Congratulations for surviving Cinco de Mayo. It’s now Seis de Mayo, which isn’t anything special… except for all the awesome events kicking off today!
Cytrix Synergy San Francisco runs through the whole week to provide everything you ever needed to know about cloud computing, virtualization and networking. This is an in-depth, multimedia event covering everything from mobile to television with over 100 business sessions and targeted tracks.
The Millenial Mega Mashup may or may not pit human wrestlers against robot opponents in a battle of technology and will. Okay, it doesn’t. It’s really a focused event helping create innovative strategies to target the 8-30 year-old demographic.
For those of you obsessed with polished chrome and shiny rims, you can find the absolute best in car cleaning technology at the Car Care World Expo, a show dedicated to the washing of cars.
A triple threat of fashionable events are taking hold of New York City this week, each running concurrently and complementing each other. Moda Manhattan is an upscale trade event boasting more than 30 product categories from elegant to sporty. FAME is a premiere fashion venue for the junior to young contemporary market. Finally, AccessoriesTheShow displays a wide range of knick knacks to complement the styles you acquire at Moda and FAME.
SIMposium USA is making an effort at tackling the burgeoning and complicated issue of security in the world of mobile devices by compiling a wide range of expertise to hammer out some solutions.
For those of you ready and willing to embrace any new meme (or laugh really, really hard), get ready for “actual cannibal Shia Lebeouf.” ‘Nuff said.
After that, I think we need something with a wee bit more substance. It turns out Scientists have created something that actually traveled faster than the speed of light, a feat which has been assumed to be impossible since Einstein described light speed as the speed limit of the universe. It’s not the breakthrough of the century (more like a gimmick) but takes us one step closer to dismantling everything we know about the universe and leading us to the inevitable realization that we actually have no clue what the hell is going on around us.
The Avengers was the sensation of the weekend all over the world, smashing opening weekend records by raking in $200 million here in the US and a total of $642 million worldwide. That’s the GDP of a small country. Probably. Apparently, people still like superhero movies. Alot.
