I, too, regretted not making it to Design East, Jenn, especially when I saw that TDK-Lambda was giving away keyboard brushes. Giveaways are an important part of every trade show (although I do admit that traveling from Chicago to Boston to get a free keyboard brush seems extreme).

Good slide show Jennifer.  I, like Warren, was unable to go this year and I certainly regret not being there.  Could you possibly elaborate on the following:

1.)  Roughly how many US vendors in comparison to foreign vendors?

2.)  Did the attendees seem to be  US and foreign.  How was it weighted?

I have a client who has just experienced issues with intellectual property theft and would love to know the ratio. 

Many thanks.. Bob J.

Hi warren! I'm sorry - I don't know the answer to the IBM question. I'm glad you enjoyed the slideshow, though. Next time, I'll be sure to expand it to fit more stuff in for the readers who couldn't attend. Hope to see you in Boston next year!!

Your slide show was terrible!  It really made me regret not going.  I didn't need a guilt trip.  It's all your fault!

But seriously, I wish your slide show was more complete.  I really enjoyed seeing the few things you put there.  I really liked the presentations and displays.  Impressive!  Plus the freebies are always fun.

I miss the days I went to everything...,

Wow!  I was impressed witht the slide show.  I regret not being able to finagle my way in!  I was hoping someone could tell me the IBM "Can you name the ten points of product development?" that was on the sign of the IBM booth?  I Googled it, but it didn't come back with an answer.

Thanks Beth! This was a project by a TI engineer for our Gadget Freak DIY event at the show. It's a silly gadget he made using a BeagleBoard that will put a mustache on anyone - men, women, animals, even babies! Oh, and Senior VP of Content Karen Field. She was a really good sport!

Nice slide show, Jenn. The mustache camera was intriguing. What was that all about?

As you can probably  tell from this slideshow, DESIGN East was jam-packed with cool stuff -- there's just no better way to say it. If you didn't make it this year, be sure to put it on your calendar for next year -- who doesn't love Boston in the early fall? Or, get ready for DESIGN West, in San Jose, Calif., which is always bigger, and, some might say, even better!
