NYC Trip, Day 5

Woke up at 6. Grabbed a shower, got dressed, went to McD for breakfast. Hailed my cab and got over to Javits. Met up with Frank and Paul Rura, and then we queued up for the Keynote. Cut in line thanks to the MGL boys. Saw Sinbad.

Keynote was a hoot; all the new product announcements were great, as was the free mouse that we all got.

Spent the rest of the day wandering the floor and picking up goodies. Was in the front row for Jason Whong eating bugs (pictures will be here later), and I had lunch with Colin & Ian.

Left around 6:10, walked over to ScreamingMedia, and then we ran to the train home. Went to the 10PM showing of X-Men. I thought it was alright, nothing terribly exciting but it was enjoyable.

Came back, talked for a little bit with Dave’s SO Dominique, and then conked out.

I realize this is all a bit terse, and that’s because I’m standing at the Internet cafe in the expo typing, and there’s a line. I’ll expand this all when I get home tomorrow.


NYC Trip, Day 4

Christ, I’m behind schedule.

Quick version: Got up, took the train in with Dave, went up to his office. Very nice place. Walked over to 24th street, went in the wrong building, then found Freeverse.

Freeverse guys are extremely cool. Everyone has this nice warped sense of humor that I get along well with. Anyhow, we spent the day making little BMPl press kits (monkey hand puppet + BMPL matches + CD), sticking stickers on Byte Me teeth, and getting boxed copies of DG ready. Left at about 5:15.

Took a cab over to the med school, and ate dinner with Dad at Shabu-Tatsu, which is a Shabu Shabu sort of place. If you don’t know what that is – they give you a huge plate of meat and veggies and noodles, and you dip it in boiling hot water to cook it. Lots of fun and very filling.

Came back to the med school, called Kate, went to sleep.


NYC Trip, Day 3

Uneventful for the most part.

Lots of game show watching in the afternoon as I waited for bus time to roll around. Took the 6:10 bus to Port Authority, and then we took the Penn Station train to Dave’s house.

Talked to Kate twice on the phone; I really wish I could talk to her more because I miss her like crazy.

More news tomorrow, I guess.
