    I had a lot of fun roaming around VMworld 2015 with my iRig Mic, with a strategically placed logo sticker. It did a great job at keeping out the ambient noise that is typical at such conferences, with the biggest benefits seen at the various VMworld 2015 Solutions booths. You'll see me visit many unprepared folks, as I pretended to be a real interviewer. What could go wrong? It's extra fun for me to visit the companies I've never heard off, hearing about cool stuff. To be fair, I did have a blogger badge on, and always politely asked first, just before rolling the camera. Noticed later in my hotel room that using Camtasia to edit MOV files under Windows is non-trivial, so for the rest of the week, I wound up uploading most of these straight from my iPhone 6 Plus minutes after recording, usually completely unedited.

    Here's all the videos I have ready for you now, in chronological order.*

    *I had an issue with the Supermicro overview video, which seems to be a total loss, unfortunately. Note that I'm also working on a video of my visit to Intel's booth to discuss SSDs.
