This time last year I was in Barcelona. There I viewed an exhibit on the ICSID Conference held in Ibiza, Spain in October 1971. One of the features of the conference was the Instant City, a giant inflatable structure designed to house students attending the conference. The structure was only used for 3 days. I was impressed by the entire exhibit, and particularly the thought that came out of it, "Utopia is possible."
Then tonight on Howard Street in San Francisco, I saw another inflatable "instant city" rising. An auspicious beginning for Dreamforce 2013.
