Today is the first day of the annual SIFMA show. And each year since it’s been run at the Hilton, Booth 1101 is the very first one that punters encounter following registration.

Quotron Systems (featuring George Levine at the opening)
Thomson Reuters (still ditto)
Interactive Data Corp. (sadly, not)
And in 2011, the occupant of Booth 1101 is …
Endace (I doubt it, but fingers crossed)
We respect. But, WTF?
