Tech Field Day Recap: Day 2


Group pictures always take longer when you use cameras with film

The mythical HP Dirty Chai machine brings pilgrims from far and wide

iPerf is a great way to cause AP meltdown

Roundtables are great, even if they take place at square tables

AirMagnet needs a laptop with a minimum of 8 USB ports to really rock it

Do not underestimate the power of Diet Snapple Peach Iced Tea

Hands-on demos rock the party

Fountain pens hold the key to my future lottery success

The Underhill account is alive and well at Antonella’s

Picking up the Tech Field Day tab is an expensive proposition at best

And so ends another fine day of tech-y fieldness in partly cloudy California.  Good times were had by all.  New friends were made.  Old friends were rekindled.  Alcohol was consumed on occasion.  Last but not least, knowledge was disseminated and consumed by all the delegates to be digested slowly over the course of the next few days, like a fine meal of gnocchi and cannolis.

I have a lot to write about and a lot to catch up on.  Thanks to the graciousness of the crew from Wireless Tech Field Day, I have the opportunity to learn more about something that interests me and can be useful to many.  I will spend the next few weeks talking about all the things I’ve learned in the past 48 hours and hopefully giving you some insights and discussion topics.

Tom’s Take

Tech Field Day isn’t about technology, or vendors, or fine Italian dining.  It’s about people.  Meeting great people and talking about topics ranging from wireless spectrum analyzation to animated GIF manufacturing is what really makes this event so special.  If you are at all interested in being involved, get over to the Gestalt IT website and let us know.  It’s the first step into a much more connected community and the kind of comradery that makes our little industry so much fun to be involved in.
