades Tech Day 2010: Day 1

February 28th, 2010 at 2:29 AM  4 Comments

After arriving in Houston for the HP Blades Tech Day 2010 I met in the lobby with the rest of the Bloggers, IVY Worldwide Staff and Calvin from HP.  We had a couple of drinks at the hotel and then headed over to Fusion Pizza, right down the road.

The pizza and drinks were very good and during dinner I had some great discussions with @kevin_houston, @Knieriemen, @rbrambley, @kiwi_Si, @StorageNerve and @sfoskett.  We talked about everything on how to create a good podcast (Contact Greg Knieriemen if you need to know how to create one, he loves it) to the origins of ProCurve (which we still do not have a full answer).

After dinner we headed back to the hotel where John Obeto surprised us with some Nigerian Palm Wine.  I was a little hesitant after the smell but after a couple of drinks I decided it wasn’t to bad.  After a couple of glasses I decided It was probably best to call it a night before I wasn’t able to get up in the morning.

This trip was sponsored by HP.  HP paid for the travel arrangements and most meals for 10 bloggers to visit the HP Houston campus.
