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

Distracted By America's Cup Racing

The question most often heard during Oracle OpenWorld was, "Did we win?"

And "yes" was the most often heard answer.

Oracle Team USA trailed the New Zealand team 8-1 as of Wednesday, Sept. 18, but then won eight races in a row to win the cup on Wednesday, Sept. 25.

Video screens set up around the conference venue helped distract attendees who might otherwise focus on learning about Oracle technology.

The race also distracted Ellison, who skipped his Tuesday afternoon keynote to attend it.
