Max, the solution is to surf the wave of conformity. Once critical mass is achieved (50% +1?), the rest of the crowd will feel out of place and in lunch time, they will rush out to the nearest Hawaiian shirt store!
@Betajet: Mine is black with big yellow flowers. Very elegant. I'm glad to have a good opportunity to show it off :-)
I'm looking forward to seeing it. I will be wearing Hawaiian shirts throughout the conference (I wear them every day) -- and I would love to see other people wearing them throughout the conference -- but for those who have only one Hawaiian shirt (say a black one with big yellow flowers), perhaps the best time to flaunt it would be at the conference party on Tuesday afternoon (4:00pm to 5:00pm, I think).
Maybe we can have an unofficial competition to decide who is sporting the most bodacious Hawaiian shirt?
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
