Countdown to Vegas

Chris and Stew's Excellent Adventure
Like a couple of wooden Indians, Weaver and I have been spotted on the loading dock lately, rendered utterly agog by our fancy-schmancy passes to NAB. What is NAB, you ask? Only the world's largest electronic media show, a 5 day city-state of TV geeks, evil geniuses and cyber-nerds of every description, held every year in squeaky clean Las Vegas. This time Chris Weaver, Brad Ingram and I will be among the 100 thousand some in attendance. While we're there, we'll launch a hard target search for the latest in technology, the scariest convention-goers, the most righteous freebie, plus a slow drizzle of adult beverages and casino peanuts. Look for all the ugly details to splay out on our respective blogs, and be sure to check out b-roll.net, where we'll post a series of mostly-in-focus video segments from the jam-packed floor of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Ingram SchemesAlong the way, Weaver and I hope to hook up with the always entertaining JL Watkins of Little Lost Robot fame, before crashing the scene at the tenth anniversary B-roll Bash. Of course Brad Ingram is also making the trip, but judging from this picture, the NPPA Region 6 director has his own ideas about killing time in Vegas. Stay tuned for details...

Stay away from the one armed bandits and the craps tables lest you'll be selling your cameras, computers, and return trip tickets to buy your way out. Vegas is a long way to hitchhike home to Carolina.
