Even though I have not had time to shoot craps yet, I've had a great couple of days in Vegas at Ariba LIVE. The only downside is that my fingers are numb from typing some 35 pages of notes from the various sessions. Given the sheer amount of great material that I have to work with, I've decided to continue my blog coverage on the LIVE event for the rest of this week and part of next. So even after tomorrow (when the event ends), check back often for further dispatches and updates as I continue to turn my notes into stories and analysis. Also, keep an eye out in the next day or so for a guest post from David Bush on Spend Matters, summarizing his experience at ISM, which unfortunately I could not make it to this week.
