It's all too much

(And no, George Harrison won't be performing in the Cow Palace next week.)

My schedule is rapidly filling up. For example, there's a good chance that I'll miss the Sunday Night Live event because of a get-together meeting with someone from Oracle on Sunday evening.

And some people who didn't have plans now have plans. See Securosis:

It’s a bit last minute, but I’ll be out in San Francisco next week for a panel at Oracle OpenWorld.

I’m still working on my plans, but the panel is on Wednesday the 14th. I’m trying to decide how long to stay....

How about deciding WHERE to stay. Sacramento is a possibility.

And some people who don't have plans, and won't have plans, can attend anyway:

For those unable to attend the show in-person, Oracle OpenWorld Online will offer live streaming video of the conference keynote speeches.

Meanwhile, Quest Software must think that Moscone Center is a little closer to the bay:

Quest Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: QSFT) announced today that it will be docked at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco, Nov. 11-15.

Incidentally, that item ran as-is at You can see that it was heavily edited (not). Who says that press releases are dead? Forbes goes for'em.

And people go for Oracle OpenWorld. The locals are musing on the disruption:

Howard Street will again be closed for 9 days between 3rd and 4th Streets from November 8th through 17th to accommodate the conference. Why does the city put up with this? The Oracle conference, with over 45,000 attendees, pumps $80 million into the local economy.
