Dude Plays 'Bohemian Rhapsody' on Weird Homemade Marimba at Dell EMC World

LAS VEGAS -- Dell EMC World -- Conference attendees were serenaded this week by what sounded like a marimba playing "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Along with several thousand of my closest friends, I came across this guy as we exited Monday's keynote address, featuring Dell CEO and chairman Michael Dell. (See Michael Dell: We're Seeing Public Cloud 'Boomerang Effect'.)

About the Author(s)

Mitch Wagner

Executive Editor, Light Reading

San Diego-based Mitch Wagner is many things. As well as being "our guy" on the West Coast (of the US, not Scotland, or anywhere else with indifferent meteorological conditions), he's a husband (to his wife), dissatisfied Democrat, American (so he could be President some day), nonobservant Jew, and science fiction fan. Not necessarily in that order.

He's also one half of a special duo, along with Minnie, who is the co-habitor of the West Coast Bureau and Light Reading's primary chewer of sticks, though she is not the only one on the team who regularly munches on bark.

Wagner, whose previous positions include Editor-in-Chief at Internet Evolution and Executive Editor at InformationWeek, will be responsible for tracking and reporting on developments in Silicon Valley and other US West Coast hotspots of communications technology innovation.

Beats: Software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), IP networking, and colored foods (such as 'green rice').
