The Network World staff have published a wrap-up of VON. Lots of stuff here, including a little piece on a group of orthodox Jewish men, and the perils of being ultra-connected.
VON being a diverse show with attendees from all over the world, a group of orthodox Jewish men at the show managed to find a quite place on the exhibit floor to form a minyan, or orthodox prayer group. As the men bowed and prayed, one person in the group appeared to be thumbing a hand-held mobile communications device. One observer noted: "If you’re going to make time in your schedule for prayers, just put the Treo away."
One wonders how relevant that particular communication was at that instant.
