AOTA cocktail party

Share this article:
After a long day of talking about consumer trust and security, the AOTA cocktail had people loosening up. Though it is not a big show on attendees, maybe 200 people, the room filled up with tech people eating sushi and oysters and washing it all down with wine. The band played,  the AOTA team got up on stage and  we all clapped. I think I missed why. I was talking to David Daniels of Jupiter, who sits on the AOTA board and was wondering if he was supposed to go up front or not. Not too worried, he just told me how great everyone up on the stage is.
