IBM Connect 2014 By the Numbers

Here is a quick look back at IBM Connect 2014 by the numbers


I felt like I did not take that many pictures this year, as I left the big camera behind most of the time and stuck with my phone, at the end of the week I somehow ended up with  2251 pictures between my phone and camera.

Here is my Flickr Collection for IBM Connect 2014


Everyone knows you walk, and walk, and walk at IBM Connect here were my Steps per day as tracked by my Fitbit One

When this slide was shown on screen at the Closing General Session more than one person remarked “and that was just Mitch”

It wasn’t all me, but I guess I did my fair share of tweeting with 459 tweets over five days

Ice Cream

It was suggested to me that no numerical wrap up of IBM Connect would be complete with out a total on Ice Cream consumption.   I can’t put an exact total on it but I can tell you that Chris Whisonant and I (along with various others) visited Beaches and Cream for Ice Cream at least 5 times during IBM Connect.

Much to Chris’s disappointment we did not order the Kitchen Sink

      I think everyone on the bus (at 5:15 AM) really appreciated you and I responding loudly with “A Whole Can” when they played that vidoe… hey it was the Magical Express and we made it all the more magical

    Oh yes, that was about the most magical part of my day, though. Delta – not so much… 🙂
