Alright everyone, I'm going to consolidate things and wrap up the rest of the highlights from Monday. One of the biggest surprises of the day was a presentation by Rolf Skyberg who is an eBay Disruptive Innovator. Rolf blew the audience away with a Web 2.0 presentation that took the audience from 600 AD to the present. He touched upon such things as Salton Sea Pelicans (omigod, Birds) to compare the evolution of the Web, and basic human needs to the explosion of Web 2.0. It was a 450 page slide show that kept everyone in the crowd laughing and engaged. The only thing funnier was seeing Rolf get painted blue and thrown into a wall at the Blue Man group show.
After the sessions finished, eBay hosted a beer bash. Of course the GIN team represented. After that Paypal invited everyone to board buses and drove us over to the Charles Theatre. Once there we were treated to a private showing of the Blue Man Group. After the show Paypal hosted another outing at Jillian's. Believe it or not, we actually declined and cabbed back to the hotel and worked all night.
