As we head head towards the end of 2017 (already?!), I've found time to comment on some productions over the last couple of years - starting with some metrics:
Where in the world
HOW MANY TIMES
- Silicon Valley -- 27
- San Francisco -- 10
- Las Vegas -- 10
- So Cal -- 6
- Out of state: Chicago, Austin, Orlando (2), NYC, Hawaii (OK, that was a vacation), Tokyo, Seattle, Dallas and Vegas (which gets its own piece of the pie).
I find it crazy that I was in San Francisco as much as Las Vegas but that's where they fit many of the shows with five-figure attendance.
The solid tech industry - Adobe, Amazon, Cisco, Citrix, Google, Oracle, Salesforce and others - made up the bulk of productions. Here are some of the memorable ones during 2016-2017:

...and the closing party with Snoop Dogg
At Oracle's Open World in SF, we had a new tool: Robert Barcelona (The Crane Guy) provided his FlyLine Cable Cam with a Sony EX-3 camera. Lot's of great shots along the 480' line. Check out the cable cam video from the show!
