Dreamforce street scene and in the hall

Interesting how many vendors who compete with Salesforce are drawn to do something at Dreamforce.  Most that I have spoken with figure that the thirty thousand people who descended on San Francisco are too big a target to miss.  I can understand small companies taking advantage of the situation but the big guys are all doing something too.

Oracle has a banner on a building across the street from one of the Moscone buildings proclaiming Oracle #1 in CRM.  SAP is having a competing analyst event in Palo Alto and the limos are running back and forth.  Microsoft issued a challenge to customers to take a look at its competing products with a full page ad in The Wall Street Journal.  They’re also working the streets with some evangelists.

Speaking of the streets, there is an aspect of camp meeting and religious revival around the Moscone with all the attendees walking around with their credentials around their necks.

Marc just came on stage.  Pictures coming soon.
