We kicked off the second general session (day 2) today at VMworld 2013, with VMware president and COO, Carl Eschenbach, taking command of the stage in the absence of show fan favorite and former CTO of VMware, Steve Herrod. Big shoes to fill.

Carl kicked things off announcing what many of us already figured out due to the lack of wifi and seating at the event -- there are more than 22,500 people in attendance of the show this year, way up from the 1,400 that joined VMware at the very first show back in San Diego 10 years ago. Of course, Carl likes to round up, so he claims 23,000 attendees. Either way, attendance is up from the previous year and it shows. Many asked on Twitter if the show was in fact getting "too big."

With over 22,000 attendees this year it was difficult to fit everyone into the hall so we chose to spend the general session from within the comfort of the Hang Space where they were broadcasting the General Session.

First up was Robin Matlock, Chief Marketing Officer at vmware.  Robin invited up 10 Alumni members to do a top 10 countdown of the best moments at vmworld which included moments like "Smashmouth playing at Treasure Island", "Checking out the cars at the racetrack in Las Vegas" and when "vRAM became a 4-letter word".
