RUC2004 - Day 1 - Key Note
I feel like I'm at a rock concert here, I am sitting in the third row, the music is pumping the lights are flying everywhere, and there are too giant video monitors playing abstract video. Actually my first impression when I came in, is that this was the room back in late 70's that the girl with the hammer came from, to go smash the screen in the room full of grey people. This is definitely a cultural 180 for the company, but obviously that has been happening for years. What is really great is that the video displays that have crazy stuff on them are in fact largely made up of clips from the open sequence to the movie Contact. Oh lights are dimming, its time for the main show, I wonder what instrument the key note plays?
