Tech Nerd Awakening
The first time that I visited Las Vegas was in the fall of 1997 as a fledgling technical editor for Ziff-Davis' ill-fated ComputerLife Magazine. Here it is 2009 and many Comdex(s) and God knows how many CES(s) later and I'm still making my perennial journeys to this Godforsaken place. Now, don't get me wrong, I love technology and gadgets as much as the next nerd but it's not like that's the only shit that gets me going.
So...after more than 10 years of coming to Vegas and having to watch fat guys in free t-shirts ogle booth babes, words can't describe how excited I was to attend PROJECT Las Vegas. I came to Las Vegas for DICE Summit, a veritable meeting of the minds of gaming industry decision makers and was subsequently waylaid by Kati Kim of doe san francisco. Kati needed someone to take photographs of her PROJECT Las Vegas experience and wanting to see a different side of Vegas I jumped at the chance.
After attending Comdex and CES for so many years I was blown away when we walked into the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. Aside, from all of the horribly obnoxious hipster guys (of which I've been accused of being on many occasions) I have never seen so many well dressed, gorgeous women in my life. OK, so far so good.
So, passes in hand, Kati and I entered the show and a good time was had by all. To see the photos that we took of the show, check out Kati's photo essay detailing her experience at PROJECT.
