I’m in Orlando for the next few days for Sybase TechWave. It’s been pretty good so far. The coolest part was driving by this building and realizing it was my hotel. They basically have a four-acre jungle under glass inside the hotel, with the rooms overlooking it. There is real water, real alligators, and everything. At night they play nighttime sounds (frogs, crickets, etc) over hidden speakers. The place is crazy. You can sort of get the full effect in this picture (during the day). I’m staying in the “Everglades” section which looks like this. The place is unfortunately named the Gaylord Palms Resort.
