Re: Backstage pass
" it's been impressive to watch the teams from various vendors come together with the InteropNet Team Leads (some from vendors, some consultants, and some from universities or government agencies) to build this networks."

@Curt: I think that's the perfect combination of resources that are needed to bring about innovation in any technology. The combination of academia, professionals, industry folks and agencies can cover all aspects of the development and use of a technology and can really create something remarkable.

@Sue. it's been impressive to watch the teams from various vendors come together with the InteropNet Team Leads (some from vendors, some consultants, and some from universities or government agencies) to build this networks.

While there have been some hiccups (including an early wireless LAN issue that was rather painfully detailed in last Tuesday's Hot Stage Diaries radio show), they've all been technical rather than inter-personal. I think one of the most impressive things about the entire process is the degree to which people check their egos at the door and pitch in to do what's necessary to make the network happen.

When you see the chief solutions architect from one of the larger systems integration firms racking servers, you know that things are different in the warehouse!

Curt, thanks for taking us behind the scenes so we can see details of how the InteropNet is built. I've seen the network in action (and taken the tour) at the live event many times, but the immense amount of work and expertise that goes on ahead of time is hard to imagine until you look at these visuals. It looks like everyone is working together seammlessly -- did the teams run into any snags?
