Photos from ISC’09

The thing I love about ISC is that they start the thing off with a big beer party in the exhibit hall. As a result, the Sun Booth was standing room only on opening night.

The band was rocking out at the opening reception. Listen to the Sax player jamming away.

About Rich
FlexRex began his life as a cartoon character I created a Sun Microsystems. As the world's first "fictional blogger," he appeared in numerous parody films that made fun of the whole work-from-home thing. Somewhere along the line, the Sun IT department adopted FlexRex as their spokesman in a half-dozen security awareness films for employees. So when I left Sun recently, I started FlexRex Communications, a Marketing company in Portland, Oregon.
