Cisco Live Photos: Dress for Success in a Company Onesie

The technology was hot but the temperatures were hotter in Las Vegas for the recent Cisco Live 2017 conference.

A few days before the conference began, the city tied its record for the highest temperature ever recorded and it barely cooled down for the conference.

Fortunately, air conditioning is a thing and the only times I had to go outside were the brief trips from airport to taxi to hotel and back again.

While not researching and writing articles, I looked around the conference and abused Twitter. Here's some of what I saw and what I had to say about it.

The company store on the show floor sold logo gear, including shirts, jackets, hats -- and this baby onesie. On seeing it, I died from the cute.

Re: Nice virtual tour! Me, too! Las Vegas is one of the sunniest places on the planet. I’ve never been there. But it’s never been on my list of places I want to go either. Too hot for my liking. I could never be out with so much sun all the time. Living in a place like Vegas is out of the question for me.

Re: Nice virtual tour! It is amazing how some folks can take living in a desert environment although the glitz and glamor that may have attracted them to the spot to begin with, would seem to wear off vor me. I'll stay out of the desert in summertime though.

Re: Seasons Looks like a good time for all on the off minutes. Walking energy, and pork with real pork, what more could one ask for in record setting high temperatures in Vegas?

Smart kinetic tiles How do you electrify schools in Nepal by walking on smart kinetic tiles in Las Vegas?

Nice virtual tour! Nice pictures, Mitch. I always wonder how people who live in Las Vegas survive the summer. But you didn’t wear the crown at the Game of Thrones themed set! Pork: It was to let vegetarians and vegans know pulled pork contains meat. ;) How was that chocolate with bacon-flavored bits and potato chips like? And I thought chocolate with pepper and spices was adventurous enough.

Seasons This is why I prefer Vegas in the fall or winter. It's just too hot otherwise, and I am often stuck inside. Sure, for a lot of people that is refuge. However, it seems unhealthy to me to stay inside for days upon end.
