I’m bummed I’m not at Demo

Lots of my friends are at Demo this week but I’m not, which bums me out. I had to make a choice: go skiing in the Alps or go to Demo. I decided skiing in the Alps would be more fun, so I made my choice and now I have to live with the consequences. Hint: I made the right choice. ;-)

But, I have been watching the reports from Demo and anytime one of my friends there shows up on IM or email I ask them “what’s the coolest thing you saw today?”

So far everyone has been answering Riya, including PCWorld’s Harry McCracken.

One other thought I have about Demo is just how much stuff is coming out of the industry. If you have dozens of things coming at you to try, how do you try even more than a couple?

Getting adoption in this market is going to be very tough.

Update: Shel Israel and team at Conferenza are blogging the event. Tara Hunt is blogging too. Podtech.net is doing the official podcast from Demo. The Demo conference has a list of bloggers who are reporting from there. And, of course, TechCrunch is there.
Who is doing the best Demo blogging? And, what are you going to try because of the reports coming out of Demo?

  1. Seems like all Christopher Coulter can do is criticize. Show me what he does to advance the tech world. He just cuts and pasts his innacurate and ignorant “analysis” from one blog to the other – hoping for some kind of attention. It is so obvious that he has no information on any of these companies, dosent understand the technology or the applications for the new technologies and clearly is not interested in learing.

    IMO, his credibility = zero
