I can't remember how many EMC Worlds I've been to over the years. These days, I don't pay much attention to the metrics: number of attendees, number of sessions, etc.
I'm far more interested in the soft side -- the discussions, the concerns, what is getting people excited, etc.
For me, it's not just a big technology event -- it's more of a tribal gathering.
So, if EMC World is a tribal gathering -- how is the tribe doing?
And I can safely report -- the tribe is quite strong.
