I’m looking forward to VMworld next week, in San Francisco. Of course there will be lots of meetings. For one of those, my PA Jeri tried to organize a meeting room at a hotel near the Moscone Center. She tried the W Hotel, which informed her that VMware had banned them from renting facilities to VMware competitors. Unbelievable. I guess we’ll just have to hold the meeting in our show floor booth, which courtesy VMware and the same daft rule, is limited to a 10×10.

The ridiculous thing about this is that I thought that VMware was trying to convince us that VMworld is an industry show for virtualization. It clearly isn’t.
