Your plane to New Orleans … it’s way down yonder by the bend in that little stream, below sea level, so pack appropriately. If you go tomorrow, take in the last of the Jazz Festival and hope you find a place to eat. — On Sunday, stuff starts. Cool stuff. I don’t know if you can sneak onto the floor to see "Cable’s Broadband Home," but you can take in two great Sunday general sessions. First is CTAM with Char Beales moderating a panel of Maggie Bellville, Sean Bratches, Michael Collete and Pat Esser talking about that "Home" and all it does in the way of services we can sell. Following that, the SCTE’s John Clark moderates a panel on how it works and previews CableNET with Chris Bowick, Dave Fellows, Yvette Gordon-Kanouff, Mike LaJoie and Tony Werner (with Euro-accent now?). WICT has a conversation with some great folks at 3:30, featuring Benita Fitzgerald Mosley, Kay Koplovitz, Susan Packard, Rori Peters, Robin Sangston, Susan Scott and June Travis. — If you want to crash a party and get free booze, sneak into NCTA’s media reception that afternoon at the Broadband Home. — Sunday evening brings the annual black tie Pioneers’ Dinner at the Sheraton. We’ll be welcoming a great new class of Pioneers! I’ll see some of you there…and at Court TV’s "Like Totally Awesome 80s Party" at Ampersand later; 80mln subs and counting. — Hard-partying techies can forego a few minutes’ sleep and head straight to the Convention Center (room 220) Mon for CT’s VoIP breakfast (no way you’ll snooze through that) http://www.broadband-pbimedia.com/breakfast.htm; or if you’re a CablePAC folk (and you SHOULD be), you know already where to go for breakfast Mon. – PSM
