I bookmarked this NYT article about the Text Generation Gap a couple weeks ago, and finally got around to it today. Sure, the article came to all of the obvious conclusions, but for those of us working in social, interactive media, it’s certainly a decent read. Anecdote-heavy, it’s a nice collection of mini case studies on shifting communication habits.

After following up with the folks I met (and re-met) this year, it’s clear that the Digital Signage Expo in Vegas was a huge win for everyone. This is our third year in attendance, and every year it trumps the previous show in both size and quality. It’s always well run, and the ExpoNation team sure is patient… I know how many questions that I lob at Colin Berry and Chris Gibbs, so I can only imagine the stuffed inboxes they wade through getting ready for the show.
They’re now offering a Digital Signage Expo East in Philly this September. I’d love to get an idea of who’s going and who’s waiting until Vegas ’09. What’s the word? Who’s down for a high-res, interactive cheesesteak?
All of us LocaModans are back from the Digital Signage Expo out in Vegas. This was our third year exhibiting, and certifiably the best one yet. The energy and interest levels were running high, and I only partially attribute that to the perpetual mega-line at the convention center Starbucks.
As for a post show wrap-up, I will say that the Beatles Love Cirque de Soleil trumped even Panasonic’s 103-inch plasma (even though I spent a good part of two days ogling it). Please see below for my debut as a true Beatles wanna-be (at least from a signage perspective). Now how about getting a little Wiffiti action in that rainbow hallway?
