On Friday I realized the America’s Cup yacht was going to be installed at Oracle HQ over the weekend so I went home and got my GoPro camera and set it up to take a picture every 30 seconds. For some reason it shut off on Saturday morning, when the helicopter brought the hull over the building, but I still think the footage came out pretty well. Take a look and let me know what you think in the comments below.

On May 20th 2008, I arrived at work and was surprised to see an Americas cup yacht as I looked out from my office window and posted pictures to this blog. This weekend, almost 6 years later to the day, we had a new boat arrive to live on the lake and this time I was ready because preparations have been going on for a while.

However at Collaborate you can learn how one company built a custom to do this in EBusiness Suite. I’m honored to have been asked to Co-present with GE on this topic, they have done some really good work here and I’m sure it will be of great interest to others too.
I am honored to have had one of my papers selected by the Oracle Applications User Group for the Collaborate conference this year. These conferences are really good because all the content is nominated by and voted on by users and I personally think people get really good advice from their peers on how to get the most from their investment in Oracle’s products.
