I saw in today's news that the Comdex trade show scheduled for November 2004 has been cancelled due to plummeting attendance numbers.

The 2005 show is probably not going to happen either.

I remember when Comdex was THE industry trade show.

Hi Eric;
I just thought I should console you by saying that I remember when there were "The
Eastern Joint Computer Conference & "The Western Joint Computer Conference" each year, and then they became "The Spring Joint ---" and the "Fall Joint -----". After that, we went to the "National Computer Conference" whih were usually (but not always) held in Vegas one year and Atlantic City the alternate year. Then COMDEX came along and they held both for a couple years until the venture capital started showing it's presence in the Personal Computer industry and within one or two years the NCC was history.
