CEDIA, AHOY ...!

                             

It was an exciting day here in Denver at the CEDIA EXPO, a convention bringing together high-end technology installers (the professionals who install expensive audio-video networks in people's homes) with technology companies and movie studios.  It's a big playground for anyone who likes fancy gizmos ranging from 100-inch flat screen televisions to remote controls that connect practically every electrical appliance in your home.  While I'm here for a board meeting of DEG: The Digital Entertainment Group and for some other events, the real highlight of my trip so far was last night when an A-list movie director asked me and some colleagues at other companies if we could scrape together $4.2 Billion to upgrade movie theaters throughout the U.S.  If anyone has some spare change, I'm accepting donations ...!

Oh if there is one thing I'd spend billions on (if I had some) would be high-end geek toys. And fancy movie theaters. Enjoy!

Well, I would rather my money be spent on movie theater upgrades than what our current Pres is spending it on. Actually, I just sent money to these guys:

Maybe you could put up a jar for spare change...like tips...dunno, somewhere!!  You'd think the movie theaters would have excess revenue considering the ticket prices AND concession prices!!  Highway robbery :)
