This year's Design Show attendees are going "back to school" during the
Gadget Freak Workshop running in the Design News booth (#2811). Those attendees

You can also vote on the Gadget Freak of the year with one voter coming away
with a $500 prize courtesy of Gadget Freak sponsor Allied Electronics.Go to http://www.dnsurvey.com and vote today!
