Fine Dining in San Francisco

We had an amazing dinner at Gary Danko’s, located near Fisherman’s Wharf in SF. A must dining destination next time I’m in SF. Deciding the forego the Billy Joel concert, we took a cab ride to the downtown SF hotel, Clift, buying a table there and finishing a large bottle of Grey Goose vodka and Moet Chandon champagne. We would have gone on further, were it not for the club’s closing at 2 am (privately, I was relieved it did). […]

Greetings from OracleWorld!

Greetings from Oracle OpenWorld in SF. Well…the weather’s been great all in all. There are swarms of Oracle attendees here! Here, there, everywhere. The conference attendees’ have taken over downtown SF, which is remarkably clean and has a very good feel to it. The dining experiences so far are pricey but on the disappointing side.

Miro’s Eliot Colon was featured in IT Week on Sept 17, 2007 (UK edition).

IAITAM Here I Come….

Tomorrow I travel to Palm Springs, CA to attend the 5th annual IAITAM conference. (IAITAM is the acronym for International Association of IT Asset Managers). The folks at IAITAM are a good bunch. In my view they’ve assembled a good team of professionals. I’m excited to attend –and speak- at this conference. My topic will cover ‘Smarter Oracle Software Licensing’ and one of my key themes will be to discuss Oracle compliance. What I like about IAITAM is their focus […]
