New York: Digital Life @ Jacob Javits Center

So my bride and daughter headed off on a shopping adventure today and my little guy and I headed over to the Javits convention center to check out ZDNet’s Digital Life show. To me it was lame…to Alex it was a *huge* hit.

It was crowded and primarily video games. I’d seen just about everything else before in multiple venues (e.g., CES in January) and have been at dozens of trade events and shows in my life that were hundreds of times more exciting.

But today I saw the show through Alex’s eyes. He thought it was *way cool* and it was fun to watch him stand in line (some for 20 minutes or more) to play a game, put on 3D goggles to try ’em out, and box like Jackie Chan in a fun exercise game series.

I often realize that it’s tougher and tougher for vendors to wow people…what with sites like Engadget and Gizmodo all the rage and showing sneak previews of gadgets that won’t ship for some time.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
