On my way to CEDIA and I am wearing socks….

September 5th, 2007

Apparently, Clint gave me “press status” for this weekend (insert laugh here). To date, I have received 97 emails from various venders. I have been invited to cocktail parties, classes (yawn), tours, lunches, parties, appointments, etc. I am overwhelmed and I am still in my hometown airport! All I know is that within 24 hours I will be in what has been described as a vast convention hall filled with gear and geeks and all sorts of madness. And I am excited about it! (What has happened to me? The dark side is winning…)

My favorite press email came from Snap AV. The subject line read, “Dina, Are you wearing socks to CEDIA?” Yes, I agree. That does seem to be a bit personal, but at least they didn’t ask about undergarments, so I read on. The email reads, “When you visit us at CEDIA, please be sure to wear socks…because we plan on KNOCKING THEM OFF.” Well, all I have to say about that is, a) it is the only email I actually read start to finish. (They even have a “Sock-Knocking Strategy,” by the way.) And b) I actually packed socks! (I was afraid that if I went sockless, I might lose another piece of clothing, which just sounds dangerous and very unprofessional.) So, I will be heading to Booth #594, Sound Room #18 and I will report back. Will I still be wearing my socks? We shall see…

PS Just a thought that frightens me: If Snap AV is Booth #594 could that possibly mean there are at least 594 booths there???? Help me…

    guess what?!?!?

    i was just taking carpool and listening to the wall street journal report news (because there is nothing like throwing a little “i heard at the wall street journal that such and such” because people then think you READ the w.s.j.). anyhoo, they were talking about CEDIA and i knew i knew that word from somewhere and it wasn’t yesterdays oprah show…

    they had a woman reporting some of the cool things there. so dina, if you run into the other woman there, her name is jessica.

    find out about the media smart tv because jessica mentioned that you could get your snapfish photos on it and you KNOW that we both have lots of snapfish photos to look at. …
