Expo Entrance

I arrived very early this morning only to see the rain I was so desperately hoping would not fall. Being San Francisco, I knew that was a pipe dream, but sometimes you just have to root for the impossible.

I made the rounds in the afternoon. Seems that there was a bit of news about Mr. Jobs that both perked people up and annoyed them just a bit.

Good for Steve for taking some time off. He can get healthy now in relative peace and quiet. Honestly, I don’t know why he was forced into saying something. I mean, I know why, but I just don’t understand human nature. Why can’t people just leave it alone?

I picked up my badge and I have to tell you, it was a bit weird to not go into the hall to set up the booth. That’s because we did not rent a booth this time. We thought long and hard about it, but in the end the expense just isn’t worth the return this year. Trade shows are just not what the used to be. Before you could think about breaking even or maybe even making a bit of money. Now, you really don’t have a chance. This is probably why Apple pulled out of all tradeshows. Too much money, not enough return. It’s a shame, really, but understandable.

So I am here to represent Nisus and to do all of the talking. That should scare plenty of folks in the office, I would think. Plus, it will be fun to see all of the new stuff. That is, if there is any new stuff.

We will see soon enough.
