I went on Monday and to last nights SourceFire shindig
at the "W" hotel (I wound up paying $12 per hour for
parking at the hotel...oh well live and learn)

Michael, you are correct, there was none, other than
silicondefense showing a snort based product.  I dont
count Sun in this as 4 of the 5 sales guys I spoke
with had no idea what a snort rule was let alone

The show however overall was very good.  I even
enjoyed talking with the guys from Recourse (Symantec)
who had one of the developers of Mantrap giving a demo
of the system, Microsoft had a good speaker later in
the day in their booth talking about group policy
issues (very informative)

There were a lot of "fob" companies there, each trying
to out do the other in pricing it seemed for the same
product :)

Overall, I would go again (this was a first RSA Conf
for me).  There were more people than I expected at
the Expo (attendees)

I am going to Networld/Interop on the 29th, so I am
hoping to get a better understanding of what I need to
do for my organization.
