Topic 1 - Welcome back to the show. You get to talk to more communities that we do. What are some of the interesting topics, trends or people you’ve seen over the last few months of traveling and events?
Topic 2 - Jeff Bezos has apparently been hosting his own MARS event for a while now. Why did it become an Amazon event now?
Topic 3 - MARS is Machine Learning, Automation, Robotics and Space. Some of that overlaps with AWS (Machine Learning, Automation), and some is on the fringe of AWS (Space). Who was attending this event and what were the overall themes?
Sessions include Smart Cities, Drones, Voice-Controlled Apps, IoT, Alexa, AR/VR, AI/ML
Topic 4 - There seem to be a number of sessions that included venture capital. Do you see this event as being less like a normal tech event, and more like a blurring of tech and VC, because some of these topics could involve significant levels of funding (smart cities, manned space travel, etc.)?
Topic 5 - AWS recently had an event called re:Inforce, which was targeted at Security. Do you think we’re beginning to see the disaggregation of re:Invent into specialty events and sub-categories of technology interests?
