Just like last year, I am now back home (after a 2 week vacation) and it's time to catch up with my feed reader and all the press coverage that was generated by #ibmconnect or IBM Connect 2013. It's interesting to compare the media coverage that was generated this year vs 2012. There's definitely a big focus on enterprise integration and c-level adoption.
So here's a couple of the highlights based on what I've found so far. I haven't included everything (I've skipped what seemed to be duplicates) but hopefully it helps you find things that you may have missed.
