Booth Fire Shuts Down Flash Memory Summit Show Floor

Holy moly!

Update 2, 8/9/17, 10:35am PT: The FMS show floor is closed and will not re-open during the event. The official update is as follows: "The Exhibit Hall is closed for FMS2017 per the order of the Fire Marshall." We still don't know what caused the fire that shut the whole place down. Companies are still trying to hold meetings and briefings. The report from our man on the ground is that it's a bit chaotic. People are trying to meet in hotel rooms next door to the conference center, but there are only so many of those available.
