Event with Digital Photo stuff
If you're at all interested in digital cameras, there's an event I'm going to in NYC in October (14-17) called Digital Life that might be worth checking out-- it's basically a big consumer electronics show where you can preview a lot of new technolgies that are coming out, in an environment where you can chat with experts, compare, etc. They'll have a bunch of the new cameras, photo software, etc.
Plus there are seminars on finding a camera that's right for you (if you're a newbie), as well as one on photo manipulation and a workshop about digital scrapbooking (I dunno... sounds interesting). If you're in the area, it might be worth checking out-- their website is www.digitallife.com.
