The playback version of the sales session seems to be corrupted. It won't play.

There also seems to be no playback version of the technical session.

Thanks,

-Mike

These where copied from IBM material and you are correct there is no playback link for the Technical one, not sure why? I have hit all the links without issue? I know because of the way limitations on our internal WEB access, I cannot open these events in the office. You might want to try outside of your office.
