It’s day two of Dreamforce 2011. Metallica rocked the gala last night, and Marc Benioff is kicking off the Platform keynote. I can see the tired, bleary eyes, but I can also see the glimmer of excitement as the keynote unfolds. Apparently, the event has been so super-charged, the video chip of Mac seems to have been zapped too. But the show must go on.
