A funny thing happened to me on the way to the fair. The Rockwell automation Fair that is.The Pilot comes on the intercom and says something like:
“Hi, it’s the captain here. I want to tell you that we can’t get the flaps into the right position. We need number 15 and we can only get to 14.” (or he said something like that). “We’ve tried a few times and it doesn’t want to move.”

We all agreed in our seating row that it was ‘TMI’ – Too Much Information? I think he realized that, because he then said words to the effect of:

Automation Fair begins tomorrow!
Well, this is it folks. The big day has finally arrived and Automation Fair begins tomorrow. Our intrepid team has descended on Chicago at McCormick Place West and is gearing up to show all that Cisco has to offer at booth #239!
We hope you’ve enjoyed all of the social media activity over the last two weeks.
We’ve seen our social media strategy for Automation Fair. We’ve seen Peter Granger describe both Cisco’s presence and booth. We’ve seen Mark Wylie discuss machine builders. We’ve seen Paul Didier discuss convergence. And, of course, we’ve seen Kevin Davenport tell you why you must attend Automation Fair…or die.
To make things convenient for you to follow our social media activities, we’ve created a Storify instance which will aggregate all of our content creation into one spot. So follow this link to see all of our activity as it unfolds:
See you tomorrow at booth #239!

“Chicago, Chicago, I’ll show you around, You’ll Stay Around”, sings Frank Sinatra in the Fred Fisher song ‘Chicago’ published in 1922.
Well, come to the McCormick Center in Chicago, Illinois this week (16th and 17th November 2011) and let Cisco show you around Booth #239 where we’ll show you some cool demonstrations, and talk to you about your business and technical issues and how Cisco can help.
Remember that Automation Fair is one of the largest industrial Automation Events in the world. As I mentioned in my Cisco at Rockwell Automation Fair, Chicago Illinois, 16th-17th November 2011 blog we’ll be active this week both at our own booth and also at a four way A four-way Cisco, Rockwell, Panduit and Fluke booth showing the power of a broader partnership bringing all aspects of network convergence together.

When Steve Jobs passed away on October 5th, the world focused on remembering his creativity, genius and the influence he had on our world. While this attention was well deserved, another — perhaps more influential – technology luminary passed away on October 12th. But, outside computer science circles, most people have never heard of him.
You had to do a bit of digging, but you could find some great eulogies in the news: Read More »
