Software, Hardware, High-Speed Sailing: 20 Scenes From Oracle OpenWorld


Not Enough Space

Oracle OpenWorld was huge this year in terms of venue. In addition to completely taking over Moscone North, South and West halls, the event also had space in multiple hotels around downtown San Francisco.

And, as shown here, Howard Street between Moscone North and Moscone South was carpeted over so that, if someone didn't know it was a road, he or she might think it was a regular plaza where attendees could eat lunch, meet and watch keynotes, such as this Monday morning one by Oracle President Mark Hurd, which was for a large part a repeat of his Sunday afternoon keynote to channel partners.
