crap and more crap. i can't believe how much stuff exists in the world. yesterday i manned the violight 'booth' at the new york international gift fair in the javitz center in nyc. this trade show takes up the entire javitz center plus both exhibit piers at the ship terminals a few blocks uptown. thousands of vendors, tens of thousands of visitors, and it's non stop from sunday through thursday...almost twice as long as other trade shows. there must be millions of items at this show that nobody really needs. on some level it seems wasteful and materialistic; on another level it's amazing to see what people can create from their imagination. life is a pretty cool thing to observe.
