Last year's Cloud Expo event didn't have any booth babes. Michael Steinhart chalked it up to the very slow economic recovery and to the babes' relative uselessness. "This is a show for business professionals, I thought, not consumers. There's no need for that kind of base misogyny here," he writes. But this year, the booth babes are back, including a pair of spokesmodels in tight tops and short shorts. Is this the sign of a company's good fortune -- they have money to spend on such things -- or a cluelessness on the part of their marketing departments?
