I’m Rosie’s Dad (on the power of video)

I’m at a conference in Las Vegas visiting with the HP workstation group. Great folks, nice hotel, fun meetings, Cirque de Soleil tonight. So all the workstation VPs make their sweep of the dining room last night, saying hello, getting some face time with the various press folks. Some kind of know me; I’ve reviewed plenty of HP workstations and have been to several events. But you can tell from the looks on their faces that they just can’t place me. So I say, “Jan Ozer, Streaming Media Magazine,” and they say, “of course,” but the look stays in their eyes.

Then I say, “I’m Rosie’s dad,” and their eyes immediately light up in recognition, and they smile and say, “yes, of course, Rosie’s really going to love playing with the workstation that we’ll be showing you tomorrow.”
