I went to Internet World

I went to Internet World today. It was pretty uneventful. The landscape has changed so much in the tech sector, it's amazing. Basically, there are so few Web and tech companies nowadays. Not at all like it was in '99-'00. If I were still writing about the tech industry full time, I'm sure I'd be bored.

The Streaming Media portion of Internet World looked interesting, but I got there late and didn't have time to check it out. I was about to look at some MPEG 4 delivery apps, but then my blasted cell phone started ringing. Of course I had to answer it. It was a very important call. So the lights began to flicker, and it was time to go home. So sorry I wasted my time on that Microsoft Pavilion. Other than Office for Mac OS X, why would I care about what Microsoft is doing? I could probably go back again tomorrow, but those exhibition halls take up too much of my precious time — I've got finals to study for and papers to write. Not to mention those freelance deadlines I have to keep up with. Well it's upward and onward, another day, another dollar. And I could use some dollars, I haven't seen a Benjamin in eons!
