Comic-Con Photos: That's Not a Costume. It's Actually a Cat

Mitch Wagner

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.

Oh, Lynda Carter, you've changed.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
