David in Boston…

So last week I was in Boston, MA for a week for the EMC World convention. It was 4 days of presentations, classes, hands-on workshops, vendor exhibitions, and keynote presentations. It was very interesting and there was a lot to learn and remember. Plus, it was very cool to see Boston again.

This is a shot of a bridge at the North end of Boston we passed over every day.

Here’s the main presentation hall. All of those screens are from projectors and it seated a couple thousand. This is where all the big keynotes were given.

Shot one of the vendor exhibition hall. It was very crowded and too many vendors to check them all out.

Shot two of the exhibition hall. The semi on the right was for VMware. There were also a couple large touring buses in the room all painted up for different companies.

This was the dining hall, where we got breakfast and lunch each day.

Fenway Park from one of the suites. We saw the Red Sox play the Toronto Blue Jays (Red Sox won). It was an awesome game and made better by seeing it at Fenway.

This is a shot of the front of the convention center. I couldn’t fit the entire building in the shot.

Salem, MA city center. On Thursday after the last of the classes we drove up to Salem to check out the city. There were a lot of palm readers, incense shops, herbal remedies, and witchcraft supply shops (I couldn’t find Diagon Alley anywhere, though). Someone that lived there told us Salem gets really weird and crazy crowded at Halloween.

This was a witch museum we visited. They did a live re-enactment of part of the witch trials. It was pretty cool (and disturbing) to see that real part of history of what happened and where it occurred.

Me in front of some bell. Amy said she wouldn’t believe I was actually there unless I was in one of my pictures.

Typical assortment of shops found in the city center.

Another cool looking museum we were 10 minutes late to before they closed, so this is all we saw of it.

All in all it was a great trip, between all the new stuff to learn and apply and to see all the history everywhere you go there.
