I love how us IT geeks are l00t whores for stuff... Every year I went to InfoSec I was like a child in a candy store named "Everything is free if you can stuff it in your pockets".
Many a stand I'd glaze over and shriek "blah blah, whatever, stuff everything you have into this backpack and I'll look at your information later"
Hurrah for freebies. Lamentably, I'm not able to make BETT this year... perhaps we need some kind of regional l00t whorage festival in which we can all line our pockets with.. er.. I mean find out useful information from companies and partake in their services.... yes.. that's what I meant.

I dont really get why people get so excited about getting, lets face it - a bag of crap from BETT each year. But I will admit that zebras, sweets and plants (?!) are a lot more imaginative than the usual rubbish
I'm not going to BETT anyway, shame because I wouldnt mind the holiday!

Unfortunately we can't get to BETT either - it's just a week too late as it falls during the first week of teaching so it's impossible.
Is there any reason why these kind of events have to be held in London rather than somewhere more central, btw?

The cynical reason it is in London is that is where the politicians, the qangos, the academics and big resellers want it and is a free trip to the shops for some too.
In reality it is because it has decent transport links, is good for international visitors to get too and is a good chance to get to the shops!

I remember when all of Mandy's emails used to be in pink font with smilies at the end. I miss those.
