The people at Etel

One of the more amazing things about Etel were the people there.  I had grand plans to attend a series of different talks, but instead spent most of the show meeting with people over coffee, in and around the show.  Surj and his team did a terrific job of bringing together a who’s who of the “emerging telecommunications” industry.

Here’s a few of the photographs I shot.  You can find more from me and others organized under the flickr tag etel.

    I definitely agree with Alec. In my 25 years of going to technical conferences and exhibitions, this was definitely the best. Etel brought together an unusually exciting group of thought provoking people. Unfortunately I had to miss the bloggers dinner due to an early departure, but I am sure it was just as interesting!

    I wish I could have gone. On another note, is it just me or is there not a single large vendor on the VON Spring tradeshow floor? Where are Cisco and AlcaLu and Tellabs and Ericcson? Did I miss something?

    This was my first ETel, and I found the quality of the talks — and the people to attended them — to be absolutely outstanding.

    Alec, Couldn't have said it better. Outstanding event.
    Thanks for posting your pics (I'll have to do the same soon.)
