San Jose put on its holiday best for Digital Disruption
San Jose's Christmas in the Park, right outside the Convention Center housing TM Forum's Digital Disruption event, provided a festive atmosphere for evening strolls, complete with holiday lights and music, spontaneous artificial snow showers, sometimes bizarre animatronic singing animal displays, food stands with hot chocolate and funnel cakes, ice skating and even a carnival midway.
