My fellow Enterprise Irregular Bruno Haid excelled himself as host on Sunday in Vienna. As well giving me a great walking tour of the city, which mixed the architecture of the museum quarter , palaces, coffee shops and the art of Gustav Klimt (did every student have some of his art as posters on their wall?) and Egon Schiele, he bought dinner for the B-8. The 8 of us that were the advanced guard of bloggers attending SAP's SAPPHIRE 07 conference live in 8 different countries, and some of us met for the first time that evening, even though we've known each other for ages, and converse by e-mail on an almost daily basis.
Earlier in the day Bruno and I had lunch, coffees and chat with Charlie Wood and Prashanth Rai. The conversation ranged from mundane travel stories to the last US election, and the Iraq war. One of the major side benefits of attending a conference like this is to experience the diversity of views from an Indian, an America, an Austrian and a Brit on the rights and wrongs of the removal of Saddam Hussein.
My Flickr photo stream for the whole event is here. If you don't know Vienna, there are around 90 shots of the city, mixed in with my coverage of the conference.
