This has taken longer to get out than expected. The reason was a bad chorizo burrito a week ago. Still, it is out, finally! SC22 was more than 3x the size of the SC21, and the show floor was back to being vibrant. Vendors returned, hardware was out, and it was an exciting place to be once again. As such, I put together my notes into a 17-minute video where we blast through an array of topics. We did not catch everything, but hopefully, this will give folks a good overview if they missed it.

Here is the new video:
Some things look much better in the video version, such as cutting a liquid cooling line with an axe to see how the solution prevents leakage. We have articles either published or coming for most of this content.
For those who want to skip around and see all that is covered:

That is a huge list, but it gives some idea of the pace at the show.
SC22 felt very different from previous shows. My pace was much higher than normal, and that has led to our coverage taking longer. It is something to fix for next year. Still, we saw so many cool things that I wanted to share with the STH community I figured it was time to start that process.
