Down for the count


TechSec kicked off with a exhibitor's reception last night and the set-up on the show floor continued for hours. Look at this guy shining the HID sign! Talk about an attention to detail.

I also continued to battle my wretched cold and after I made it all the way through the reception and to dinner, it reared its ugliest head and I was back at the hotel in bed before my group ordered main courses (my apologies again to all there).

This event has a history of causing me physical pain — two years ago, my face swelled up from an undetermined culprit, which is where the saying "TechSec makes me swell" comes from. You'll have to attend next year to see what ailment hits me then.

Dave Bunzel opens up the event this morning. I'll have video of that along with the other educational sessions later on today.
