If, like me, you couldn't get to Cannes this year then all is not lost. You can keep up with what's happenning almost as it happens and still keep working. Many of the attendees are tweeting the major annoucements and updates of what they are doing. Follow them on Twitter and they'll keep you up to date.
Alan Renouf (Virtu-Al) maintains a list of VMware twits on his blog and even has a PowerShell script that will enable you to follow them all on Twitter.
