Internet World: there's no business in show business

Hostility suites are empty

Security for virtualized datacentres

The first day of the Internet World 2000 show has been a bit of a mixed bag.

The keynote speech by Microsoft UK MD Neil Holloway was a tad flat. The hall was half empty as he took to the stand to give - in effect - a hardware review of the
not-so-latest Net gadgets.

And this from a software chappie to boot. No wonder only 30 or so people bothered to hang around for the Q&As.

Elsewhere, VNU (UK contract publisher for Internet.com) has it's own palm-leafed hostility suite, although, every time we walked by, it was deserted. Hardly an oasis for the IT bigwigs attending the show.

One lassie who's been handing out leaflets all day opposite suite 1080 confirmed our suspicions.

"It's not been very busy all day," she said.

No matter. No one was anywhere near the prefab stall of Internet media luvvie mag, New Media Age either.

That's showbiz. ®
