I realize this has nothing to do with my typical subject matter but as you know as I get closer to a trade show I do look for nice segues to help me discuss the show. For example, next week, ITEXPO will be held in Los Angeles and coincidentally about an hour or so ago, Kanye West was arrested in Los Angeles.
So coming to ITEXPO can not only be good for your career and help you supply your users with a better IP communications experience, you can come to the show in the city where Kanye West was actually arrested. If you come to the show via LAX, you can actually visit the airport and perhaps gate where Mr. West — famous for the song Gold Digger and Stronger among others — was handcuffed and taken away.
With any luck — being LA and all — you may get to see other celebrities arrested on your way to the show as well. If you do — be sure to drop me a line.
Silliness aside — we are all looking forward to seeing you next week in LA.
