I’m back nearly a week after Dreamforce 11 (and I can hear again–thank you Metallica). I was worried that I had become drunk and enraptured, and was no longer objective. Like Odysseus wanting to see and hear the Scylla and Charybdis, I made sure that I lashed myself to the mast and kept my team at an objective distance. I did, in fact, hear the nymphs (and old guys with loud guitars) singing… and it was good.
Now, with time and distance, I am still convinced that the offerings that salesforce.com has for “the social enterprise” are markedly valuable for the next phase of development in the online service offerings I’m developing. So, all in all, heard the siren’s song and have the opportunity to continue the odyssey.
