Lucky Orbitz

I just booked a flight to Vegas for the IP4IT conference, where I’m on a panel with Mr. Wikipedia Jimmy Wales, and the Orbitz waiting graphic popped up a talk bubble that said “Say hi to lady luck for me.” How nice!

On the trade show floor I met some guys from Coyote Point Systems, which has a terrible website but their products sound very interesting and are a third to a quarter the price of similar offerings from F5 or Alteon. Anyone have experience with them? « WordPress.Feedster […]
