Word here at OpenWorld has it that Oracle CEO Larry Ellison is going to make an announcement today that could be a “game changer” in what the software giant sells. Even if you’re not here at the conference, you can hear it from Ellison’s mouth right along with the rest of us. Just click over to the Keynotes section of the OpenWorld web site, click on the “Live Keynote” link under Larry’s picture, and join us. Just be sure that you have Flash Player 9 installed beforehand. The broadcast will begin around 2:30PM Pacific coast time today; it is likely that Hewlett-Packard CEO Mark Hurd will speak before Ellison.

One more thing…if you read this after Ellison’s speech, you will still probably be able to watch the broadcast, as Oracle usually keeps the speeches posted on the OpenWorld site for many weeks afterwards.
