Superheroes, supervillains and swarms of fans invaded San Diego recently for the annual Comic-Con. Among them: me, armed with my trusty cameraphone.
Comic-Con is a big party for science fiction and fantasy media fans of all types, and a place where Hollywood celebrates the latest TV and movie programming, with panel discussions featuring TV and movie stars and behind-the-camera talent, as well as previews on screen.
Many of the fans come in costume, turning San Diego's downtown Gaslamp District into Mardi Gras.
I've lived in San Diego for 20 years, and gone to Comic-Con most of those years. Some years -- like this year -- I don't get tickets, because they sell out fast. But that's OK. Plenty to see and do downtown in the Gaslamp area even if you don't go into the show itself.
By the way, what does this have to do with enterprise cloud? Nothing. We just thought you'd enjoy it.
Here's some of Comic-Con as I saw it, starting with an observation from San Diego's public transit system, the Trolley light rail.
