Since when has the OGS been about Press?

I've seen this comment in a few blog posts recently, and I have to ask, since when has the OGS been about Press?  People do realise that the press get 1 on 1 briefings at Connect, and they can be briefed throughout the year if they want to by making a simple phone call to IBM.  How about the customers that paid money to be at the event, shouldn't the whole show be about them?  Without customers, believe me, the press won't give you 2 minutes.  Personally I think Connects issue is that IBM doesn't know who the customer is, or what type of person is sitting in the audience.


How much fun do we have at the Nerd Girls Great Geek Challenge?

I think this photo taken by Andy Donaldson pretty much captures it.
