Novell’s Brainshare conference is underway this week in Salt Lake City Utah. The 5000 attendees have plenty of information to absorb with the hundreds of tutorials and seminars – not to mention keynote sessions from Novell’s management such as chief executive Ron Hovsepian (pictured below).
However Novell also provides plenty of down-time opportunities from pool tables, and huge TV screens showing episodes of the US version of The Office.
Attendees can even, if they choose, wind down with a special techie version of the US game show jeopardy – where contestants have to supply the question to a given answer.
There is also the obligatory show shop resplendent with random Novell merchandise – the kind of stuff that journalists are used to getting for free but it seems that some people will actually pay for a branded base-ball cap.
