It's an end-of-life conference. The big feature is a guy in a white turtleneck who announces what technologies won't be available anymore. Really blunt-edge technologies. Everyone at the conference is talking about what this guy - this guru of a man - will declare obsolete. It was at this conference that they buried Betamax, 8-track and the 2e.
This year, they retired Hufu, CVS, the VCR, the piccolo, and the voice-rounded colorator.
"What's a voice-rounded colorator?" I asked one expert.
He sighed sadly, "We'll never know now, will we?"
You'll see it all in my article, which'll be hitting the magazine racks next week.
