Nat'l Asssoc. of Broadcasters (NAB) '08

Here in the Northwest the snow is melting, the sky is blue—spring is right around the corner. And with spring, thoughts always turn toward….NAB.

Will you be there? :)

(Hey, how come when I try to type simply "NAB '08" in the title it goes lower case on me?)

Hmm…should I have just asked, “Who here is going to NAB?” or are folks waiting longer than in years past to decide?

Sorry if I jumped the gun. I had an email chat with Rob L. a few days ago and got all excited about going to see some old pals again.

I'm going, got my flight and hotel all set.
Looking forward to this year.
I have an interesting story about last year's trip.
I get there get off the plane 10 am vegas time, and I've got something like 20 messages.

So I'm standing there just off the jet way, and I find out our adoption went through, and oh by the way she's due to deliver that saturday...so low and behold I turn to the agent and the gate, explain the story and turn around and get on a flight the next day to go home.

So therefore I'm actually looking forward to attending the show this year.

Gotta tell you NAB will never be the same.

You know what's funny about that is I was there that 1 night, played roulette and won $400.

I'm sure I'll give it back this year.

That is a cool story, Mark. Hope you get to the convention center this time around. As for gambling, I stink at it, so I just give $5 to Mike and he wins for me. :)

Dylan, I’ll feel better when that 1% comes in. Gotta have my pool mate! This year I’m using sunscreen….if there’s sun!

I am down to 50% chance of going. I have not missed one NAB since 2000, however with both Avid & Apple not exhibiting I'm not sure. Last NAB had some interesting releases Panasonic 500 and Sony's XDcamex, what are they going to release this year, not much i'm afraid. If I do go it will be for 2 days maxs.

Seven consecutive years—wow. What about the parties, I mean, networking? That alone can make the trip worthwhile! :)

It's all about the parties and social networking for me anymore (every NAB since 1996; just a lightweight).

Which reminds me -- David -- if you have only two days, make it Monday and Tuesday!

Got you beat, EIGHT YEARS in a row. 1st year drove up from Phoenix arrived at convention center blew my mind away (was a student at the time and felt like a kid in a candy store) saw everything then drove home only to plow into a coyote at 70 mph. Since then I stay a few days and not try to do a 24 hour marathon.
Parties, friends and hey its Vegas .
