Review: Digicel Electronics Expo 2009

I went to the Digicel Electronics Expo held at the Hilton Kingston on Saturday. While I didn’t expect to see any alien technology, I was hoping for a little more than the usual suspects (flat screen TVs, game consoles and car stereo equipment). I was a little disappointed because I can see these things on any given day if I visit the plazas. I questioned the organizer’s decision to include an insurance company, car dealer, day spa and credit union (Globe, New Line, Adam & Eve and COK) as exhibitors at an electronics expo. I also thought the legion of scantily clad twelve year old promotion girls was inappropriate. I found the surveillance (IP cameras) and vehicle tracking product offerings from Digiview Security Systems particularly interesting. Entertainment included body painting, a magician, live shows and performances. The only thing missing was the cotton candy. This marriage of school fair and electronics expo was well promoted and well attended. Sadly, It would’ve only been worthwhile for techies if they brought along their entire family.

i suspect it came down to deciding that it was better to secure whatever sponsors they could and let "quality of content" suffer.

@Ann:
..and SUFFER it did! They obviously were not concerned about the quality of the show, just the quantity of attendees.

@Adrian:
This isn't my first time, but it's quite possibly my last. I could easily find 400 other uses for the $400 admission fee.

With that experience, you have a better chance in landing a permanent job in a
bigger hospital. You become an educator to your patients and
have the daunting task of being sure they receive all the support and preparation
they require to return home. A recovering therapist would be more capable of role modeling how to stay
clean and sober.

My developer is trying to convince me to move to .
net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on
several websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all
my wordpress content into it? Any help would
be really appreciated!

I usually do not write many comments, but i did some searching and wound up here "Review: Digicel Electronics Expo 2009".
And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it just me or does it look like a few of these remarks look like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
