MacWorld east is dead. 'Tis a shame.<br><br>I'm so glad I managed to get to MWNY 2 years in a row before the change to Boston. I still have so many fond memories of the first visit. Things will never be the same.<br><br>
I went to 2 MWNY. The first was only about 2 weeks before 9/11. It was to surreal to see ground zero a year later. But, for me The early 90s MW in Boston will remain the best ones. I doubt if even MWSF is anywhere near as good as those use to be.<br><br>
I think you can attribute a LOT of the forum slow-down to Blogs. People are finding blogs about topics that interest them and then post in the comments of the articles. It's somewhat like forums in that you have ongoing conversations. The big draw is that you can find a blog on just about anything and you know that it will have exactly the topics you are looking for all the time.<br><br><br><br>CreativeGuy: For your "fix" of design software tips, tricks & commentary.

Maybe true JD but I don't read blogs unless someone post a link to it.<br><br>But for me I got tired of the head banging at MC so I go there maybe once or twice a week.<br><br>As for the MWNY Apple cited money reasons but who knows there could be something deeper then that ?<br><br>
<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>But, for me The early 90s MW in Boston will remain the best ones.<p><hr></blockquote><p>Absolutely. <br>It was so large that it took up two convention centers, Bayside Expo and the World Trade Center.<br>You would be hard pressed to think of a hardware or software company that didn't attend.<br>There were software and hardware deals galore.<br>I will always remember it and I will always miss it.<br><br>
