I'm in Kansas City for a Ragan Conference on mobile communications and it just happens to be Tornado week in this area of the country. Last day of conference at the Sprint World HQ and the second to the last session before heading to the airport, when a buzzing over the PA was followed by warning sound and a voice telling us that a tornado warning has even issued for this area. The same announcement kept repeating every 20 seconds and was starting to get on everyone's nerves. Luckily we all had mobile devices to monitor the outside activities. BUT if you had AT&T, you were out of luck as I'm sure Sprint had AT&T signal blocking technology around the campus. It seems that a storm touched down about 12 blocks away from here and We spent about 40 minutes in the bunker. It turned out to be an interesting way to network. Did I mention I'm looking forward to going home? - Posted using BlogPress from my iPad
