Your Guide to getting the Best from Openworld '09 #OOW09

(Thanks for kind intro @paul_ricketts!)

The Keynotes were announced in a press release this morning and the main surprise was that the show kicks off on SUNday (and thats not a typo) with a joint Keynote from CEO and founder Larry Ellison and Sun Chariman Scott McNealy which should certainly cause a stir.

Throughout the week we'll be reporting live through various social media channels - including this blog, Twitter and YouTube (see below) - bringing you the news, expert analysis and a sense of the atmosphere to ensure that if you couldn't make it, you get the best of it.

The regular Red Room Bloggers like Sean Boiling, Paul Ricketts, David Centellas and others will also interpret the announcements we'll be making and giving them a local flavour and setting them in the context of our overall technology development.

Below are some of the Highlight keynotes that we think may be of interest to you. We have converted the times to Sydney so you can watch them live (or archived) via webcast:
