Macworld Expo SF 2009

I went to this year’s Macworld Expo in San Francisco with low expectations. None of the Apple hardware or software announcements were things I had been waiting for. Not to downplay them, of course. I’m simply not a large laptop user, for example. While I do use applications from iLife and iWork, I do not […]

Macworld Expo 2008

It’s that time of the year for another Macworld convention in San Francisco. The Moscone South and West arrangement was confusing, though, with many visitors (such as ourselves) going between the two, trying to find registration and/or not realizing that both buildings contained exhibitors. Played with the MacBook Air. Oh, my, it felt thinner than […]

Alternative Press Expo 2007

I hopped onto the train, braved the spring training crowds, and met up with Kathleen, Zed, and K’s friends Scott and Liz at the Alternative Press Expo (APE) this year. An initial reconnaisance yielded a huge stack of business cards and brochures. I ended up purchasing from less than a quarter of those creators. While […]

WonderCon 2007

It has been five years since I last attended a comic book convention. Last Sunday I broke that spell of inactivity, and attended WonderCon in San Francisco with Kathleen.

Macworld Expo 2007 coming soon

The annual MacWorld Expo San Francisco will take place next week. Unfortunately, I think my Perusal-Research List is pretty much the same as last year’s. It’s unfortunate because I have yet to find these items: Car stereo integration for the iPod at a reasonable cost. I’ve never liked FM transmitters, and the tape player is […]

Alternative Press Expo 1999

I went to the 6th annual Alternative Press Expo (APE), but unlike the previous year I spent only one day there. There were a couple factors: (1) Getting over Bronchitis from Hell and (2) I had already seen so many of the creators the previous year that I walked through the tables more quickly. Had […]

Alternative Press Expo 1998

I rarely go to conventions, but I recently went to the Alternative Press Expo (APE V) in San José. Exciting and draining to both my system and pocketbook. If possible, will be there again next year. Now I have a pile of books to plow through; a couple already made it to my favorites list, […]
