Well, another Cisco Live has come and passed. And again, it was a great time with the tweeps (twitter people for the unknowing).
Again this year I was astounded by the huge sense of community and togetherness that comes when geeks let their flags fly. I think the only session I made was the Cisco Champions radio, but that session was so much fun.

I think what I like best about #CLUS is the ability to have an intelligent conversation almost anywhere. Sitting around the Social Media Routed Bridge, Lunch, Dinner…everywhere.
Wednesday evening comes to mind, where a group of us were sitting in a cigar shop after the CAE, and talked to a voice engineer, CCIE candidate about why he should be on twitter! The best part of this, was when Renee joined in and explained how it helped Aaron study. Growing the community, getting people involved, helping each other, THAT is what it is about!
Or Thursday evening sitting in the lobby of the Hilton talking about SDN and wireless enjoying the “hometown gift” that Scott Morris brought with him.
Getting to meet the greatest people EVAR! like:
John Schreiner Capt USMC @jschrein
Carole Reece @cwreese
and many many more.
as well as just hanging around the best people in the world!
Some parting questions. If you didn’t enjoy #CLUS2014, why? What can you do next year to make it more enjoyable?
If you’re not part of the community, why? Why are you not participating, sharing, and growing with the all of us?
Lesson learned? When you need a little bit of luck, kiss a unicorn!
