67 songs on the playlist for the "Securing the Moscone Center" Oracle OpenWorld Unconference presentation

(A brief aside - I didn't think that I'd be posting any Oracle OpenWorld related-stuff until during the Appreciation Event on Wednesday night. As I often find myself saying, "I was wrong.")

This is an update on my plea to suggest biometric-related songs for a playlist that I'm assembling for my Thursday presentation at the Oracle OpenWorld Unconverence. My plea also received a link from Jake Kuramoto in the Oracle AppsLab blog.

First, some sad news - I belatedly discovered that, even if I were able to get the playlist up to over 45 tracks, I still wouldn't be able to listen to it. The ability to listen to playlists is apparently limited to paying users.

Now, the good news - as of Monday evening September 22, the playlist has 67 songs, thanks to the contributions of many, including the aforementioned Jake Kuramoto; Louise; Kirk Donnan (Creative Director at Oracle); and user F6x, who not only suggested a lot of songs, but made sure to include songs from four of the artists who will be at the Appreciation Event on Wednesday night.

So, here's the playlist as of Monday night:

The Police – Wrapped Around Your Finger
Billy Idol – Eyes Without a Face
Junior Murvin – Police and Thieves
Bob Marley & The Wailers - I Shot The Sheriff
Eminem – My Name Is
Neil Young & Crazy Horse – Welfare Mothers

By the way, there's actually a purpose to this exercise, since it illustrates both the different types of biometrics (finger, face, iris, retina, etc.) and the different applications for biometric identification, ranging from unsolve crimes to school lunches.
